Research program Organisation and Quality of Healthcare

Lilian van Tuyl'In order to keep the Dutch healthcare accessible, affordable and of high quality - now and in the future - many initiatives have been started to organize it differently.
Within this research program we conduct research into these developments. In doing so, we take into account the perspectives of various stakeholders in healthcare: the patient, the healthcare provider and the organisation of healthcare.'

Points of focus 2022–2024Points of focus 2022–2024


  • The impact of advanced digitalisation of healthcare giving processes.
  • Task shifting or redistribution of tasks in care, taking into account the questions of cohesion, cooperation and broad employability.
  • Contributing to reducing the ecological footprint of care, including the changes in behaviour and organisation that this requires.
  • Patient safety or the continuous monitoring and management of risks in healthcare provision. In doing so we work together with Dutch hospitals and independent treatment clinics.
