The digital GIZ (DIGIZ), the digitalization of a proven method for estimating care needs of parents and children, is a new ZONMw project in which TNO, GGD Hollands Midden, JGZ Zuid-Holland West, Leids Universitair Medisch Centrum, NCJ and Eaglescience are participating.

Our goal is to develop a user-friendly tool for parents, children and care professionals that facilitates the construction of a structured overview of challenges faced and strengths experience. The DIGIZ is easily accessible via tablet or laptop, devices daily used by children, youngsters and parents.. It also encourages to determine own action plans based on both care needs and strengths.

“DIGIZ is easily accessible via tablet or laptop, it connects better with the perceptions of children and parents.”

Professionals just need to bring their laptop or tablet. Using the DIGIZ facilitates a more structured conversation with recognizable output that stimulates the user to act and improve their situation.
