Jos de Blok is the founder of Dutch organisation Buurtzorg, where he pioneers new ways of delivering home-based healthcare. Within Buurtzorg, autonomous teams of nurses work directly with their patients, in a community-based network free from management structure.

At Meaning 2015, Jos explained how this innovative model frees nurses from administrative burdens, allowing them to focus on the business of providing quality care. Buurtzorg works in ways that not only meet the needs of patients in their homes, but the needs of employees too – the company has three times been declared the Netherlands’ ‘employer of the year’.
