Noordwest Ziekenhuisgroep and Luscii start Telemonitoring pilot
The Heart-Lung Centre of the Noordwest Ziekenhuisgroep (Northwest Hospital Group) starts its Telemonitoring pilot with Luscii. With Telemonitoring, patients are followed remotely by a medical specialist and/or nurse specialist while carrying out medical check-ups from home. This means they won’t have to visit the outpatient clinic every time.
During the pilot phase, Noordwest Ziekenhuisgroep will ask 25 heart failure patients and 25 COPD patients to participate for a period of 6 months. The project is a collaboration between Noordwest Ziekenhuisgroep and Luscii.
Today Floor Haak, member of the Board of Directors of the Noordwest Ziekenhuisgroep and Daan Dohmen, founder of Luscii, signed the collaboration agreement for Telemonitoring using Luscii. “This project is great because it is a way to deliver care in a very patient centred and future proof manner. Care of high quality, delivered at the right place”, said Floor Haak.
The signing itself was also completed in an innovative way, using the video communication to practice what we preach.

The role of Luscii at Noordwest Ziekenhuisgroep:
Luscii provides hardware, software and patient support in the Telemonitoring pilot at Noordwest Ziekenhuisgroep. Luscii will help the cardiology and pulmonology department at Noordwest Ziekenhuisgroep to start with the Luscii software. Patients will receive measurement devices and can download the Luscii Vitals and Luscii Contact apps to send in their measurements and have (video)-communication with their care team. Also, after enrolment, Luscii is responsible for all logistics (sending the measurement devices), service and (installation at home) support for patients joining the project.
