Dear Dr Slack, I’m sorry to hear about your illness. I would like to let you know about the impact you made on my career. We met in the summer of 2012 when I carried out a research project at BIDMC. I was in Boston for just two weeks when you came to me and asked about healthcare in the Netherlands. And somehow we managed to talk for more than an hour about patient empowerment, about the start of DCI, and about the impact of computers in hospitals in doctors. You’ve inspired me to look beyond the daily difficulties of healthcare management: anything is possible and I can make anything happen. That’s what I learned from our talks. Thank you. I wish you and your family all the best. Stephanie The Dutch DCI staff member
