Why Appical in Healthcare?

In the healthcare sector, work environments are highly varied. With Appical you can start by creating a customary onboarding program that provides basic knowledge and general information and then dive deeper! Adding function- or department-oriented content, which will be available to specific position holders or specific locations enables you to guarantee every employee is informed quickly and efficiently!

What does the employee journey look like?

From the first moment of contact, signing the contract, the onboarding period until the termination of employment. With Appical you create impact at every moment.


Pre-boarding runs from the moment a new employee signs their contract until the first working day.


Onboarding takes place from the new hire’s first working day until they are fully integrated.


Offboarding starts when the employee indicates they want to leave the organization and ends on the employee’s last working day.

The best features for Healthcare

Make complex information easily understood through a game or a video

Complex information and protocols present a challenge for onboarding. You want to make this kind of information not just accessible to your employee, but also engaging. With Appical you can present all information in the shape of a game or a video. Multimedia interaction and a fun learning process ensure a much better knowledge transfer!

The workplace from your smartphone

Not all departments are accessible to a new employee in the Healthcare work environment. Moreover, giving each new employee a comprehensive tour is impractical and time-consuming. Augmented reality offers a useful alternative! Give the new employee a look into all departments via their mobile device  – even from their own home!

Meet your colleagues
