The CREDITAS Group continues to invest in education
The CREDITAS Group has acquired a majority in the US company called Dialysis Education Services (DES) – which focuses on the training and certification of hemodialysis technicians. In this way, it contributes to the care of patients with chronic kidney disease. As part of its training activities, DES uses applications from Lifeliqe, which is part of the CREDITAS Group portfolio and focuses on virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) training, including certification courses in healthcare.
“CREDITAS Group is primarily focused on the growth and development of its core sectors – financial services, energy and development. At the same time, we are pleased to be able to support educational start-ups and companies with great potential. As the labour market and professions change, certification courses like this will be increasingly in demand,” says CREDITAS CEO Jiří Hrouda.
DES is based in California. It was founded in 2009 and has extensive experience in the education of dialysis specialists. More than 2,000 healthcare professionals have completed the certified programs provided by the Company and are putting their knowledge into practice to improve the quality of care and health of patients with kidney diseases. “This investment has a great synergistic effect. DES is expecting strong growth across the USA. That is why the Company needs to use modern educational tools, which are supplied by Lifeliqe. Compared to traditional education, VR and AR technology enables more effective education at a lower cost and in less time,” says Lifeliqe CEO Matouš Tlapák.
Lifeliqe is currently offering virtual reality courses for dialysis technicians as part of the SANDI programme in the American state of Nevada. At the same time, the start-up has entered into a partnership in China, preparing its own holoverse laboratories for teaching science in schools.
