Informative economic health mission to Boston
From 16 to 19 July Frenetti joined a trade mission to Boston, organised by The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and the Task Force Health Care. This trade mission was also joined by Prime Minister Mark Rutte, Minister of Health, Welfare & Sport, Bruno Bruins and water envoy Henk Ovink. The trade mission was led by Hans de Boer, chairman of the Dutch employers’ confederation VNO-NCW.
Frenetti participated in the LSH digital care and e-health program, which was put together for around 43 organizations that attended the trade mission from this sector.
Brief summary of this trade mission
It was an interesting and full program in which healthcare was viewed from different angles. Presentations were given about state-of-the-art developments and followed by interactions and discussions.
During this mission there were various presentations amongst others about data and the integration and correlation thereof. Data is needed to generate value for patient care. Remarkable was that when it comes to extracting added value from data and linking data, the nursing professional group does not seem to be represented in this multidisciplinary collaboration, while the influence of this professional group on healthcare is considerable. It would add value if they also think along and contribute to the issues of “which data to connect” and to apply machine learning and AI where possible, desirable and validated. With the aim of creating value for nursing practice and patient care in order to raise the quality of care to a higher level.
