Health Technology and Services Research (HTSR)

The focus of HTSR lies in the assessment of use, advantages, and disadvantages, of (early) health technologies from the patients’ and societal perspective. This includes research into the effect of a new technology on clinical and health outcomes, quality and safety of healthcare, delivery of health services, and the associated healthcare costs. The organization of the healthcare system and patient values, which underpin patient heterogeneity, are important determinants of the appropriate use of technology and as such are an integral part of our research regarding implementation and use of technologies.

HTSR is a department at the Faculty of Behavioural, Management & Social Sciences and our research is mostly embedded in the MIRA institute for Biomedical Technology & Technical Medicine (MIRA).
