Ahti aims to improve the health of the citizens of the City of Amsterdam at lower cost. We use our knowledge and experience also to provide services in other parts of the Netherlands. In just a few years, we have been involved in over 80 projects and proposals, either as initiator, partner or manager and we delivered specialized services. Our partnerships give us the opportunity to work across a range of areas and identify the gaps where impact is needed. Our projects illustrate our approach and how we foster innovative and sustainable healthcare solutions.

Main focus areas are a.o. Cardiovascular Risk Management, elderly care, youth care and healthy weight. We turn data into actionable insights, so that municipalities and other organizations can use the available data to improve health and healthcare.
