Mint Solutions appoints Marc van Gelder to the Supervisory Board

Mint Solutions, inventor of MedEye - a solution that prevents medication errors in hospitals and other institutions - appointed Marc van Gelder to the Supervisory Board. In this position, Van Gelder with five other members, will oversee strategy for international expansion of MedEye. MedEye has been successfully implemented in hospitals in the Netherlands, but in the coming months, will start to extend into Belgium and the UK.

Van Gelder is excited about the solutions developed by Mint Solutions. "In hospitals, medication errors occur more than we think.  MedEye’s approach to this problem, by focusing on making the work at the bedside safer and more efficient, appeals to me very much."

The newly appointed board member has extensive experience in the healthcare sector as a senior executive. "In his work Marc has always been focused on providing better care for patients, making high quality service more accessible. That fits perfectly with our mission as a company. Our goal is to provide higher quality care by eradicating preventable medication errors,” said Gauti Reynisson, CEO and co-founder of Mint Solutions.

Van Gelder was the CEO of Mediq for nine years. In this position he has transformed Mediq, a Dutch pharmaceutical wholesaler and pharmacy chain, into a successful international player in the field of medicines and medical devices. Currently he is a member of several international boards.
