Research for Business in Healthcare
Our Research, your Practice
Research is deeply connected to the roots of Vlerick as an academic business school. Our professors and researchers guarantee a sound scientific approach in all the projects we execute. At the same time we actively collaborate with organisations to come to pragmatic solutions. Vlerick’s experience in Healthcare makes us a reliable partner. Collaboration between our healthcare experts and your organisation happens in a variety of formats: either through a research partnership in the longer term or shorter advisory research projects.
A Research Partnership that Supports Management Practice
Do you think your organisation could benefit from applied research? Are you searching for a partnership that integrates research and education? If so, than one of our research centres might meet your needs. MINOZ is a research centre for hospitals and focuses on operational management. In the Heathcare Supply Chain Research Network actors from the whole industry participate.
The centres are partnerships between a number of organisations and Vlerick within a specific management domain. Within healthcare, practical relevant themes are researched and management concepts, tools and frameworks are applied to the sector. One essential aspect is the open dialogue and interaction between the participating companies. This stimulates you to directly translate these insights in your own work environment.
Our Offer is Too Good to Miss
In addition to conducting long term research that contributes to fundamental academic knowledge, our research approach also encompasses practice-based research projects on a shorter term. These projects rely upon the findings of core academic knowledge and scientific grounded models.
Your organisation is confronted with a specific management problem? You’re searching for concrete solutions within your own context? Then contract research is something for you. Together with you, we examine your needs and requirements and, in close collaboration with you, we propose a tailor-made approach. In addition, we translate the research results into concrete, ready-to-implement recommendations.
Are you looking for tools to develop your organisation? You've come to the right address. In close consultation with you, we define the functionalities and develop an instrument according to your specifications.
Are you in need of a directly applicable solution for a business problem or strategic challenge? A Vlerick in-company project offers your company the opportunity to carry out a strategic or a significant operational project that you might not normally be able to resource.
In conclusion, customised research, tools, student projects, with or without related workshops ... the possibilities are wide open. Please contact us for an overview of all possibilities.
