Symposium Zicht op Zorg 2015
Digitalisation, empowerment & outcome 2015
2015 was declared by the Dutch Minister of Health to be the year of transparency and was also the 12.5-year anniversary of the DREAM foundation. To celebrate this anniversary and the recent initiation of several new registries, DREAM organized a symposium (Zicht op Zorg) about the quality and efficiency of care for several prevalent chronic conditions. Both care-related, scientific and practical issues were addressed.
The symposium featured a challenging program with new perspectives on quality of health care. The latest developments and current topics from daily clinical practice were discussed. Many speakers shared their experiences with registering quality indicators to ensure and improve quality of care. The necessity of collaboration was a recurrent theme. During the symposium the transparency report was handed to Dutch Patient and Consumer Federation (NPCF) and two patients.
We look back on a successful and inspiring symposium and thank all speakers and participants for their contributions.
