Training Network for Healthcare Performance Intelligence Professionals: European Commission funds 13 PhD candidates – 2 positions available at OptiMedis

A new generation of healthcare professionals is needed to support healthcare systems to achieve a balance between improving the health of populations, delivering quality care for individuals, and containing costs. To meet this need, a European “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks” grant has been awarded to the Healthcare Performance Intelligence Professional (HealthPros) Consortium, led by the Academic Medical Centre of the University of Amsterdam (NL; coordinator; D. Kringos, N. Klazinga), North Denmark Region/Aalborg University Hospital (DK; J. Mainz, S.P. Johnsen), OptiMedis AG (D; O. Gröne), University of Surrey (UK; S. de Lusignan, F. Carinci), Scuola Superiori di Studi Universitari e di Perfezionamento Sant’Anna (I; S. Nuti, A. Murante), Corvinus University of Budapest (H; L. Gulácsi, P. Baji), and the University of Toronto (A. Brown, J.Veillard) / Canadian Institute for Health Information (CAN; K. Morris).

Starting in January 2018, the consortium will train 13 PhD candidates – 2 of them at OptiMedis – into a first generation of Healthcare Performance Intelligence Professionals (HealthPros) that can make effective use of available healthcare performance data in countries to improve integrated service delivery, patient engagement, equality in access to healthcare, health outcomes, and reduce waste in healthcare.

The HealthPros Training Network will provide an innovative 3-years programme of collaborative, multidisciplinary and entrepreneurial training to the PhD candidates. Through innovative research, HealthPros will develop tools and implement methods to streamline healthcare performance measurement, the development and application of performance-based governance mechanisms and effective use of Healthcare Performance Intelligence by different end-users, that match the different health care systems in the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, UK, Italy, Hungary and Canada, and will support the transferability of the tools and methods to other countries.

The HealthPros consortium will start recruiting for PhD positions in January 2018. Suitable PhD candidates should be willing to be based abroad, not have more than 4 years of research experience, and not have a doctoral degree.
