Since 1 October 2010, I am working for the Antwerp Hospital Network (Dutch: Ziekenhuis Netwerk Antwerpen-ZNA) at the Health Policy Management Support Department (Director Dr. Christina Vandewalle) as physician-manager for medical coding, part of our hospital discharge dataset (HDDS), which is being used to calculate and allocate 'B2 - the budget for clinical costs' of the "Budget of Financial Means" or BFM (based on ICD-10-BE, APR-DRGs, Minimal Clinical Data - MCD, MG-MZG). In addition I work on clinical documentation improvement (CDI), JCI accreditation, and introducing SNOMED CT (clinical ontology and semantic interoperability) in order to improve our operational efficiency and patient safety.

The total budget of an acute hospital in Belgium is based for about 40 % on fee-for-service, for almost an equal part on prospective financing (the "Budget of Financial Means" or BFM) and for the remaining part on pharmaceutical products and various income. The Belgian budget of financial means for hospitals (BFM) is to a large extent based on the hospital discharge dataset (HDDS). It is a closed-end budget determined at the national level and allocated to individual hospitals consisting of three major components (A, B, C). Part A of the BFM covers capital and investment costs, while part B covers operational costs and part C covers some corrections (positive or negative) of budgets for past financial years. Parts A, B and C each consists of subparts of which B1 (common operational costs; 20.34% of total BFM) and B2 (clinical costs; 38.39% of total BFM) are the largest parts. The hospital discharge dataset (HDDS) is being used to calculate and allocate 'B2 - the budget for clinical costs' of the BFM, which covers clinical services of nursing staff and medical products, except endoscopic materials and materials for viscerosynthesis (intestinal tissue fixation by staplers).

The Antwerp Hospital Network (ZNA) is a leading healthcare provider in Belgium offering affordable and high-quality healthcare. ZNA was established in 2004 as an independent body to manage former public hospitals in the city of Antwerp. The Antwerp Hospital Network (ZNA) provides expert medical care in all disciplines in both general and specialist hospitals. ZNA comprises three general hospitals ( ZNA Jan Palfijn, ZNA Middelheim, ZNA Stuivenberg and ZNA Sint-Erasmus - STER), eight day centres and six specialist care centres.

B-1654 Huizingen
Belgium

From 2 September 2008 until 30 September 2010, I was working for RealDolmen (merger of Real Software and Dolmen), as Business Consultant.
I worked on process and technology improvement projects, mainly in healthcare (eHealth), translational medicine and Life Sciences, assisted customers to improve their processes and technology and worked together with them on their change process so they achieved better operational results. We used an Enterprise Architecture (EA) approach in complex business (e.g.: mergers and acquisitions) and technology projects (applications, infrastructure) to (re-)align organizational goals, business processes and technology from top to bottom and from their current "AS IS" state to their new and optimized "TO BE " state.

RealDolmen develops systems for healthcare, such as medication management in hospitals (e.g. Izoproc/Infomedic), occupational healthcare (e.g. Ergomed/E.O.M.), knowledge sharing and knowledge management, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and systems for mobile Electronic Nursing Files. Together with the team of ORIAM in France, RealDolmen develops solutions for Clinical Trial Management Systems (CTMS), Adverse Event Reporting Systems (Pharmacovigilance), and Biobanking (Biorepositories).

Many thanks to my former colleague, Mario Van Damme (1973-2010), for teaching me all about Enterprise Architectures.

Prins Boudewijnlaan 26
B-2550 Kontich
Belgium

From 7 November 2005 until 1 September 2008, I was working for Real Software, first as Senior Consultant and from June 2006 until August 2008 also as Quality Officer. Our company became CMMI ML2 certified in 2006, for which I established the PPQA compliant Quality Office (CMMI Maturity Level 2 compliant QA process implementation).
I did process and technology improvement projects, also in healthcare and Life Sciences, thereby assisting our customers to improve their processes and technology and worked together with them on their change process so they achieved better operational results.
As part of our CMMI certification, I created the QA Office at CMMI ML2 for Real Software and as a Quality Officer worked on internal process improvement (CMMI ML2-3, PMI PMBOK) and implemented new processes in order to improve the performance and quality of our projects and the service towards our customers (improving project control during the entire project Life Cycle). As a QA Officer, I audited and coached our project teams to improve our project team performance and increase customer satisfaction. Therefore I also trained our colleagues on process management principles and project management skills (trained more than 300 people on all CMMI ML 2 process areas).

For our service management, I managed the implementation of the corporate helpdesk so we could improve our customer services. I managed the customer relations for our Ergomed and Ergomed Online Mobile (EOM) software (occupational medicine). Together with our colleagues of ORIAM in France, Real Software worked on solutions for Clinical Trial Management Systems (CTMS), Adverse Event Reporting Systems (Pharmacovigilance), and Biobanking (Biorepositories).
We developed our Enterprise Architecture (EA) assessment approach to align organizational goals, business processes and technology in complex business and technology projects (mergers and acquisitions, fast growing companies). Thereby creating a complete program to migrate an organisation from "AS IS" to "TO BE ".

Cipalstraat 3
B-2440 Geel
Belgium

From 2 July 2001 until 20 May 2005 I worked for MAIA SCIENTIFIC (now DIGILAB) as Director Imaging Technology and IT.

Management of software development for the MIAS automated microscopy imaging and HCS technology platform. Project management for development of an HCS software framework based on the MIAS-2 platform (eaZYX). Assay development and automation for cell-based assays, histology and model organisms, automated High Content Screening (HCS) systems and advanced multi-mode image processing software based on scale-space and the spatial color model.

Janssen Pharmaceutica

Turnhoutseweg 30
B-2340 Beerse
Belgium

From 31 Dec. 1996 until 30 June 2001, I worked as Senior Scientist Biomedical Imaging at the Biological Imaging Laboratory team of the Life Science Department (project management, HCS development). I worked on assay development and automation for cell-based assays, histology and model organisms.

We worked on fully automated High Content Screening (HCS) and image analysis systems for drug discovery, preclinical and early clinical development. In my role I contributed to several research programs in CNS, oncology, cardiology and other disease areas. My main responsibility within the team was to develop imaging technology for research projects which required automated quantification of image data: (tissue) morphology, brightfield screening, High Content Screening (HCS), C. elegans projects and MRI for small lab animals. Our imaging team developed fully automated solutions (plate handling, cell incubators, automated illumination, cardiac cell stimulators, ... ) for both brightfield as well as fluorescence imaging. Part of this also involved time-lapse and real-time microscopy for dynamic in-vivo studies (e.g. Ca2+ ratio imaging). Our work was done in close collaboration with several research groups from different departments in the company. I was also involved in an initiative to start with MRI imaging of transgenic disease models.

During this period I also started a small company (DeNeMa), together with a friend, specialised in Linux systems for SME businesses. It was interesting to do and I learned a lot about starting a small business.

I worked for the Laboratory of Protein Chemistry (Prof. L. Moens, Ph.D.) and Molecular Genetics (Prof. C. Van Broeckhoven, Ph.D.). My main project was the follow-up and analysis of 2D PAGE for a project on Alzheimer Dementia (AD). For the analysis of the 2D PAGE I mainly used the BioImage software package on a Sun SPARCstation.
At the Laboratory for Molecular Genetics I was also responsible for bioinformatics and set up a Linux server for web-, print- and file serving (Mac and PC clients) and for bio-informatics applications. This way I learned a lot about using Unix (Linux) systems for biomedical research.
