A decentralised infrastructure for healthcare

Nuts is a fresh look at an old problem. Nuts is the realisation that the way medical data is currently being shared is pretty crazy.

And Nuts is a collaboration of organisations that believe it is time for shared facilities ("Nutsvoorzieningen" in Dutch), a network built by anyone for everyone. The necessary infrastructure to communicate medical data in the primary care process.

Because it really is possible to work together using computers instead of fax machines in healthcare. And it's possible to do so safely, securely and with no extra costs.

Connection Procedure

The procedure to become a Nuts participant with a current connection agreement is as follows:

  • Chamber of Commerce (KvK) number of the organization.
  • Organization's website.
  • Contact information (phone numbers) of one or more authorized signatories, as requested in the agreement under "parties." (Email addresses must match the domain name of the organization's website.)
  • Include the email addresses of these authorized signatories in the cc field of the email.

  • The Nuts foundation will contact the authorized signatory(ies) for verification. Subsequently, an invitation will be sent to these email addresses via Docusign to digitally sign the agreement.
