Chair of the Board of Directors

Amsterdam UMC

Chris Polman is chair of the Board of Directors of Amsterdam UMC, the umbrella organisation of AMC and VUmc, and dean of the Faculty of Medicine at VU University.

Amsterdam UMC is working with the Amsterdam AI coalition and the Amsterdam Economic Board to create an integrated health data infrastructure. This allows available health data to be used reliably and in accordance with the wishes of the patient/citizen for medical research and better healthcare, aimed at reducing health inequalities and promoting prevention.

“We have a unique opportunity in Amsterdam to link health data, for the benefit of today’s and tomorrow’s patient, with the ambition of reducing health disparities.”
