The Netherlands Federation of University Medical Centres has started a series of healthcare improvement programs in the Netherlands. Terralemon is involved in design of the programs e-Health, Doen of Laten, Registratie aan de bron and Data4lifesciences.

All these programs, funded by the Citrienfonds, are committed to improve healthcare infrastructure for the coming years in the Netherlands. Aspects like the usage of new media in e-Health, the (in)effectiveness of treatments and sharing data in healthcare. Terralemon created online and motion for the specific programs.


The digitization of healthcare is becoming increasingly important. It enables the patient to better manage his health and disease by means of a digital healthcare environment in which all the data have been gathered.

This gives the patient and surrounding friends and family and all healthcare professionals access to the right information and online services.

Doen of Laten

This program focuses on reducing treatments that has no added value or even may be harmful to the patient.

Reducing these unnecessary proceedings helps doctors to make better choices for most effective operation or therapy. But it can also mean to not decide to carry out a certain operation because the clear added value is missing.

Registratie aan de bron

This program revolves around unambiguous and one-time capture of care information.

This is done by collecting the healthcare information building blocks so that information can be used multiple times in direct patient care and also for quality purposes, operations and scientific research.


Data4lifesciences working on the realization of an integrated research data infrastructure that makes it easier to deal with scientific data.

The structure is intended to relieve researchers and to make optimum use of the many opportunities that IT technology can provide the research. The infrastructure that delivers Data4lifesciences includes technical facilities, but also a catalog of samples in a biobank, a standard method in which data from an EHR is made available, privacy policies, and guidelines for researchers on how to optimal deal with data.
