Waarom samenwerken met PITCH?

PITCH trains future caregivers, and it is of high importance for both the future caregivers and the technological companies to work together. For the companies, it is important to learn how to further improve the technology to exhaust its potential, and for the caregivers, it is important to understand the added value of the new technology and how it can be used in care to allow more personalized care per patient, as well as more efficient use of the caregivers time, which is highly important in face of the staff shortage situation which is expected to worsen.
