We are the combination of the knowledge and experience of these large organisations and the passion and drive of a start-up. We are currently building a completely new platform that will bring healthcare to the cloud. We are using the latest technologies. With this, we are not only laying the foundation for hospitals and healthcare institutions to make the transition in a transparent manner, but are also building two completely new applications on the platform in one go. For instance, we will now also support GPs and home care nurses. We will also continue to work for hospitals and healthcare institutions. We build and implement the Clinical Workstation (KWS), a software platform for supporting medical care and managing electronic patient records within hospitals. Our platform is used by almost half of Flemish hospitals in their daily operations. You have probably already come into contact with it in a hospital, maybe you have even used our patient app mynexuzhealth. Do you want to take our next big step with us?
