Ragna van den Berg – This Is Your Captain Speaking

Ragna started her healthcare career nursing and then moved on to become a social worker. During her years working in mental healthcare, she was an avid champion for her clients, always putting their interest and perspective first. As an e-health early adopter, she started her own business as an online social worker. Then in the summer of 2010 she was struck by a subarachnoid hemorrhage. There are many hurdles on her way to recovery, which she tackles with a vengeance. As she struggles with sensory integration problems, she turned to Twitter as an alternative source of human contact. She started blogging about their condition and progress to recovery and in doing so, managed to start up a dialogue with her therapists, thus intensifying, changing and improving her treatment as well as strengthening her ideas about the future of healthcare.
