The e-Health expertise group of UG's Faculty of Economics and Business has a unique combination of knowledge and expertise, which distinguishes it from other research groups that are involved in digitalization in healthcare. Within our expert group, we collaborate in multidisciplinary teams, with experts from the fields of organizational psychology, marketing, supply chain management, implementation and change management, epidemiology, technical business administration and health technology assessment.
In our view, knowledge development about how e-health can be designed collaboratively, can be integrated within changing care processes and can be appropriated by citizens in a way that suits them is of critical importance. This knowledge and expertise contributes to the realization of blended care models that are necessary for perpetuating the accessibility and quality of our healthcare system and making the system more sustainable. So far, the implementation and upscaling of e-Health has not been as fast and successful as desired. Many initiatives remain stuck in the pilot phase. Moreover, organizations do not appear to be sufficiently aware of each other's initiatives and are not always connected to each other.
