Healthskouts HOSPITALS

Healthskouts HOSPITAL is a continuous analysis of the latest technologies, working methods and business models of the hospital of the future, and how these can be applied today in your own environment.

Our research focus

  • Clinical Decision Support and better support of care pathways
  • Population Health Management with AI
