In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Ed de Kluiver

Kluiver, physician and former chairman of the board of the Isala heart center, talks about a strange paradox in healthcare. Much more is possible than we implement. What obstacles are in the way here? How can you develop major innovations and bring them to the world? Ed de Kluiver will explain why he thinks it is necessary to critically examine which treatments should take place in the hospital and which can be implemented in the patient’s living environment.

Lúcia Fonseca

biomedical engineer
What is the essence of innovating for health technologies? In what is it unique to other technical domains? Lúcia Fonseca guides us through the innovation process and how a human-centric approach is key in delivering solutions that matter and help save patient lives. Lucia is a biomedical engineer who co-creates with surgeons, scientists and designers on the future of minimal invasive interventions, such as lung cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Martijn van Grieken

co-founder startup
The doctors’ toolset can be expanded considerably with innovations. An interesting new direction is AI, which has the potential to become a Swiss army knife of healthcare. But how do you translate this mountain of data into insights that a doctor can work with immediately? Martijn van Greeks is co-founder of a start-up specialized in AI (Gimix). He shows how he is working with healthcare providers to make these tools available.
