Healthcare

Health care is a relatively new market for Intergo. We would like to participate in this sector motivated to increase patient safety and the safety / health of employees. Example issues are: possible errors in the interaction between humans and technology / product such as appearance or the dose of medication, operation of medical equipment, etc. We can support this in the form of (a contribution to) risk analysis focusing on human factors. Also, accident or incident investigation is among our skills.

More info can be found on our mini-site about this topic: http://www.humanerror.nl.

Finally, we also have experience in physical workload and logistics in hospitals, ranging from review of building plans, design of beds and food carts, etc.
