Our team

Maija Laukkanen

CEO, Sales

+358 40 539 0741

At Clinipower I focus on constantly scanning customer needs and finding new experts to join our team. When I founded Clinipower, my idea was to offer various customers the kind of best industry expertise for which only large companies usually have resources. A topic close to my heart is spreading the culture of patient safety within the high tech industry.

My biggest dream is to go global on a larger scale: the Finnish know-how in health care digitalization is very strong, and taking it to international markets is something we are eager to facilitate.

Outi Kaasinen

Director, Sales and Business Development
outi.kaasinen@clinipower.fi
+358 40 157 3100

I specialize in the entire cycle of business development from strategy planning to implementation, including sales initiation and service design. I’m essentially both a visionary and a maker.

I see product development as co-creation with the customer, and it pays to start the collaboration as soon as a product idea comes up. The product is made for the user, and a successful innovation is ready only when it works seamlessly in the user environment. I have strong faith in people’s creativity, and a strategically sound solution will always come up if we sit down together and think.

Hannele Toroi

Director, Quality and Regulation
hannele.toroi@clinipower.fi
+358 40 831 8410

I specialize in quality management systems and regulatory requirements. For me, the best thing about a quality manager’s job is that I can genuinely help the customer get forward. I often think of myself as an interpreter between a customer and the regulatory authority, working to make sure they speak the same language. My favourite part of the quality process are internal audits.

I’m curious and investigative. Seeking information is my passion. I know a little about a lot of things. I know a lot about this field, and what I don’t know, I’ll find out.

Pekka Kola

Senior Advisor, Technology and Architecture
pekka.kola@clinipower.fi
+358 40 573 1619

I specialize in managing medical software development projects. I often describe a product development project like this: first, you need to find the forest to get lost in, and then find the path to get out. Product development is pruning and trimming until you get to the finished product – and it may often be different from the developers initial idea. From the first steps on, it’s important to remember that top-notch software can only be created in tight co-operation with the end users.

I’ve been a startup entrepreneur three times. I’m also contributing to the development of industry standards in the HL7 Finland Association and representing Finland in a work group of the HL7 International Association.

Kimmo Vauhkonen

Senior Advisor, Quality and Regulation
kimmo.vauhkonen@clinipower.fi
+358 40 167 6597

I specialize in health tech quality and risk management, regulatory compliance and life cycle management of software products. I want to do my part to support Finnish companies in the jungle of regulation, so that new healthcare products can be launched successfully.

For me, building a quality system together with a customer is always an interesting process. Patient safety is the cornerstone of health tech, and it should be kept in mind through every phase of product development. Although there are plenty of regulative requirements, they can be integrated as a seamless part of a customer’s practice by setting up clear operational models and procedures.

Mari Tikka

Senior Advisor, Clinical Environment
mari.tikka@clinipower.fi
+358 40 167 8198

I specialize in clinical evaluation of medical devices and software. My background is clinical: I’m an ICU nurse. I review the software from care personnel’s point of view and make sure it’s safe for patients and personnel and also fulfills the current guidelines of care.

For me, a software project is a fascinating challenge. It’s a marathon, and there will be moments of exhaustion. But after taking a breath, methods will be found to reach the goal. When the software is ready and implemented, I feel like handing out medals for everybody! That’s when change becomes reality.

Juha Kaasinen

Senior Advisor, Usability and User Experience
juha.kaasinen@clinipower.fi
+358 40 838 3956

I specialize in product and service design, conceptualization and evaluation. When the goal is to develop a successful product, user experience and safety are the key areas to consider.

Health tech is basically about improving people’s life and their life management, and that’s what I like to be involved in. What also fascinates me in this industry is that it brings together two worlds: how to promote innovation and agile product development and embed the strict regulatory requirements into it.

Kristiina Mäki

Junior Advisor, Services and Business Development
kristiina.maki@clinipower.fi
+358 50 919 4056

At Clinipower, I work with versatile topics such as development of services and digital content creation and visibility. The combination of human-centricity and technology interests me in the field of health tech. Working in this field I can utilize my study background from technology, design thinking, and business development.

I like searching for information and aim to understand the big picture. I find it inspiring to utilize problem-solving approaches that help investigate the origins of an observed challenge and formulate an appropriate solution based on the collected information.

Christian Wagner

Senior Advisor, Product Portfolio Management
christian.wagner@clinipower.fi
+43 660 343 6880

I specialize in product management and business development. Digital innovations can help people very much, if they are done the right way, and that takes a dedicated team.

I’ve worked all over the globe facilitating and building product development teams. I am from Salzburg, Austria, but I think of myself as a citizen of the world. I like being able to spark an idea, get people committed to think together – even challenge them a little if need be. I create trust by being totally committed myself: I only take on projects I believe in, so I am always all in.
