Monika is passionate about shaping Future Health. With the digital transformation of healthcare well underway, future healthcare will be data-driven and evidence-based, providing tailored care to individual needs and focusing more on prevention. The green transformation of healthcare is only just gaining notice, yet it will challenge and change healthcare at least as much. Monika is convinced that, ultimately, digitalization of healthcare will also be a democratization of healthcare, as patients are increasingly empowered, access barriers can be lowered and healthcare becomes available everywhere.
