Learning objectives

The IAC Seasonal School will cover specific research topics underpinning the public health care system, with an emphasis on the analysis of real world evidence and data for a better use of assets and resources to achieve better outcomes and improved efficiency of care, as well as regarding the recent managerial implications of the recent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Students will explore tools and frameworks related to data management, business and process reengineering, innovation strategies, decision-making processes and performance assessment in the field of health care services adopting both a theoretical and empirical approach. Moreover, innovative solutions to boost patients and community participation, engagement and co-production in the care process will be discussed and analysed in different care settings. Students will be able to discuss challenging research issues, such as: how to measure and assess the performance of the care given; what are the possible data driven solutions to cope with variation; how to develop innovative interventions based on patients-centred care; what are the main levers to improve the quality and appropriateness of care and how to address the challenges facing the pandemic crisis from the organizational perspective. Finally, a different research methodological approach will be discussed.

Teaching methodologies

The IAC Seasonal School is a full online web-based programme. A mix of lecture-based and laboratory classes will be developed by professors and researchers. Participants will be actively engaged through a balanced mix of interactive theoretical lectures and simulations, debates and discussions on real case studies. Moreover, facilitators will be available in order to foster the interactions and improve the discussion during the lab classes.

The Seasonal School is open to advanced undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students from various backgrounds interested in the field of health care management.
