Future of health

Transforming (digitally) within complex and changing legal frameworks

The Healthcare & Life Sciences sector is complicated. There are many laws and regulations governing healthcare innovations and it is becoming increasingly difficult to attract staff and capital. In addition, the Dutch government is increasingly introducing new regulations to control costs and prevent the incorrect use of (diminishing) public resources. We can perpetuate healthcare with the help of digital solutions. A healthcare organisation without technology is almost unimaginable when one thinks about healthcare of the future. How can you (digitally) transform within complex and changing legal frameworks?

Innovating together in the health ecosystem of the future

The Dutch health ecosystem is about to embark on a digital transformation. To make the transformation to appropriate - and digital - care, providers, new entrants from the Life Sciences sector (medical technology, biotechnology, and pharma) and financiers (health insurers and private equity) will have to work together. The health ecosystem of the future is based on (regional) cooperation. New (digital) healthcare initiatives are being developed based on this collaboration that contribute to healthcare innovation at various levels.

  1. Healthcare consumer: higher quality of life. From care to health.

  2. Employees: more job satisfaction. From care to attention. 

  3. Organisation: curb costs and a more productive workforce with improved quality of care. Quality as medicine.
