Focusing on helping healthcare providers to optimise patient care.
Joke Borzée is a Doctoral Researcher at Vlerick who focuses on value-based healthcare.
She has established a framework for patient value, based on a multidisciplinary approach that combines operations management, management accounting and medicine. It measures patient value by connecting outcomes with the costs involved in achieving them – creating a single value score for each individual patient.
By analysing different hospital settings and disease domains, Joke’s goal is to generate insights into the drivers of patient value – and to explain the variability between different value scores. The results will help healthcare providers to optimise the way they deliver care.
