Nedap uses the RFID technology-based Nokia Field Force Solution in Dutch healthcare market


Allévo is the first to apply NFC technology for Delivery of Home Health Care

February 07, 2006, Espoo, Finland - Allévo is enhancing the delivery of home health care with Nedap’s iO TouchPro solution, a powerful combination of the successful iO concept for Care registration and Nokia Field Force Solution. Allévo Home Care Institute’s 700 employees are using the RFID technology to improve the delivery of service to its patients across the Netherlands.

“Using iO TouchPro, our more than 700 nurses can quickly and reliably register their visits with their patients, freeing up valuable time to spend with the patient. And, the iO Concept ensures that we have the most up-to-date, accurate information available at all times,” said Theo van Campen, CEO Allévo “A leader in the health care space, Allévo continues to seek innovations that will enhance the quality of care we deliver to our clients. Nokia’s RFID technology-based solution allows us to deliver better service, and allows us to maintain up-to-date, accurate information real-time.”

In the iO concept every client is provided with a contact free chip card when they become Allévo clients. At each visit, the nurse touches the chip card using a Nokia 3220 phone with RFID reader to register their visit thus eliminating the time needed to fill in forms. In addition, the nurse has secure access to the most up-to-date information on the client allowing them to focus on delivering care.

With the introduction of the iO TouchPro Nedap strengthens its position as a market leader in the Dutch healthcare market. The expectation is that more healthcare organizations will follow the example of Allévo in the coming months.

“We are pleased to that Allévo has chosen Nokia RFID technology-based solution to continue their innovations in the delivery of health care services,” said Petri Vesikivi, Head of Nokia Workforce Solutions at Nokia Ventures Organization. “The Nokia Field Force solution is designed for enterprises with mobile workforce generating large number of transactions in industries as domiciliary healthcare, security & guarding, and field maintenance.”
