Increase quality of care with population management
Population management (PM), the use of data for a specific group, is increasingly being used to clarify problems in healthcare. In this way, poor-scoring healthcare providers can be identified and regional differences can be explained. Roy Hendrikx analysed data from dozens of PM initiatives in the US, the UK and the Netherlands (such as Zorgkaart Nederland). Conclusion: PM initiatives do not always achieve their goals. On Friday 21 June he will defend his dissertation ‘Measuring Populations, in search of methods to evaluate health and experienced quality of care’ at Tilburg University.
