Vlerick expertise in Healthcare Management

  1. What does the hospital of the future look like?

    Our healthcare is constantly evolving so as to meet the changing demands of patients. What does the hospital of the future look like? What is the future role of hospitals in the healthcare system? And how can all stakeholders prepare for it? The Flemish government entrusted researchers at the Leuven Institute for Healthcare Policy (LIGB) of KU Leuven and Vlerick Business School with finding an answer to these questions. The findings of their study were published in a green paper that serves as support for future policy decisions.
  2. Medicines: how much should they cost?

    Although medical progress is allowing us to treat more and more diseases, innovative medicines tend to be expensive. Expenses are rising constantly in the healthcare sector as a result, putting accessibility and affordability under pressure. Which criteria does the Belgian Commission for Reimbursement of Medicines apply and what could be improved? These questions are answered in a study based on RIZIV data, in the framework of the Roche Chair at the Vlerick Healthcare Management Centre.
