The world around us is changing rapidly and so is health care. People are growing older and are developing more chronic conditions. The development and availability of knowledge and technology is increasing rapidly, as is the development of diagnostic tools and treatment options. This leads to increasingly specialized care and specialized health professionals. The affordability and thus accessibility of care are under pressure as a result of these changes.
Good health, the foundation of a high quality of life, is important to everyone. More than ever, the aim is to prevent disease. And when care becomes necessary, we demand the very best, preferably close to home. When it comes to care, patients increasingly expect to play a role as a partner, making decisions in consultation with their doctor.
