- The Covid-19 outbreak has served to stress the need for digital transformation. There is a heightened need for effective telemedicine solutions, as well as a reliable and safe way of exchanging patient information, among others.
- The Dutch are the international front-runners in e-Health. Public-private collaborations and investments are the driving force behind a multitude of new ideas and right now, countless new e-Health applications are in the making.
- Texas, on the other side, is home to most healthcare professionals, health clinics, and the world’s largest medical center (Texas Medical Center/TMC), which houses the world’s largest children’s hospital (Texas Children’s Hospital) and world’s largest cancer hospital (MD Anderson Cancer Center).
- The Netherlands has been on the forefront of the digital healthcare revolution, and during the Covid-19 outbreak we see that many of the digital health companies find ways to have their innovative solutions implemented quicker and that exchange of data and information between healthcare stakeholders as well as telemonitoring and teleconsulting has become more dynamic.
This webinar was created to discuss the state of e-health in The Netherlands and Texas, and how we can learn from each other and cooperate in new solutions.
