His lectures are practical, stimulating, forward-looking, teasing, provoking, and spiced with a bit of humor and self-mockery.

Popular Talks by Lucien Engelen

How healthcare is ‘losing’ society a bit

Healthcare in all its facets should be a reflection of what is happening in society, but then translated, let’s say adapted, with a few unique characteristics that are different for healthcare.

He talks about both the user interface UI, -the way we offer care-, and the user experience UX, the way the users experience the care, not the quality, but the total steps to be taken to make the process go through ‘Losing’ because society is increasingly digitizing: payment transactions, groceries, holidays, pension and insurance overviews, up to video visits from distant or distant relatives, but healthcare is lacking speed, intrinsic motivation and a plan #howto. This keynote is for both providers to help with the #howto and suppliers, policy makers how best to support.

From healthcare to health: what your role could be in the future of healthcare

With the aging population, increasing burnout complaints of healthcare workers, a shortage of skilled personnel, and rising costs, healthcare is heading for an implosion. This development has already started before the COVID-19 pandemic and has only intensified since then.

Healthcare is cracking at the seams, and the consequences of the pandemic are now affecting the entire economy. Lucien sees the solution in : health. In this lecture, he explains how other organizations and companies can take a role in this significant challenge and why he sees the answer in a cross-industry approach, where many other branches in the lives of people will step in, like financials, supermarkets, telco’s etc.
