Solutions to Dutch Health Challenges Discussed in Round Table Sessions at HIMSS23

Dutch roundtable sessions

The HIMSS Dutch Community organized a round table session at the 2023 HIMSS Global Health Conference and Exhibition in Chicago to discuss important topics related to the recent request to the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport to emphasize greater access to data needed for better healthcare delivery.  

The Dutch delegation hosted nine round table discussions, each led by a practitioner ambassador with expertise on the chosen topics. The nine round tables focused on key elements of Dutch health challenges including the labor market, artificial intelligence, network collaboration and innovation. Over 150 experts participated in the organized dialogues, representing different disciplines of the healthcare industry such as IT suppliers, policy makers and healthcare providers.   

Each round table’s interactive format provided an opportunity for participants to share different perspectives, answer questions and gain a better understanding of each approached subject. Every round table also formally indicated what next steps should be taken to achieve progress in each respective subject.  

After the success of the round table sessions at HIMSS23, the HIMSS Dutch Community hopes to organize an international version of the round table sessions with other HIMSS communities in the future.  

The HIMSS23 Chicago: Dutch Community Round Table Sessions report includes an in-depth summary of each discussion and results from the nine themed round tables.
