The collaboration is an initiative of Diederik Gommers of the NVIC (Dutch Association for Intensive Care) and is led by Paul Elbers, MD, PhD, EDIC Intensivist of Amsterdam UMC and founder of AMDS. Health insurers in the Netherlands supports with an investment of 2 million euros.
“During the corona crisis, many intensive care workers shared data on the treatment of corona patients” , says chairman of the NVIC Diederik Gommers, “As a result, we now know much more precisely how to ventilate and which medicines work. ” Intensivist and project manager Paul Elbers van Amsterdam UMC adds: “It was great to see that almost all Dutch ICs wanted to participate immediately. So it makes sense to continue this collaboration, because we can also learn a lot from each other outside of corona. ”
