Ministry of Health:
waste in long-term care

In August 2013 I went back home to the Netherlands and the ministry. I started working in the long-term care department as project leader to address waste in long-term care. Health care costs were exploding and we felt the need to contain the costs. Moreover people complained that there was much waste in health care. Medicines were not reused, nurses were mainly busy with registrations and food in institutions was thrown away.

In this article in Eurohealth a summary of the project is given (together with chief economist Patrick Jeurissen).

The project stopped in 2016 with a closing seminar “100% care”.
