A new generation of healthcare professionals is needed to support healthcare systems to achieve a balance between improving the health of populations, delivering quality care for individuals, and containing costs. To meet this need, a European “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks” grant has been awarded to the Healthcare Performance Intelligence Professional (HealthPros) Consortium, led by the Academic Medical Centre of the University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands; coordinator; D. Kringos, N. Klazinga), North Denmark Region/Aalborg University Hospital (Denmark; J. Mainz, S.P. Johnsen), Optimedis AG (Germany; O. Groene), University of Surrey (United Kingdom; S. de Lusignan, F. Carinci), Scuola Superiori di Studi Universitari e di Perfezionamento Sant’Anna (Italy; S. Nuti, A. Murante), Corvinus University of Budapest (Hungary; L. Gulácsi, P. Baji), and the University of Toronto (R. Cockerill) / Canadian Institute for Health Information (Canada; K. Morris).
Starting in January 2018, the consortium will train 13 PhD candidates into a first generation of Healthcare Performance Intelligence Professionals (HealthPros) that can make effective use of available healthcare performance data in countries to improve integrated service delivery, patient engagement, equality in access to healthcare, health outcomes, and reduce waste in healthcare.
The HealthPros Training Network will provide an innovative 3-years programme of collaborative, multidisciplinary and entrepreneurial training to the PhD candidates. Through innovative research, HealthPros will develop tools and implement methods to streamline healthcare performance measurement, the development and application of performance-based governance mechanisms and effective use of Healthcare Performance Intelligence by different end-users, that match the different health care systems in the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, UK, Italy, Hungary and Canada, and will support the transferability of the tools and methods to other countries.
The HealthPros consortium will start recruiting for PhD positions in January 2018. Suitable PhD candidates should be willing to be based abroad, not have more than 4 years of research experience, and not have a doctoral degree.

Economic evaluation of informal care
Keynote speaker: Prof. Ulrike Schneider, Head of the Department of Socioeconomics, Full Professor of Economic and Social Policy at Vienna University of Economics and Business.
Informal care is a significant source of support for adults with a limited ability to engage in activities of daily living. Policy makers often consider informal care as a low-cost mode of providing help to dependent older people that is essential for containing public spending on long-term care. Thus, sustaining informal care is a clear policy priority.
However, the empirical literature points to substantial private and public cost of informal care. Providing care adds to other roles and callings in daily life and has shown to adversely affect informal carers’ quality of life, health and financial well-being. Against this backdrop, the lecture will present valuation methods for informal care.
