As of 1 May, the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Groningen announces a new name for the centre of expertise focusing on Health Care Management & Economics: “Healthwise – Research on Health Care Management & Economics”.
The new name gives the centre a more explicit label for the faculty research related to the RUG theme Healthy Ageing. The former centre of expertise RHO (Research on Healthcare Organisation & Innovation) has merged into Healthwise.
Healthwise conducts research in, for example, quality and efficiency in healthcare, organizational change, e-health, pensions, mechanisms of the healthcare market and consumer behaviour in the use of medication.
Improving patient flow
Healthwise researchers are also involved in the question how hospitals can organize and plan their shared resources (such as operating rooms or radiology) in such a way that it improves patient flow. This research is conducted against the background of the healthcare market system and the increasing demand for healthcare, requiring an increasingly efficient use of means.
Another example of Healthwise research focuses on the effect of work climate on various individual outcome variables, such as turnover intentions, staff satisfaction and performance of nurses.
