Finance and health econimics: Four promising paths
The second of the six topics for the 28th EAHM congress is Finance and Health Economics. This topic will be addressed in one of the six hospitals to be visited in Brussels, Delta (Chirec group). Why this topic? We asked the Chairman, Philippe Blua, CEO of Hôpitaux Champagne-Sud in Troyes (France) and current president of the European Association of Hospital Managers
AZ Delta, the biggest hospital in West Flanders has 1417 beds, spread across 5 sites: three in Roeselare, one in Torhout and one in Menen. By the end of 2019, when the new phase of construction which is currently underway is scheduled to be finished, the institution will only have 4 sites, although the number of beds will still be the same.
XPERTHIS: The challenge of developing synergy between healthcare and administrative procedures
Xperthis is the IT partner of a hospital in its entirety, with all its complexity. Clientele includes more than 100 hospitals in Belgium and the Netherlands, and the company is increasingly present abroad. In 2018, turnover exceeded 34 million euros and it employs a staff of more than 200. We met the CEO, Melchior Wathelet.
