For its research, Nivel makes use of the databases and the panels it manages. With this infrastructure we conduct research in three domains: patients, clients and citizens; healthcare professionals and healthcare organizations; policy makers in healthcare.
Databases and Panels
At Nivel we feature a large amount of data, often collected over many years. This allows us to contribute to research with new, innovative research methods such as research with predictive models, big data analyzes such as machine learning and network analyzes. We present seven of our registries/panels:
Nivel Primary Care Database
Nivel Primary Care Database (Nivel Zorgregistraties Eerste Lijn) uses routinely recorded data from health care providers to monitor health and utilisation of health services in a representative sample of the Dutch population.
Nivel Healthcare Professionals Registries
The health workforce department comprises of registries of professionals, planning of demand for professionals and labour force surveys.
4 Panels of healthcare users
Nivel surveys healthcare from the perspective of the citizens, patients and users of care. The panels of healthcare users collect information on opinions, knowledge, experiences and needs concerning healthcare of these groups. The panels are:
- Nivel Dutch Health Care Consumer Panel
- Nivel National Panel of the Chronically ill and Disabled
- Nivel Panel of People with Lung Disease
- Nivel Panel of People with Intellectual Disabilities
Nursing Staff Panel
The Nivel Nursing Staff Panel collects information on opinions and experiences of nurses on professional subjects, working conditions and work experience.
