Notable quotes

“Everybody now has a clear understanding that we must share the data so that we can have better healthcare and prevention for a patient or a population.” – Hans Buitendijk

“The goal is to share the data consistently in the best way possible, but that requires standards, knowledge, regulations, networks and other places where we can do it.” – Hans Buitendijk

“When we were trying to solve interoperability in the past, we said the glass is half full. Now, we’re further ahead and the glass is still half full because the glass is bigger. We’re constantly learning and figuring things out.” – Hans Buitendijk
