An enthusiastic group of academic health administration professionals visited The Netherlands last week. Together with AUPHA, The Decision Group’s affiliate The Decision Institute organized a study tour of the Dutch Healthcare System. The purpose of tour was to provide new ways to think about specific health management and policy issues. How the Netherlands has excelled or experimented with innovative programs and what are the unique challenges to learn from.
Large (academic) network
A large network of main players in healthcare was provided; from policy makers, and (academic) hospitals till insurers and patient organisations. The connections of The Decision Group were the focus of this week. The group visited amongst others the Ministry of Health, Menzis Healthcare and the Catharina Ziekenhuis. The participants were impressed by the Dutch System. The approval of the Obama Care Act gave a special touch to the tour.
