Health, care and costs
The Amsterdam health & technology institute started in 2014 with a small team and the ambition to improve the quality of care against lower costs. In the kick-off phase, ahti worked together with a broad spectrum of partners in more than 80 projects and proposals. With the continued support of the City of Amsterdam, ahti will keep working on innovation in health for the City and its residents.
