Hans van den Brink is responsible for the development of the strategic plan for Swedish healthcare organisation Västra Götaland. Over the last 10 years he has held a variety of management positions all with the responsibility for the patient administrative systems as well the IT systems with the core EHR functionality. Hans’ recent focus has been on the procurement of the new organisational wide EHR, which will be implemented in 2022-2023. Parallel to his work here, Hans has published two digitalisation strategies supporting healthcare. The first strategy has the external perspective, how to interact with citizens and patients. The second has a data perspective: how to translate data to knowledge to improve healthcare and life quality. Hans is also publishing a 3rd strategic insight later this year with the internal perspective: how to create a sustainable and appropriate digital work environment for employees.
