Following a donation by the IT department in March 2017, TommyCares was able to hand over 20 iPads to the Emma Children's Hospital in Amsterdam.
These iPads will be used for the NICU app (NICU: Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), through which parents of NICU babies can keep a diary and find relevant info to help them with the care of their ill child.
In the next few years the Hospital Foundation will be raising attention and funds for the NICU, where the babies are treated and cared for.
Funds will be used to further develop the NICU app and to support scientific research, but also to renew the department to realize a worldwide leading center of expertise. The planned joint venture with the VU Hospital in Amsterdam is expected to stengthen these efforts even more.
