When it comes to medical care, Lucien Engelen is putting the patient in the lead. As the first Dutch Health 2.0 Ambassador, the technologist and innovator has used his influence to revolutionize patient care through digital technologies and thought shifts in the healthcare world.

Lucien is Head of the regional emergency healthcare network at the Radbound University Nijmegen Medical Center and founding Director of the Radboud REshape Center, which creates breakthrough programs, foresights, and products aimed to empower patients and take weight off skilled professional shortages and tightening budgets. The center follows trends, creates and tests healthcare innovations, and either implements them or classifies them as “not implementable” (for the moment).

Lucien has been named one of the initial 150 world thought leaders by LinkedIn for his forward thinking approaches. As of 2014 over 500,000 users followed his blog.

Full Profile

Lucien Engelen is a technologist and innovator who is working to put patients into the healthcare team.

The healthcare industry faces more challenges than ever before: shortage of skilled personnel, a rising demand for healthcare services, and healthcare budgets that are under significant pressure. At the same time, the influence of exponential growth in technology and the changing attitude of patients result in changing patient care models.

Lucien Engelen (1962) is the initiator and director of the Radboud REshape & Innovation Centre at the Radboud University Medical Centre (RUNMC). The Innovation Center studies technology trends and oversees their practical implementation in patient care. Lucien is also head of the Regional Acute Healthcare Network and advisor of the Executive Board of RUNMC. In 2011 he initiated the Radboud REshape Academy, offering Masterclasses on the current changes in patient care.

Lucien is originator of “The Future of Health” TEDxMaastricht, that was first organized in 2011 and faculty of the Singularity University/FutureMed track (founded by Google, NASA and Autodesk) in Silicon Valley. He is Mentor Health at The Founder Institute Amsterdam and together with the Mayo Clinic, he started a Global Social Media Network for Healthcare. With Roni Zeiger (Google) he founded MyHealthStory.me.

Central to his thinking, doing, and inspiration is what he calls Participatory Healthcare. 
”Their health is taken away from them, their data is being kept away from them, and we make choices for them. Patients want to be involved in their own diseases again.”

Lucien Engelen-Crowdsource your health


Visionary Lucien Engelen demonstrates technological innovations that can save lives by getting more and more people involved. He points to the underuse of digital technologies in regard to medicine, pointing out that people use aps to find the nearest ATM everyday, so why not do the same for emergency healthcare resources?

Demonstrating aps he and his team have created through crowd-sourcing to find the nearest AED or a WIFI scale that sends data to doctors and friends through Google Health and Twitter. Joking that people sometimes tweet him that he needs to eat a light lunch that day, Lucien remarks, “But that’s the nicest thing that could happen, since this is peer pressure. Peer pressure used to help patients…It also could be used to get people from out of their chairs and try to work together in some kind of gaming activity to get more control of their health.”
