Our research group
The research group targets (international comparative) research towards innovation processes in healthcare. Many of the research projects of OPIH are aiming at deepening the knowledge in healthcare trajectories, healthcare networks, multidisciplinary and multisectoral collaboration and integration of care, both in the field of acute as in chronic healthcare. A specific line of research within OPIH is about developing expertise in evidence based knowledge transfer: developing methodologies in order to evaluate evidence, to make scientific evidence available for policy makers, and to implement evidence.
OPIH is a multidisciplinary research group which mainly relies on social sciences research methods and with extensive expertise in both qualitative and quantitative research methods and specific expertise in the development and application of evidence based methodologies for organisation, management and policy of healthcare.
