“Go for it! But do it together.”

I am committed to making technology in healthcare accessible by letting care providers see and experience the possibilities of technology and helping them to use it to improve the quality of life for their clients.

Senior Researcher

From eHealth to Health: Every day, healthcare professionals are committed to providing the best possible support to their clients.

Yet technological developments have made our lives so much easier and there are many opportunities to improve the lives of people receiving care or to enlarge their world.
