Interdisciplinary Center for Health Technology Assessment and Public Health (IZPH)
What we are
In societies with demographic shift and budget constraints, the greatest challenges in health care – especially for the German Health Care System – are the efficient provision of health care services, quality improvement, and cost reduction. Solving those socially important challenges requires multi-professional outcomes research.
The Interdisciplinary Center for Health Technology Assessment and Public Health (IZPH) of the FAU is the first thematically inter-professional German research platform on Health Outcomes Research across faculties of the FAU. It was founded in 2001 and systematically merges scientific insights from the three Faculties of Medicine, of Engineering, and of Business, Economics, and Law. Central aims of the IZPH are the scientific-oriented and evidence-based political consulting using population and registry data as well as an analysis of health care under everyday conditions (“real-world evidence”).
