Director, Interoperability Strategy
For more than 35 years I have been involved in the development of HIT solutions, client consulting on strategic IT planning, health care application development and implementations, large scale business process re-engineering and systems integration, and complex project management, bridging the gap between business process optimization and IT support.
I am originally from The Netherlands and am a graduate of the Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands and have a Masters of Science in Management Science and Industrial Engineering.
As Director of Interoperability Strategy at Cerner, I’m primarily focused on establishing and propagating industry standards to enable interoperability across the diverse systems prevalent in health IT. I represent Cerner in various industry organizations/initiatives to advance interoperability such as HL7, Argonaut, Da Vinci, EHRA, CommonWell Health Alliance, Carequality, and The Sequoia Project to increase adoption of standards-based interoperability.
