He has also been a serial entrepreneur in healthcare IT from the mid 80’s until the year 2000 when he started focusing on Medixine.

“Medixine is a pioneer in e-health solutions and our holistic vision has always been ahead of it’s time. Now the market is ready for Medixine’s offering and we are looking forward to strong international growth. It is rewarding to see that our brilliant team’s years of work bears fruit.”
