Technology as the enabler of healthcare transformation: the starting point of Healthcare Enablers.


Healthcare Enablers is an initiative from strategy- and innovation consultancy firm BeBright and the National eHealth Living Lab. Since 2017, Health Enablers provides an annual publication with an overview of the most important technological development regarding healthcare in the Netherlands and abroad. For inspiration, but also to reap the benefits from new technological opportunities together and work on a sustainable healthcare system where quality and efficiency go hand in hand. Healthcare Enablers provides an (international) point of view for digital healthcare innovation and transformation.

This platform combines insights from all Healthcare Enablers publications, presents domestic and foreign technological healthcare innovations in one database and we share tips and tricks to increase innovation possibilities for your organization. Simultaneously, we work on a (virtual) ecosystem to increase healthcare innovation and transformation. An ecosystem where international best-practices in the field of innovation in Life Sciences & Health ‘come together’ and are exchanged. The goal is to share and learn from high quality knowledge and insights, both from success stories as from (brilliant) failures. In this way we can increase the innovation- and learning capacity of healthcare and accelerate and perpetuate healthcare transformation.

The fifth edition of Healthcare Enablers was published on the 26th of November 2021.

“Healthcare Enablers is a wonderful initiative that has provided a structured overview of the wide range of new healthcare technologies for many years. Not only does it provide an overview of healthcare technology, but also shows how we can work together to make sure that healthcare technology becomes an essential part of our healthcare system.”

“The primary hazard of technology shows when focus is placed on the technology, instead of the problems to be solved and the value to be delivered. Healthcare Enablers supports the build up of a new ecosystem in which technology can be used for a seamless, frictionless care and health, adding value to evolving workflows. ”
