I love to talk to an audience and make everybody enthusiastic about the actual subject.
I have worked for 20 years as an orthopaedic surgeon. In 1992 I defended my PhD thesis about air-cleaning systems for operating theatres. In 1996 a new career started in medical informatics, regarding the development of EPR (electronic patient records) for hospital care. In 1998 I became the head of the informatics department of a hospital group consisting of 5 units, with 5000 employees and 2500 PC:s in an internal network.
