Consumers indicate that they increasingly want to access their data and communicate via online tools. And new legislation requires all health care providers in The Netherlands to make patient data accessible online available before 1 July 2020. A rapid growth in the use of digital communication and data exchange in healthcare is therefore expected.

Gideon Kreytz, director of Pharmeon: “Our ambition is to further develop ‘Uw Zorg online’ into the leading digital platform for primary healthcare in The Netherlands. The partnership with KPN gives us the power to expand our offering to meet the increasing demand for our services. It strengthens our position as an independent online partner for more than 4,000 healthcare practices.”

In doing so, we do not only pay attention to the provided care and the caregivers, but also to the wellbeing of all Dutch people. Together with Pharmeon, we are making digital healthcare accessible to more and more people. We are therefore very happy with the participation in Pharmeon and look forward to the cooperation.”
