priorities will temporary negatively affect customer acquisitions and slow down
customer implementations as well as some operational customer activity.

need for new value-creating and effective digital solutions - is very strong.
The background to this  is the underlying trends, with a growing ageing
population and an increased outpatient healthcare in a hard-pressed public
