Bas Bloem is an expert in neurological movement disorders, in particular Parkinson’s disease. He is also a healthcare innovator who focuses on integrating medical research and its clinical applications. An excellent example is the national network ParkinsonNet, set up by Bloem and human movement scientist Marten Munneke, in which more than three thousand specialist Parkinson’s caregivers in the Netherlands work together and with patients. ParkinsonNet has made it possible to test many different treatment methods and develop lifestyle guidelines, with patients playing an active role. This innovative approach has improved the quality of care while lowering costs and is being emulated worldwide.
