"I look forward to working with Brighter, a visionary company with high ambitions in a very large market. Healthcare must be cheaper, more digital and help patients get higher quality of life. This is what Brighter's first solution Aciste® means for diabetes, one of the world's largest diseases, says Catarina Ihre.
Catarina Ihre holds a degree in Economics from Uppsala University. She has worked for 15 years as an analyst and for 11 years as IR manager in three of the 30 companies whose stock is traded most on Nasdaq Stockholm.
"I am very pleased that Catarina wants to help Brighter to navigate in what I expect to be a very offensive and expansive period. Her deep global experience from both the investor and the corporate side of investor relations will strengthen the board's work on many levels, says Brighter's founder and CEO Truls Sjöstedt.

Brighter's solution Actiste® handles most of the self-monitoring and treatment of insulin-treated diabetes in a single easy-to-use device. Measurement of glucose levels, insulin injections, automatic logging, and timing of all activities are performed from a single unit. Actiste is connected via an autonomous and secure mobile connection, and information can be automatically shared with selected recipients through The Benefit Loop®, Brighter's open cloud-based service where data is collected, processed and analyzed with patient consent.
Validated user-generated data, such as test results, can be automatically transferred electronically to many different constituents. The patient selects when and how data is shared and who will have access to it. Through The Benefit Loop, different services can motivate patients with chronic illnesses to change their behavior, which can save lives, reduce relatives' concerns, and release enormous healthcare resources. www.actiste.com
