I've always been interested in computing and during my traineeship as a medical doctor, I built a small patient database for the hospital I worked for. This became more succefull than anticipated and I had to choose between Medicine and IT. I chose Cardiology. However, the oppertunities created by digital transformation have opend up the possibility to have a active role in both worlds. As of 2013 I've been the CMIO of SJG Weert and in 2017 I joined the board of the CMIO netwerk Netherlands.
