Summary

Summary: 
A Dutch healthcare organization - consisting of several hospitals - is looking for partners from the ICT / health industry and academic with expertise in developing or providing telemedicine and E-health technologies for preventing medical derailment of chronically ill patients. Cooperation is envisaged within a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Description

Description: 

A Dutch regional healthcare organization is one of the largest top clinical teaching hospitals in the Netherlands, with 3500 employees.

The current Dutch healthcare system is not future-proof to cope with the growing number of chronically ill people due to an aging population. The current care system is not flexible and effective, and rapidly pressurized, as has been demonstrated during the Covid pandemic.

The organization wants to prevent medical derailment of chronically ill patients through timely medical anticipation using home monitoring/diagnostics within a service center. Modern technology with a compatible platform for all disciplines can support the shift from hospital care to more remote care. But then the technology has to be 100% reliable, proven and safe.

The organization is looking for solutions (technologies and methods) and partners from the ICT / healthcare industry and academia, who have experience with developing and implementing telemedicine and E-health technologies for chronically ill patients. These technologies will eventually be managed by the (yet to be established) regional service center.

The partner could help the organization solving this challenge, through development and implement the telemedicine and E-health to prevent the medical derailment of chronically ill patients.

Cooperation is envisaged within the frame of a commercial agreement with technical assistance. Other types of cooperation and agreements may be considered, when fits the purpose.

IMPORTANT: This technology request refers to an innovation challenge published on an open internet platform. If an organization expresses interest before the closing date, it will be guided towards this open innovation platform.
After registration on the platform participants can browse free through other submissions and engage in discussions. All submissions will get feedback by the company on this open platform. The challenge closes on 08-11-2021.
Mind that posts on this platform are not confidential. Beside open discussions on the platform, sharing of confidential information will be made possible on demand.
