Healthcare and life sciences

Building and expanding upon our many years of expertise in hospital management, we set up the Vlerick Healthcare Management Centre (HMC) in 2014.
Today, we work with leading actors including doctors, hospitals, life science companies, health payers and regulators on finding answers to the big challenges facing the sector.
Our research draws upon the themes of affordable innovation (market access challenges) and the concept of value-based healthcare. In our collaborative research network with hospitals, we focus on healthcare delivery research – the strategic, financial and operational management of hospitals.

Who we work with

Since 2017, we’ve entered into a strategic partnership with the Catholic University of Leuven, ranked as the most innovative university in Europe for the 3rd year in a row (Reuters Ranking 2018). By bringing our networks together, we have formed an impressive ecosystem in terms of healthcare and innovation in the Low Countries and the United Kingdom. This has been made possible thanks to the strategic partnerships we have set up for this purpose with pioneering international institutions in care management, namely Imperial College London and University Medical Centre (UMC) Utrecht in the Netherlands. It is our shared mission to break down the barriers between scientists, the business community and the care sector, to give innovation in healthcare a chance.
