Tom de Bruijn, Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, and Ingrid Thijssen, President of VNO-NCW, (virtually) visited ICT Group

On Monday, November 22, Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Tom de Bruijn and Ingrid Thijssen, President of VNO-NCW, paid us a virtual visit. Also present was Prof. Mireille Bekker, professor of obstetrics and gynecologist at UMC Utrecht. The main topics of discussion during this meeting were digitization and home monitoring in healthcare.

Technology allows the healthcare provider to create the ideal care pathway for the patient, and home monitoring is an excellent example of how this service offers pregnant women the benefit of the medical expertise of a physician consultant without the hassle of a trip to the hospital-or, in some cases, an overnight stay there. According to Bekker, patients are very satisfied with this form of care.

During the visit, there was a demonstration of the home monitoring device for pregnant women by ICT Healthcare. We also shared our experience and points of interest when it comes to doing business in Germany and other European countries.

Amsterdam UMC obstetrics implements MososNXT CTG

High quality care for mother and child is the focus at the obstetrics department of the Amsterdam UMC. We use data from diagnostics and treatments to innovate and improve care. Working in an integrated electronic obstetrics environment is necessary to take further steps. Amsterdam UMC has chosen to integrate MososNXT CTG, a solution of ICT Healthcare Technology Solutions (ICT HCTS), with their Electronic Medical Record (EMR). At a glance and without switching to another program, the cardiotocography, or heart rate variability of the child, together with the current status of labor activity of the mother is available allowing adequate and quick decisions during a threatened pregnancy and parturition.

Amsterdam UMC, like many (academic) hospitals, uses a central EMR, in this case EPIC. It should not take extra actions for the obstetric care workers to find the patient information, especially in acute situations. All relevant patient information must be available centrally whereby the data and information is also automatically stored in the EMR. In addition, the CTG solution should have the right functionality, reliability and be user-friendly.

Rob Hogeweg, Cluster Director at ICT Healthcare Technology Solutions: “MososNXT CTG brings over 35 years of experience in obstetrics into an ultra modern solution. Our vision is that all our solutions must be able to integrate seamlessly with an EMR and the information must be available securely at any time and any place. This new generation of software makes seamless integration possible. The solution is fully web-based, making information available from anywhere on a tablet. We are extremely proud that the Amsterdam UMC has chosen ICT Healthcare with the MososNXT CTG solution.”

Support in decentralization of care
MososNXT CTG is also suitable for environments in which primary and secondary care work closely together. For example, the software integrates with Sense4Baby, a mobile version of a CTG monitor for home monitoring and in use at midwifery practices. The live stream of a CTG made at home or at the midwife’s office can be assessed directly by a hospital specialist. In this way we contribute to innovation and improvement of diagnostics to create quality of life for the pregnant woman and her child.

Turnn with mobility awareness campaign at Dutch Design Week Eindhoven

Smarter, more sustainable and safer travel is a must. Certainly in a fast-growing region like Brainport Eindhoven. In order to keep the region accessible, liveable and safe, Turnn (part of ICT Group), Brainport Development, the Municipality of Eindhoven and ASML are launching an awareness campaign and actions this month to encourage employees of Brainport companies to travel smarter, safer and more sustainably. With the slogan: ‘How zero are you?’ and a serious game, they are calling on employers and employees in the Brainport region to think about mobility.

Exhibition fromAntoBrainport during Dutch Design Week

On Monday, October 4th, the initiators started the awareness campaign for employers and employees. With a serious game that inspires you to think about how you travel more sustainably, the parties will visit the campuses in the region. The central question is: “How zero are you?” During the Dutch Design Week (DDW) from 16 to 24 October, the serious game will be set up for a broad audience. In it, Turnn takes travellers on a journey into the future of sustainable mobility. This will be brought to life at the exhibition during DDW.

In an interactive and visual way, a picture is formed of the Mobility As a Service (MaaS) pilot that was recently launched to keep the Brainport region liveable and accessible. The cooperation with ASML, Eindhoven municipality and Brainport Development to stimulate sustainable business travel is central to this.

Turnn app ready for regional scaling

One of the possibilities for more sustainable travel is the MaaS project with the Turnn app. With it, employees can plan, book and pay for their business trips. “The Turnn MaaS app has been extensively tested by more than 750 users over the past period,” says Davy van de Haar, one of the people involved in Turnn (part of ICT Group). “Together with the users, we improved the app and prepared it for regional scaling. With Turnn, companies will be able to travel by train without an OV chip card, declare their own transport and book shared transport from 1 October.”

Awareness campaign for more sustainable, smarter and safer travel in Brainport

Awareness campaign for more sustainable, smarter and safer travel in Brainport

Smarter, more sustainable and safer travel is a must. Certainly in a fast-growing region like Brainport Eindhoven. To keep the region accessible, liveable and safe, Brainport Development, Turnn, the Municipality of Eindhoven and ASML are launching an awareness campaign and actions in October to encourage employees of Brainport companies to travel smarter, safer and more sustainably. With the slogan: ‘How zero are you?’ and a serious game, they call on employers and employees in the Brainport region to think about mobility.

The CBS and the RIVM recently announced that greenhouse gas emissions are almost back to pre-Corona levels. This is in spite of the ambition to make Europe climate-neutral by 2050. This requires not only smart technological solutions in the field of mobility, but above all a change in thinking on the part of employers and employees. This is not only good for the environment but also for the economy.

With awareness campaign along the campuses
On Monday 4 October, Brainport Development, Turnn, the municipality of Eindhoven and ASML are launching an awareness campaign for employers and employees. With a serious game that inspires you to think about how you can travel more sustainably, the above parties will visit the campuses in the region. On 4 October, the game will be on display at High Tech Campus Eindhoven. A promotion team will also be present to reach the professionals on campus. The central question is: “How zero are you? During the Dutch Design Week from 16 to 24 October, the serious game will be set up for a broad audience.

Team of 500 Power Women in the Amstel Gold Tour

What an amazing sight to see a special team of 500 women at the start of Amstel Gold Race on Saturday 11 September 2021. ICT Group was the main sponsor of this great initiative by Leontien van Moorsel, Wendy van Dijk and Anouk Smulders.

In this team there were also a number of colleagues from ICT Group. In just two months’ time, these nine power women were trained by Leontien van Moorsel for a long ride through the Limburg hills. The Geulhemerberg, Kloosterberg, Fromberg and of course the Cauberg. Nothing stopped them from reaching the finish line.

 “We are so proud of these women”, says Carla Stuifzand, marketing director. “They have shown that with perseverance, training, fun and togetherness you can achieve anything. I invite you to meet Inge, Priya, Merle, Khushboo, Anisha, Jyotsna, Claudia, Floor and Jolijn and hear their story.”

“Just like cycling, the IT world is still mainly a man’s world”, says CEO Jos Blejie. “We are happy with the influx of women into our company and want to to offer them the opportunity to develop themselves. It was therefore a logical step for us to support the initiative.”

The sponsorship is part of ICT Group’s Go for IT! campaign, in which well-being, vitality, inclusiveness and collaboration are key.
