Editorial Board

ICT&health’s aim is to help and support care so that scaling up innovative technology is possible. This is necessary because the world population still is growing. However, care must be affordable and can be improved. ICT&health seeks and highlights relevant developments and innovations, shares knowledge and facilitates collaborations. This helps the healthcare industry in their ongoing development. Experts like Tom Lawry, Daniel Kraft, Lucien Engelen and others, support the mission of ICT&health and want to make a social and qualitative contribution as a member of the editorial board.

The Editorial Board is therefore crucial in the strategy of ICT&health. All content, both online and offline, is compiled in collaboration with international specialists of our Editorial Board – Medical specialists, Doctors, physicians, scientists, patients, government officials and innovation leaders.

Together with our Editorial Board ICT&health is seeking to understand the true impact and benefits that technology and other innovations bring the health sector. How can governments keep healthcare affordable with an aging population? What kind of innovations are heading our way and how can they be put to use in the best possible way? What are the legal and privacy boundaries and how do we take care of the financial aspects? Just some of the questions health professionals and managers need answered.
