His new book “Augmented Health(care)™: The end of the beginning”, as he thinks that we’re at the end of the beginning of an era of creating awareness, pilots, proof of concepts etc in the digital transformation of health(care).
He combined the worlds of Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre and Singularity University in Silicon Valley & the Netherlands in an always challenging modus operandi, sometimes provocative but always techno-realistic and with passion. Constantly at the edge. One of his famous quotes is “the world will not switch into PAUSE while we are debating the possible challenges and opportunities”, but it will still keep turning around and around aiming on the assumption change will slow down.

The objective is to keep Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre and its network at the forefront of innovation and to have a soft landing in the future, meanwhile creating a sustainable global health(care) for all. Creating breakthrough programs, foresight, and products if industry lacks progression itself.
This crossroad brings new opportunities but also challenges that go way beyond technology and processes. Next to his appointment at Radboud University Medical Center and Singularity University he also guides other institution, companies and governments in this challenging transformation via his company Transform.health.
A decade of tangible experience in health(care) innovation, his incredible global network combined with his state-of-the-art graphics, humor, and thought-provoking vision will support the needed change in your organization.
