Support for core clinical processes 

The aim is to provide comprehensive services that ensure a seamless patient care process. This includes, among other things, inpatient care and interfaces of the hospital for primary and specialist care and / or rehabilitation. The focus of research activities is the risk-adjusted comparison (benchmarking) of clinical outcome, processes and costs. These data form the basis for standardization efforts in the context of process management. A platform of hospitals in Upper Austria (gespag, Klinikum Wels-Grieskirchen and the university hospital) are developing this research orientation together with the course of studies Process Management Health (PMG).
 
R & D activities focus on topics such as "reorganization of core clinical processes" and "integrated care" as well as "IT support in the health care system." A key success factor in this context is how Peter Drucker, with his familiar phrase "You can’t manage what you can’t measure ". To this end, PMG has developed the LeiVMed programme in the course of several practical and research projects as well as numerous international research activities.
