Creating Value-Based Health Care

Within the research line Creating Value-Based Healthcare (VHC) we focus on the organization, economics, policy and governance of health care innovation in the whole continuum of care from a regional, national and international perspective.

Research and impact

The research line Creating Value-Based Health Care provides high-quality multidisciplinary research and teaching focusing on innovations in health services; its goal is to improve the quality of life of citizens and patients, as well as the quality, efficiency, and sustainability of health care. We aim to achieve this by studying interventions in an innovative way addressing the broad spectrum from prevention to palliative care.

Health economists from Maastricht University and the English city of Birmingham therefore call for a broader societal perspective in studies evaluating the economic impact of corona measures.

  • Tackling loneliness will also cut healthcare costs

    Monday, February 8, 2021

    Maastricht researchers argue that urgent measures are needed to tackle loneliness in society. Aside from their mental welfare needs, people who suffer from severe or very severe loneliness incur 40 to 50 percent higher healthcare costs up to a year later compared to people who don’t feel lonely. The difference is greatest among young people aged between 19 and 40.
