CO-AUTHORING A BOOK, WHAT A JOURNEY

So much enjoyed participating in the co-creation of a book on integrated care, a model that almost everyone advocates as the way forward, but where the gap between word and deed turns out to be very unruly. In this book, 25 experts from all corners of healthcare and wellbeing look at what is already possible and beyond, from their own day-to-day trenches, expertise and experience.

My privilege was to write a chapter elaborating on the real promise of digitisation within the context of integrated care. Spoiler: it’s all about the unlocking of health data, both for primary use (improving care efficiency and outcomes) and secondary use (empowering research). Happy to highlight the Remote Clinical Monitoring Center as an example project, and lead use case for the versatile health data integration platform medEmotion.

Feeling very grateful overall. For the opportunity to contribute to a multi-perspective, actionable framework for integrated care. For all people in my professional vicinity who help shape and stimulate my thinking and doing. Hope many of you will buy and read it, proceeds will go to a topically aligned charity.
