Are you a project leader who knows how to deliver a software implementation project within timing, budget and scope? Do you want to ensure, together with the team, that our products are successfully rolled out in hospitals? And would you like to work in a close-knit, driven and passionate team? Then nexuzhealth has the challenge for you! Nexuzhealth is the Flemish market leader in the management of electronic patient records (EPD). Founded in 2016 by UZ Leuven and Cegeka, it builds on 25 years of development on the Clinical Workstation (KWS) within UZ Leuven. Nexuzhealth thus combines the years of experience of both organizations in ICT and healthcare with the passion of a startup. By offering the collaboration between different hospitals and the patient in a transparent and unambiguous manner, nexuzhealth increases the quality of the care provision. Today, 37 Flemish hospitals and care institutions already work with KWS, accounting for approximately half of the Flemish hospital beds. Patients are also finding their way to mynexuzhealth.be, the platform where every patient from an affiliated healthcare institution can consult his or her own file free of charge. Some 1 million patients already use the file in their contacts with their care team, either via computer or smartphone.#LI-LC1
