What Forcare offers
Forcare offers, besides the usual package, an open workspace full of smart and pragmatic people with a straightforward communication style. The environment is small enough for you to be recognized for your achievements, yet Forcare/Philips is big enough to offer opportunities inside and outside the Netherlands. We look honestly at ourselves and try to learn from our mistakes.

There is good coffee, regular chocolate and a communal lunch where the CEO can sit next to an IT support intern. Besides working passionately to improve healthcare, we also allow ourselves to relax with activities that vary from cultural outings and coding challenges to indulging ourselves in (sometimes geeky) humor.

About Forcare
Forcare’s main message is “Empower your flow”. This message is directed at healthcare professionals and institutions alike. They do this through standards (IHE/HL7/DICOM) based exchange of medical information, like medical images, reports and other content. Content is unlocked from hospital silos to enable effortless sharing with users and institutions outside the hospital walls. We deliver our solutions on-premise and in the (AWS) cloud.

With offices in Zeist, The Netherlands (HQ, 60 people) and Toronto, Canada, Forcare is active in Europe, the Middle-East, Canada and the USA. Recently acquired by Philips, Forcare’s ambition is to grow at an accelerated pace in the coming years and seize the global increase in demand for interoperability and standardization in digital health care.
