The research line “Evaluation of Healthcare and Health IT Systems” focuses on the following themes:
1) Audit and Feedback; including the development of quality indicators and the theory-based design and evaluation of feedback, in order to improve the quality of care.
2) The reuse of routinely collected medical data from electronic health records. These data can be reused for (medical) quality registries and for other purposes such as research, finance and management information. Topics of research are data quality, registration burden of care professionals, and challenges and benefits of the FAIR principles - a set of guiding principles with the aim to make data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. There is specific attention for the “I” in FAIR, i.e. semantic interoperability of the data, which is the ability of computer systems to exchange digital health information while keeping the meaning of the data, across diverse care settings, end-users and clinical software systems.
3) The theory-based evaluation of health IT systems.
The research projects performed within this research line are mainly applied in the medical domain of intensive care.
