Healthcare in the digital age
As healthcare systems and companies alike seek to engage with digital technology to improve patient outcomes, someone with a clear view of the challenges faced by both is Prof Jan Kimpen. He’s served as chief medical officer for Royal Philips since January 2016, and before that had a wide-ranging medical and academic career that included six years leading Utrecht’s University Medical Center (UMC), and it was also at UMC that he spent a decade as a paediatrician. One of the largest academic healthcare organisations in the Netherlands, in 2014 employing some 11,000 people, UMC focuses on treating brain, infective and immunological conditions, regenerative medicine, children’s health, cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
