With future-focused innovation at our core, our company name was inspired by the Finnish word for change or transition. From decades-long careers in healthcare technology and executive leadership, our company’s founders, Barry Holleman and Korina Fischer, recognized the need for technology to support better, faster supply chain decisions as part of the industry shift to sustainable, value-based healthcare.
To bring their vision to life, MUUTAA leaders formed an extraordinary development and intelligence team of experts in clinical workflows, medical supply and medication management, emerging technologies, traceability, logistics, health data management, and artificial intelligence.

Way Forward: Clinically
Integrated Supply Chains
At MUUTAA, we understand a clinically integrated supply chain model is the way forward. Today, we are optimizing the purchasing process through patient-driven demand, which enhances micro and macro-level understanding of real-world utilization compared to clinical protocols. As the MUUTAA platform expands and our mission continuously moves closer to our vision, we believe the deep learning made possible through our platform will shed new light on protocol and medication adherence, which can ultimately inform better care and drive better health outcomes.
