“Medicine is on the brink of a revolution and has a lot of catching up to do to meet consumer expectations. Driven by smart algorithms, healthcare can be tailored precisely to individual patients linked 24/7 to a complex health ecosystem. But how do you optimize the value of investments? And how do you make care providers enthusiastic about this transition? That’s what we help clients with.”
How Erik is building a better working world
“We’re doing this so we can all age healthily and affordably. There’s still a vast amount to discover and improve, which keeps our intellectual and cooperation skills primed. We - the client and our team - join forces to achieve things no-one had thought possible. I’m proud, for example, of the largest EDP implementation in the Netherlands, where we combined ambitious planning with a range of innovations. And did so successfully.”
