- DXC and Cegeka will transform the healthcare experience of millions of Belgian citizens as part of a European Commission initiative
BRUSSELS, April 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC) has been contracted by the Flemish government to help digitize healthcare in Belgium. As part of the four-year agreement, valued at approximately $3 million, DXC will work with local business partner Cegeka to create a patient-centric platform that will enable greater connectivity between patients, local health agencies, and medical professionals.
Responsible for the personal well-being of the citizens of Belgium, the Flemish Agency for Care and Health, under the Flemish government, works to empower patients to control their own personalized care plans.
The new digital health platform, consisting of a website and a mobile application, will improve the experience for patients by allowing them to choose care options, treatments and appointments based on their preferences. The platform will provide an accurate, real-time view of the patient and their care plan, enabling seamless and secure collaboration between patients, healthcare providers, and medical professionals, making communication easier, faster, and more accessible.
The new service is scheduled to go live by the end of 2023, with a pilot for patients with long-term or life-limiting illnesses.
The European Commission, the politically independent executive arm of the EU, has funded the initiative as part of its efforts to improve the health of citizens and help EU countries develop innovative and sustainable healthcare systems.
"We are focused on modernizing our public services and we are pleased to continue that work in collaboration with DXC Technology and Cegeka," said Joris Moonens, spokesman for the Flemish Health and Care Agency. We strive to accelerate our IT transformation to develop innovative projects that improve, simplify and speed up our services to citizens."

We are helping the Flemish healthcare system to use the power of data and platform-centric business models to deliver better public services to millions of citizens."
