Work­ing field:

The holder of the pos­i­tion has the pos­sib­il­ity to work within a mul­tidiscip­lin­ary, inter­na­tion­ally ori­ent­ated team focus­ing on health­care sys­tems, health ser­vices research, health eco­nom­ics, and health tech­no­logy assess­ment. They will have the oppor­tun­ity to con­trib­ute their own ideas and abil­it­ies con­cern­ing research, teach­ing, and inter­na­tional col­lab­or­a­tion.
A detailed descrip­tion of the Depart­ment's work port­fo­lio can be found here:
Specifically, the pos­i­tion holder will focus on the pro­ject "ESV", which is fun­ded by the Innov­a­tion Fund of the Fed­eral Joint Com­mit­tee. The pro­ject invest­ig­ates the poten­tial of a uni­fied, inter­sect­oral pay­ment mech­an­ism in the Ger­man health care sys­tem. The fol­low­ing ques­tions will be addressed:
  • Which areas of care lend them­selves to an inter­sect­oral health ser­vice deliv­ery?
  • What is the status quo of inter­sect­oral health ser­vice deliv­ery?
  • How do health ser­vice pro­viders (hos­pit­als and ambu­lat­ory care phys­i­cians) per­ceive health ser­vice deliv­ery?
  • What could a joint pay­ment sys­tem look like?
The ques­tions will be answered using a mix of lit­er­at­ure search, case stud­ies, and expert inter­views. Addi­tion­ally, an ana­lysis of routinely col­lec­ted insur­ance claims will he under­taken. Finally, a pro­posal to inform decision-mak­ing for such a pay­ment sys­tem in Ger­many will be developed.
The pos­i­tion holder will carry out a share of this work and accom­pany the work of the entire pro­ject for its dur­a­tion. This includes:
