BG.legal works with healthcare providers and suppliers to respond to the challenges the sector faces. Challenges created by cuts, limited budgets and decentralization. Healthcare institutions must always find a balance between a human approach and personal attention on the one hand and efficient business management on the other, whilst serving the interests of multiple stakeholders.
Not just the interests of clients[councils], but also of works councils, health insurers, healthcare offices (‘zorgkantoren’) and supervisors such as the Dutch Healthcare Authority [Nza], Health and Youth Care Inspectorate[IGJ], the Authority for Consumers & Markets [ACM] and the Dutch Data Protection Authority. A complex playing field in which many healthcare institutions also must comply with the Governance Code Zorg 2017.
Challenges are also posed by the introduction of new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and [co-]robotics. These innovations create new opportunities whilst at the same time posing new legal challenges.
