Ecare develops smart and innovative software that supports better and affordable healthcare and that simplifies things for the caregivers itself.
We call our product suite “Puur”. It eliminates unnecessary paper work and overhead so caregivers have more time to focus on the quality of their work and work more efficient.
Marije Kuipers is our product strategist at Ecare. She is currently working on a project in which we develop a care file for nursing homes. In her role, she often visits nursing homes to see how things are done and what the caregivers have to do on a daily basis. The experiences and ideas that she gets from those visits, she takes back with her to Ecare so that we can integrate them in the software that we make.
