Christian Oberlé

Originally from Luxembourg, Christian Oberlé has been the President of the National Health Insurance (CNS) and the eHealth Agency since 2018.

He is particularly involved in the digital transformation of the Health Sector and considers the three following health issues to be among the most pressing challenges to be faced:

  • Modernizing the CNS through an agile organization and a digital transformation.
  • Improving the health system and introducing appropriate incentives to mobilize the full potential of preventive medicine that has a key role in delivering health benefits.
  • Accelerating the digital transformation of the health and care sector to become more resilient, accessible and effective in providing quality care.

He actively participates in several interministerial digital health task forces:

  • a first group working on the establishment of a National Agency for digital governance in health and on the feasibility to implement a single integrated information system for the hospital and the extra-hospital sector
  • a second task force preparing the necessary framework to integrate digital health applications into the Luxembourg health system
  • a third task force studying the opportunity to position Luxembourg as launchpad for digital health in Europe

He is a graduate in business administration (University of Liège) and holder of an MBA from HEC University of Lausanne. From 2000, he held the position of Administrative and Financial

Director of the François Elisabeth Foundation, monitoring the construction of the Centre Hospitalier Kircherg, the merger of 5 Luxembourg hospitals and the development of the newly created hospital group in terms of governance, organizational strategy, management, digitalization and excellence. In 2006, he also took charge of the General Management of the Bohler Clinic.

From 2017, he became Director of the Robert Schuman Hospitals Foundation and merged the five hospitals together with the newly acquired ZithaKlinik within one structure, the Robert Schuman Hospitals S.A., of which he held the position of Deputy General Manager.

As board member of the Federation of Luxembourg Hospitals (FHL), he committed to optimize the IT of the hospital sector and initiated Luxith, an FHL spinoff created to pool IT investments that he chaired until November 2018.
