Why do I find technical innovation in health care important?
The Dutch health care awaits the great challenge that despite an aging population and growing healthcare consumption, it has to maintain quality, accessibility and affordability of health care. That can only happen if we use technology for both incremental innovation (making the existing care more effective) and for radical innovation (truly innovate and transform care by creating new business models). Technical innovation in the form of eg medical technology, ICT and E-health-like solutions form a great foundation for change.

Give an example of such an innovation.
Confrérie Clinique ( is an example of a startup that uses new technology to prevent both the wasting of medicines as well as strengthens the compliance with medication of patients. They do this by using a new technology with direct effect on the quality and the efficiency of care.
