Challenges in Health Care

Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr is a research collaboration focused on “Health care challenges in regions with declining and ageing populations”. Its aim is to analyse the causes and consequences of regional differences in health care, to derive policies to address the impending under-provision of health care and to evaluate selected measures to improve the efficiency of health-care provision.

Research Area


Regional Variation

Health care supply and demand display large regional variation. LSCR studies the reasons for this variation and considers the consequences for health policy. This research area consists of the following four projects.

Research Area


Sustainable Supply

Demographic trends will result in a reduction of qualified health-care personnel. We analyse how this development will affect health care provision in order to develop solutions that ensure access to ambulatory care in rural areas.

Research Area


Prevention

In the face of dwindling health-care resources, one way to maintain high-quality care is by reducing demand. In this context, disease prevention and understanding health care demand are increasingly important.

About us

Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr

Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr is a research collaboration focused on “Health care challenges in regions with declining and ageing populations”. Its aim is to analyse the causes and consequences of regional differences in health care, to derive policies to address the impending under-provision of health care and to evaluate selected measures to improve the efficiency of health-care provision.

LSCR focuses on the three research areas: Regional Variation, Sustainable Supply, Prevention.

Partners

LSCR combines the health economic expertise of the RWI – Leibniz Institute of Economic Research, the University of Duisburg-Essen, and Tilburg University and creates the first research community in Germany to focus on health care in demographically declining regions. It is funded by the Leibniz Association and exhibits a diverse network of external partners (AOK-NordWest, DRV-Westfalen, Maternus-Klinik Bad Oeynhausen, and TK).
