How Erik is building a better working world
“Health care is on the brink of a revolution and has a lot of catching up to do to meet consumer expectations. Driven by smart algorithms fueled by large datasets, health care can be tailored precisely to meet individual patients’ needs and expectations.
But how can people, environments and systems be better connected? How can sustainable data foundations be created? How can investment value be optimized? How can enthusiasm be generated for these transitions? That’s what I help clients with.
There’s a vast amount to discover and improve, which keeps my intellectual and collaborative skills primed. I enjoy working with clients to achieve things that may have been thought impossible. I’m proud, for example, of the largest EMR implementation in the Netherlands, where ambitious planning and a range of innovations combined successfully.”
