We give power back to the healthcare system.

We aren’t a staffing agency – we are a digital service where healthcare providers and healthcare professionals can find each other. Transparent reviews, anonymous profiles, and a direct dialog create an impartial, non-discriminatory labor market. No greedy middlemen. No hidden fees. All for the benefit of the healthcare system.

Passionate in our duty to empower the healthcare system

Since 2019, we have striven to give power back to the healthcare system. It should be simple to find healthcare personnel, and we are convinced that a direct dialog between healthcare providers and healthcare personnel simplifies this process, and creates a deeper relationship between employers and employees. This produces continuity – something that ultimately benefits patients and the healthcare system as a whole.

“We want to give power back to healthcare professionals and put them in the driver’s seat. We do this by cutting out middlemen, creating more financial space, and reducing complicated admin.”

How it all began

Dr. Meybod Kia, a specialist in Family Medicine, took an assignment at a clinic in northern Sweden through a staffing agency to try something new. He was happy there, was very popular with the patients, and would have liked to stay. However, one day the staffing agency informed him that the clinic no longer needed him. It later turned out the clinic had heard Meybod himself wanted to leave. And instead, they had employed a less experienced clinician – for the same cost.

The winner in this story was the staffing agency, which had taken on a cheaper clinician and thus increased its profits. The losers were the patients and the taxpayers. Meybod decided to do something to combat these short-term staffing solutions, which are so expensive for the healthcare system. Soon after, he met Hani Movahed, a software engineer... and Eppow was born. Meybod and Hani interviewed clinicians, nurses, and county councils to understand what was required to create the conditions for secure, long-term assignments and jobs. Both healthcare providers and professionals reacted very positively and a new meeting place took shape. Today Eppow has thousands of satisfied users – and the number increases every day!

“Eppow is democratizing healthcare. The ultimate aim is to make healthcare better for everyone, and to offer the right personnel in the right place, and with the right conditions through our service.”
