Project overview


Balancing between improving population health, delivering quality care for individuals, and containing costs is a
timely social/economical challenge in Europe. There is great potential achieving this through healthcare (HC) system
performance intelligence optimizing effective use of available HC data in countries. Effective implementation of HC
performance intelligence (HPI) by skilled professionals will improve integrated service delivery; patient engagement;
equality in access to HC; health outcomes; and reduce waste in HC. Translating HC data into meaningful, valid,
actionable performance intelligence that is transferrable into actions to improve HC systems requires multidisciplinary
skills & innovative competencies; currently not well developed in training programmes and the scientific community
and missing in today’s European HC market. The ETN for HPI Professionals (HealthPros) fills this gap and directly
impacts the European Research Area by training innovative “Healthcare Performance Intelligence Professionals”
uniting a multidisciplinary consortium tackling private, public, academic sectors.13 ESRs will be trained in
multidisciplinary innovative scientific technical and complementary skills, seconded to private / public / academic
HC sectors in multiple countries and build relations with potential future employers. 5 ESRs work on PhD projects
related to HC performance measurement optimizing the use of available registry and administrative data and applying
statistical models to provide actionable input to HC performance management. 4 ESRs work on PhDs to translate
performance intelligence into value-creating HC governance mechanisms; 4 ESRs work on PhDs aimed to impact the
actual use of performance intelligence by different end-users. ESRs will have unique HC data access.
