At Dytter, we’re building a dream. Meet the people behind the platform.
Dytter believes in healthcare with more freedom of choice. Healthcare that’s affordable, accessible, and as simple as it is personal. Our booking app takes care of this, by matching care organizations with independent care providers. Starting in the Netherlands, and expanding to other countries soon.
But who is making all this possible? Meet the people behind the platform.
Inventor and founder
'I founded Dytter because I have a dream: a world where good care can be arranged affordably, quickly and without hassle. My knowledge and experience—and the knowledge and experience of the fantastic people around me—are making sure that dream becomes a reality. Just wait and see.
What do I do besides dream? I set the course, keep us on track, and bring the right people together. Until the day that dream comes true. '
'I screen independent care providers and publish their profiles. I also build the Dytter community by informing, motivating and activating the providers. My twenty years of experience as a healthcare entrepreneur comes in handy: I understand independent care providers and healthcare organizations like no one else. Working at Dytter is great. We have a lot of fun, celebrate successes big and small, and manage to stay positive and full of energy. '
'I maintain contact with the healthcare organizations, and take care of communication with the development team. Before Dytter, I worked in healthcare in a nursing home for six years, but I missed having a real challenge, and never had enough time to spend with patients. Dytter's mission really spoke to my underlying passion for healthcare. Care services are currently so fragmented, through dozens of different channels. But if you can simplify the booking process using an online platform, this potentially leaves more time for patients. '
'Working at the intersection of healthcare and the platform economy has a real social impact: together we can make healthcare more affordable, and ensure that independent care providers enjoy their work. As a business manager, I’m ultimately responsible for Dytter’s secondary business processes, including finance, legal, and human resources. I’m using my knowledge and experience to help Dytter achieve an international rollout, starting with national coverage in the Netherlands. '
'After my training as a social worker, I worked in ambulatory counseling and forensic and acute psychiatry, among other things. Healthcare right now is inadequate due to all the cutbacks and rules, and I stopped wanting to work 'on the floor'. At Dytter, we can make a real impact by simplifying healthcare and making it more accessible. I want to show that things can be done better and faster, by letting care providers and organizations take control themselves.'
'As a programmer I help create our digital products and platforms. Before Dytter I mainly worked in the financial sector, but I really missed seeing a social impact in the things I was developing. But here, we’re improving the way healthcare gets delivered, to make it more affordable. It’s nice to know that the work I’m doing is contributing to a better society. '
'I have 35 years of work experience in both the business and healthcare markets. Now I’m putting that experience to work, keeping everything in the office running smoothly. I love the challenge of bringing a start-up to full maturity—especially when it involves something with real social value, like better, more cost-effective care. Dytter has a particularly pleasant working environment: it’s a dynamic organization with short lines of communication and proactive, highly motivated colleagues. '
Developer en innovator
'For us, and especially for the care providers and organizations that use our platform, it’s super important that Dytter works perfectly. With my experience in devising and developing smart technology, it’s my job to make that happen. And I enjoy it: new technology makes my heart beat faster. Especially when I work all day with great people who want to make a positive impact on this world. '
'I’ve spent the past 25 years as a care director for disabled and elderly patients, and I draw on this experience when I support Dytter with advice and action.
I think Dytter's options for matching care workers with care recipients are fantastic. It’s a unique way of organizing healthcare quickly and simply, and that brings costs down. We’ve got big ambitions too. Within five years we want to organize a substantial part of (home) care through our platform. But our ultimate goal is to directly match individual care recipients and care providers. '
Projects & Platform Development and Connector
Dytter and I share the same mission: to bring innovation to healthcare, and to make health services simpler, more affordable, and more personal. It’s my job to make sure the technology and the organization work together hand in hand; my experience working with public sector software and services helps make this possible. Everyone at Dytter is genuinely motivated, to get the best out of themselves, and do their best to improve healthcare. A lot of organizations talk the talk, but this team walks the walk.
Because of my deep background in the healthcare industry, I know better than anyone how providers and caregivers think and work. Working with this team, I want to ensure that healthcare is as fast and simple as it can be. I’m the community manager’s right hand, which means I handle the screening of all independent caregivers, to get them available for placement with a care organization as quickly as possible. It’s also a lot of fun working at Dytter, because I get to collaborate with colleagues who are passionate about healthcare, and really believe in our cause.
Marketing and Communication
Working here is like making a dream into reality: good, affordable healthcare for everyone. I mean, who wouldn’t want that? The personal story behind Dytter’s founding immediately appealed to me. I’m part of the marketing communication team, helping to share Dytter’s story with the rest of the Netherlands...and eventually the rest of Europe, and beyond. My passion for communication comes from my experience in sports marketing, and it’s something I apply every day. It’s a real pleasure to work alongside such passionate colleagues.
I believe in the strength of the individual. Organizing healthcare in a different way is a dream of mine, so it’s great to let that passion fly, and apply my experience as a healthcare IT and innovation manager. I like the energy that you get in a startup, and this sense of pioneering, where everything is new, and every day demands creativity and perseverance.
