Ghent (Belgium), Sept 21 2021 – Awingu announces Marc Van Uytven, a seasoned executive in the healthcare space, to join Awingu as a topic expert and advisor. Already today, Awingu counts many healthcare providers amongst its customers. Marc will help Awingu increase its strategic position in the industry.

Marc Van Uytven has a unique mix of expertise within the healthcare industry, as well as IT industry. Marc was CEO of the OLV hospital in Aalst, Asse and Ninove (2013-2019) and General Manager of the Psychiatric hospital Sint-Franciscus Zottegem (1999-2002). He was CFO/CIO at AZ Groeninge Hospital Kortrijk (2002-2013) and Hospital Kliniek Maria’s Voorzienigheid Kortrijk (1991 – 1999). Furthermore, Marc holds a Board position in Arco Information NV – a document management software and service provider.

Awingu is a Belgian software scale-up. Its technology allows businesses to easily and securely provide remote access old or new software, full desktops and file servers via the browser. Users such as medical and administrative staff can work from any device, from anywhere while keeping IT security and compliance standards at the highest level.

Walter Van Uytven (not related to Marc), CEO at Awingu: “Healthcare is an important market for Awingu today. We enable ‘secure ‘work-from-home’ and ‘secure contractor access’ for organizations such as for example NHS Worcestershire (UK), Hospital Del Mar (ES), AOU Sassari (IT) or Ziekenhuis Zuid-Oost Limburg (BE). Being a very dynamic and quickly evolving industry, we believe Marc is the right person to support Awingu’s growth in the industry.”

“I’m convinced Awingu can be a strong asset in the digital transformation and healthcare strategy at many organizations. Awingu can help organizations with the challenges they face today; I’m thinking of eco-system building in order to provide network-based connected, integrated and remote care and to some extend work-from-home. In this context, safeguarding cybersecurity and protecting against ransomware attacks, are at most crucial. Awingu’s mix of simplicity, IT security on the one hand, and the ability to significantly reduce IT operating costs on the other hand make Awingu really compelling.” Adds Marc Van Uytven.
