Deployment country



Headquartered in the Netherlands, Meander Medical Center serves approximately 320,000 people in a region that includes Amersfoort, Baarn, Barneveld and Nijkerk. It employs more than 3,000 professional staff and 200 medical specialists who handle over 500,000 clinical visits annually, providing care in consultation with general practitioners, nursing homes and health insurers.

Business need
Seeking inventive ways to better serve patients, Meander Medical Center needed a portal platform and solution implementation partner to help deliver on its vision for a digital healing environment.

Meander contracted with IBM Premier Business Partner Funatic to design and deploy an interactive patient portal and mobile apps built on IBM Digital Experience software.

As the number of registered patient portal and mobile app users grows, Meander is moving forward on delivering new digital services and enhancing care coordination by deploying collaborative intranet and extranet capabilities.
