Vlerick expertise in Healthcare Management

  1. An IT roadmap for hospitals: one size does not fit all

    Digital technologies have become indispensable in the healthcare sector. They help to achieve better and cheaper healthcare. Policymakers are focusing strongly on eHealth and collaboration between the various players in the healthcare ecosystem. Belgian hospitals have already spent too long using IT purely as a support tool, however, with all the associated consequences. It is essential for them not to miss the boat. Professor Brecht Cardoen and professor Bjorn Cumps explain how a tool which was developed in collaboration with hospitals and their stakeholders can help.
  2. Hospital networks: quo vadis?

    Hospitals are increasingly joining forces in networks of different types, sometimes with other healthcare players. This is an unmistakable trend, but forming networks is also an important strategic decision. How can hospitals ensure the right decisions are taken, both today and tomorrow, guaranteeing a robust, resilient and versatile organisation in the long run? Changes are rapidly succeeding one another, but who knows what healthcare will be like fifteen years from now and what the best set-up would be for these networks? No one can predict the future. However, despite all the uncertainties, a scenario analysis can help in the decision-making process.
