Together with Dr. Jan Kimpen (CMO at Philips) and Eline de Vroome (Lead Medical Device Analyst at LeQuest) the founder and CEO of LeQuest, Hicham Shatou, was honored to be able to explain to Queen Máxima how LeQuest’s innovative online training methods for medical devices contributes to the quality, affordability and accessibility of global healthcare.
