Health Care Research
The "Health Care Research"- working group deals with the planning, monitoring and evaluation of studies in the field of Health Care Research.
A typical example of such studies are studies with complex interventions or innovative forms of care, which are tested for their effectiveness under everyday conditions in controlled and sometimes randomized studies or existing care models are compared with each other. With the resulting knowledge, the care of various patient and population groups should subsequently be improved on an evidence-based basis. A complex intervention consists of several individual components. This can be, for example, a disease management program or a graded, cross-sector care model. In most cases, primary data is collected and evaluated in these studies; secondary data, such as the routine data collected for the billing of healthcare services, is also occasionally used.
This data is often analyzed in collaboration with colleagues in Health Economics .
The Institute for Medical Biometry and Epidemiology is a part of the Center for Health Care Research (CHCR) .
