CEO, Forcare
Involved with IHE since 1998

I started using IHE right from the start in 1998, supporting the first profiles developed for Radiology. In 2006, I became vendor-chair for IHE Netherlands (until 2010), building a successful IHE Deployment Committee. In parallel, I extended my engagement in IHE Europe and the IHE International Board where I am presently active.

IHE has become a great platform for providing practical solutions to real problems in healthcare. The IHE community is a diverse gathering of people from all backgrounds, nations and professions, making it a great place to work jointly towards our common goal: better healthcare through better interoperability. As a vendor, being part of this community helps you build better solutions, extends your network and is a means to contribute in a pre-competitive spirit.
