At the risk of sounding as middle aged consultant: let’s do it together, at a good pace!

Maria started her career in the health care industry as a nurse, and has worked as a nurse in surgery, anaesthesiology, and intensive care in both public as well as private health care organisations. For many years she has been involved in developing and implementing patient information systems, and has subsequently acted in the role of their head designer. In addition to this she has worked as a self-employed expert in projects addressing IT development, and cutbacks in health care, and public administration.

Maria has been working in Salivirta since 2017.
