About Diego Fornaciari
Diego has built up special expertise within the health sector from different angles and therefore has a 360° view of the complexity and sensitivities that characterize this sector. In 2011, Diego obtained a doctorate from the KU Leuven Faculty of Law with the dissertation “The interplay between competition law and the right to high-quality patient care”.
As a lawyer, Diego learned the tools of the trade in various firms specializing in health law. The knowledge he had thus accumulated was then supplemented with the pragmatics and hands-on consultancy required as a legal and strategic policy coordinator at the AZ Delta Hospital in Roeselare. During this period, Diego was also able to provide legal support for the implementation of two mergers, a new electronic patient record (EPR) and the establishment of a regional clinical hospital network.
Although Diego focuses on health law in a broad sense, he has a special interest in the legal aspects of “entrepreneurship” and of innovation in healthcare.
