Implementation of Homecare as a combination of services and technology. Lessons Learned– Presented by Marc Veldhoven, ZuidZorg at the Health Tech Event which takes place on 08-12-2016 at High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

ZuidZorg started in 2004 with the use of EHealth in combination with HomeCare. In that year we bought a medical Call Centre and started with remote care and personal alert.

In ten years’ time, the client base grew to 15.000 clients for personal alert and 700 clients for remote care. Then (in 2012) we started to experiment with Robot Rose, the Philips Medido, Remote Monitoring of COPD clients, Philips Care Sensus, Track & Trace for dementia, Virtuel consulting, etcetera. This changed our care company enormously.

What did we gain? What did we lose? From the perspective of the client, the coworkers (staff) and the care organization ZuidZorg.

Lesson Learned will be shared with you.
