The aim of the research area ‘Health’ is to increase knowledge and find ways of applying it constructively in practice. Business research conducted on the management of cost-bearing institutions, health services, hospitals and pharmaceuticals is as much of a focus as economic research in areas such as evaluation. A key part of this is measuring the outcomes of health measures, as simple cost analysis is not enough. For this reason, qualitative effects of health services play a significant role for all aspects that are considered.
