Digitizing the hospital together

Dear Sir or Madam,

Digitization projects in the hospital are often controlled from the top level. But why actually? In the end, it is still the staff who need to deal with new tools and work efficiently in new processes. This is why the platform inngo now wants to help hospitals include users and departments in the process and to define goals and needs together. Read in our current interview how this works!

Enjoy reading!
