A revolution begins by looking at things differently. Do you agree?
During the Crimean War (1853-1856), the English suffered great losses. Gunshot wounds are said to be responsible for the high mortality rates, but Florence Nightingale believes otherwise. It is mainly infections that soldiers succumb to. Her dream is to implement hygienic measures on a large scale. When Florence finally convinces her superiors, the number of deaths drop dramatically.
The power of the patient.
Fortunately, we are not at war, but hospital care is under considerable pressure. Aging and a shortage of personnel are obvious causes. Just like Nightingale, we also see something different: the power of the patient remains untapped.
Luscii dreams of a world where patients are actively involved in their healthcare, supported by the artificial intelligence of Luscii vitals, our Clinical Engine. We believe that home measurement, education and contact when necessary are the ingredients required to reduce the consumption of hospital care.
We need your support.
Nightingale is Luscinia in Latin, from which Luscii is derived. Our name is a tribute to the woman who revolutionised healthcare. She didn’t have it easy. It took a lot of effort to convince the conservative army command of the usefulness of hygiene. Even though the need was extremely high.
We too have that sense of urgency. In ten years’ time, there will be more than 2 million people older than 75 in the Netherlands alone. That is 60% more than now. We therefore desperately need your support. Do you believe in a future where staying at home and expert supervision go hand in hand with the help of digital technology? Then join us. And we’ll work together on future-proof hospital care for everyone.
