EY teams are helping organisations across the entire health spectrum, with harnessing the transformative power of new technology and data. This requires ecosystems to be built around the needs of the individual supported by technical standards, open data models and empowered by governance systems that deliver trust.
Erik is a strong believer on the fact that working with the right combination of standards is pivotal to unleash the power of health data.
I am an experienced clinician and health informatician.
For the past 25 years, my focus has always been on how a clinical informatician can bridge between non-technical clinicians and software engineers – ensuring that the clinical needs and requirements are accurately understood by technicians and implementers. My motivation has been to use technology as a tool to make a greater impact on health outcomes than I could from clinical practice alone.
While my recent role has been focused largely on openEHR, the associated skills and experience that I have gained are transportable to many aspects of eHealth and business:
- a clinician informatician for more than 20 years;
- a proven track record in the design and clinical verification of atomic health data and data set specifications;
- a deep understanding of clinical knowledge governance; and
- practical experience in clinician and domain expert engagement.
