This Masters course on Integrated Care Design at HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht is relevant to people working to achieve innovations in multi-disciplinary health and welfare delivery through service redesign. It is relevant to those working in municipal and health authorities, for insurers, within care providers, the third sector as well as patient associations.
The need to create more integrated systems of care delivery means that health care managers and professionals must take on new roles and learn new skills to develop the joint responsibility that will be needed for a more person-centered approach to care. There is a need for future care professionals to understand not only the future content-related aspects in dealing with more complex cohorts of patients and service users, but also to become experts in the managerial and relational skills necessary in working in new multi-disciplinary teams and environments.
The course is a competence-oriented, two-year and part-time program that offers a cohesive program with regard to content, level didactics and action learning. All of this takes place in a highly effective learning environment in which innovation in practice is the focal point. Students are encouraged to utilize state-of-the-art knowledge from a variety of sources, including scientific literature and also from IFIC’s expert community taking forward integrated care in policy and practice.
After the completion of this graduate program students will have become an authority in the design, delivery and management of integrated care. Students will be able to think both strategically and assertively and use their professional skills and business-oriented insights to lead and manage change successfully. The competences gained will fulfil the roles of the integrated care designer: process manager, advisor, and professional leader.
