Nicole van Eldik

Maastricht University Medical Centre

Nicole van Eldik (38) is a pediatrician specialized in social paediatrics and works both within the s-GGZ and the MUMC +. She is also eHealth program manager, setting out the strategy for digital care within the MUMC +. She does this from the healthcare innovation lab, where there is plenty of room to develop innovations from idea to prototype, but also work is being done on the larger-scale implementation of digital innovations within the hospital. The objective is participatory healthcare; digital tools help the patient and care givers to be involved in the treatment procedure and medical doctors an take a role as a coach rather than a more paternalistic role. Nicole will talk about the latest innovations in digital health and what the consequences for pediatric healthcare will be. The future is now.. let’s be prepared.
