‘Data availability in healthcare may not lead to exclusion’
Inclusion is crucial for a digitally sustainable healthcare sector. Everyone should be able to manage their own medical record and have control over their data. The availability of data may not lead to exclusion. Those are the key findings from a survey on digitalisation in the Dutch healthcare sector conducted by De Nieuwe Wereld and consultancy firm INNOPAY. In a special broadcast on De Nieuwe Wereld’s YouTube channel, journalist and philosopher Ad Verbrugge discusses this topic with a number of experts.
In the broadcast, Verbrugge talks to Jeroen Tas (Strategic Business Development at Philips and former Chief Innovation & Strategy Officer) and Bert-Arjen Millenaar (founder and CEO of NLC). The issues they discuss include how digitalisation can support the transformation of healthcare systems in the Netherlands and elsewhere, how the sharing of patients’ medical records can be made more inclusive, and the role of parties such as hospitals, governments, insurers, medical technology suppliers and the industry?
This episode on digital sustainability in the healthcare sector is part of a series organised by De Nieuwe Wereld and INNOPAY on the topic of digital sustainability.
