Five years ago, the White-Yellow Cross (Wit-Gele Kruis - WGK) launched its online platform mijnWGK. Using this secure website, GPs, hospitals and patients can view the case notes made by the White-Yellow Cross nurses. To make this platform user-friendly on smartphones and to prepare for a new digital revolution in home care, the White-Yellow Cross recently selected a new IT partner. Inetum-Realdolmen helped with the update of the web application, is responsible for hosting and for maintenance, and also developed the mobile app for mijnWGK.
By using modern IT tools, the White-Yellow Cross makes quality care accessible and ensures quality care. mijnWGK brings the nurses as close as possible to the patients by digitally preparing part of the care. For this mijnWGK is securely connected to other medical care systems, including the White-Yellow Cross's Electronic Care Case Notes (Elektronisch Verpleeg Dossier - EVD), their care center, the hospitals' electronic patient case notes, the Collaborative Care Platform (Collaboratief Zorgplatform - CoZo), and other e-health sources. The basic idea is that the more information is known about the patient, the better the caregivers can adapt the care to suit the patient, leading to higher quality of patient care.
