VUmc - Narrowcasting

Created a communication platform for sharing news and events with employees through narrowcasting and mobile apps

About the project

The department AOZ at the VU Medical Center in Amsterdam wanted for distributing news to specific groups of staff. The management of the department AOZ asked YTEC Medical to support daily news updates with a new IT solution.

YTEC Medical developed a narrowcasting system that shows news items on TV screens placed throughout the department. The news also appears on mobile devices through a news application. The news items are only shown to selected groups, such as surgeons or nurses, and repeatedly appear for a set period.

YTEC Medical has also developed a mobile news application for news updates. Secretaries can indicate which groups of professionals get to see a certain news update. The department AOZ is now using this application for over a year. It supports the smooth communication of news messages.
