Within the Value Based Healthcare Center Europe we have arranged a 6-day study tour of the healthcare system of the United Kingdom for you. This tour is the successor of the well received 2012 study tour in the Netherlands hosted by The Decision Group and its partner AUPHA, association for USA healthcare management education. UK citizens highly value their healthcare system.

How sustainable is this free healthcare system and how is innovation managed?

–          Visit world class hospitals
–          Discuss healthcare challenges with the international selection of academic leading healthcare management educators

The purpose of this tour is to provide stakeholders with new ways to think about specific health management and policy issues by interacting with experts from other countries that are grappling with similar problems. The focus will be on areas in which the United Kingdom and the NHS has excelled or experimented with innovative programs, or has unique challenges from which we can learn.
