Health systems around the world need to adjust to the epidemiological and demographic transitions, which jointly imply that more (chronic) care needs to be delivered by fewer health (care) professionals. The new chair in health systems will contribute to the scientific and policy debate on the realization of a sustainable health system in The Netherlands and specifically in the Northern Netherlands. This applies to the region-wide policy level as well as to the individual organizational level. In order to maintain a sustainable health system, extant organizations will have to collaborate closely in integrated care networks, which, ideally, encompass the full spectrum from community-based prevention via primary care to tertiary care and back again. In this context, policy effectiveness and efficiency have to be assessed in an observational context where appropriate quantitative and/or qualitative methods have to be applied for causal inference.
Department of Operations
The Department of Operations is one of the largest European research groups on operations, with focal areas in Operations Management, Operations Research, and Industrial Engineering. The department has over 25 tenured or tenure-track faculty in addition to several part-time lecturers and about 20 PhD students. Healthcare is one of the key empirical domains for this research group.
