Better data exchange in the healthcare domain | National frameworks and local initiatives

November 7, 2023

Bianca Rouwenhorst, Director of Information Policy and CIO at the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS) would like to talk to you about how we can really take steps together in the exchange of data. An approach in which the focus is not on the sector, but on the (future) patient. Bringing policy and implementation together is essential in this area. Therefore, during this Vision Dinner, much attention is paid to dialogue and you, as a peer within the healthcare domain, are very welcome to participate and share your own experience and vision.

  • Small scaled peer session
  • Open dialogue by means of the Chatham House Rule

A digital transition in the healthcare domain is necessary to get the right information at the right time and at the right place. In this way, citizens receive the right care and healthcare providers can provide the right care. At the regional level, there are already several good initiatives to improve data exchange and these have led to good results.
