What's happening at MSC:
MSC researcher is partner in major Innovation Fund Denmark research project
Professor Esben Rahbek Gjerdrum Pedersen (MSC) is engaged in a new collaborative project, PreCare, which has received substantial funding from Innovation Fund Denmark for a three-year project period.
The project focuses on population health management and preventive health care solutions for citizens in Odsherred. Some of the key tasks in the project include the development of a health data platform and the establishment of an E-doctor organization for patients with chronic diseases.
The MSC contribution to PreCare
MSC contributes to the PreCare project with knowledge on value-based business models and partnerships. For instance, researchers from CBS will analyse how population health management in Odsherred can be linked to new Pay-for-Success (PFS) models. Moreover, CBS participates in the development of education and communication material based on the experiences from the PreCare project.
Partners in the project currently include Region Zealand, Odsherred Municipality, Roche, DTU, Urgent Agency, and Manchester Business School.
