Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks grant of 3.4 million euro for Dionne Kringos and Niek Klazinga on Healthcare System Performance Intelligence

Dr. Dionne Kringos and Prof. Niek Klazinga at AMC department of Public Health, members of Quality of Care, received a European “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks” grant of 3.4 million euro for their project entitled “HEALTHPROS: European Training Network for Healthcare Performance Intelligence Professionals”.

The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks grant provides experience outside academia, hence developing innovation and employability skills to train a new generation of creative and innovative researchers, able to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit in the European Union and beyond.

The HEALTHPROS project will train 13 PhD students into Healthcare Performance Intelligence Professionals that can make effective use of available healthcare performance data in countries to improve integrated service delivery, patient engagement, equality in access to healthcare, health outcomes, and reduce waste in healthcare.

Research will be performed on healthcare performance measurement, performance-based healthcare governance mechanisms and the utilisation of healthcare performance intelligence by different end-users. This is essential for channelling the various dynamics in healthcare towards high-performing healthcare systems. Healthcare Performance Intelligence Professionals (HEALTHPROS) are needed for realising the Triple Aim goal of healthcare systems: to achieve a balance between improving the health of populations, delivering quality care for individuals, and containing costs.
