Holland Capital invests in innovative primary care IT platform HealthConnected
Amsterdam/Alkmaar, September 1st, 2020 – Holland Capital, a Dutch based investment firm, invests in HealthConnected, a healthcare IT platform for the primary care market. This investment enables HealthConnected to focus on the expansion to new regions in the Netherlands and to broaden its platform service offering. Next to the currently available solution for health care chains (Ketenzorg or KIS), the platform will expand with dedicated services for GP centres (HAPIS) and general practitioners (HIS).
Experienced team strives for innovation
HealthConnected is established out of the need for a modern and user-friendly IT platform and to solve the lack of data exchange in primary care. Paul Witteman founded the platform in 2017 and in spring 2019, Ab Elzenga (former CEO Labelsoft) joined the company. As of today, HealthConnected employs an experienced team of managers and developers who are familiar within the field of primary care. Jacco Rempe (Director HONK) endorses the motto “for and by care providers”:
“HealthConnected offers a modern and user friendly IT solution that combines primary care expertise and the willingness to cooperate with healthcare professionals.”
Modern web based platform with central patient record
HealthConnected offers a modern web based platform for healthcare workers with a fully integrated patient record that is accessible in real time and from any location. The platform is already in use in multiple regions and the company will expand its geographical foothold in the near future. In this way, HealthConnected responds to the trend of regionalization and the need for ease of use. Jan-Frens van Giessel (partner Healthcare) states: “HealthConnected offers a unique and innovative patient-centered IT solution for primary care. We are convinced that HealthConnected will improve both the quality and efficiency of healthcare in the Netherlands.
A cooperation that provides certainty and sharp knowledge
With the investment of Holland Capital, HealthConnected is able to further develop the platform to the needs of healthcare professionals and HealthConnected will get access to Holland Capital’s healthcare knowledge and network. Paul Witteman (CEO HealthConnected):“Holland Capital is a sparring partner who – with relevant partners and advisors – will help us improve our strategic positioning and achieve our ambitious technical and economic goals.”
The development of the HealthConnected platform is initiated in 2017, led by the HONK Groep and former director Paul Witteman. Medio 2019, HealthConnected is detached from the HONK Groep, to make a nationwide rollout possible. HealthConnected offers a regional IT healthcare platform, including an Elektronisch Patiënten Dossier (EPD) functionality, to connect primary care. Healthcare workers in primary care use the platform amongst others for reporting and the options to communicate, refer and consult. HealthConnected focuses on care regions, of which the Netherlands has over 100.
