The Berlin Centre of Health Economics Research (BerlinHECOR) is constituted of the Department of Health Care Management  together with partner institutions at Technische Universität and Charité Berlin under the direction of Professor Dr. Reinhard Busse. BerlinHECOR was established in July 2012 and is funded with approximately €4.2 million by the German Ministry of Education (BMBF). Dr. Cornelia Henschke leads the junior scientist group at the Department of Health Care Management and coordinates BerlinHECOR's activities.
The major aims of Centre are a sustainable formation of an internationally recognised research network, together with the implementation and organisation of a comprehensive performance assessment approach within the German health system. With respect to the Health Systems Framework of the World Health Organization (WHO), BerlinHECOR particularly focuses on research in the areas of Public Health, Health Inequalities, Responsiveness and Efficiency in Health Care. Aim is to publish the results in the internationally acknowledged literature; and to provide comprehensible summaries and key figures to inform public and to facilitate evidence-based health policies. International summer schools, research stays abroad and exchange programmes with Brussels, Helsinki, London, Paris, Rotterdam and York are integral parts of the agenda.
Working closely together, the MeDIoRI , captureACCESS , IPHA  and FINSUNG projects also cooperate with other institutions within the German health system. The research institutes of three sickness funds (WIdO, WINEG, DAK) provide us with administrative health insurance data and the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KBV) offers access to data from the ambulatory sector. The Junior Research Group CHeC will further analyze primary data from clinical trials in cooperation with the Charité.
A major aim is to report results in comprehensible summaries and key figures and to present a comprehensive overview over the German health system. The findings are intended to provide an empirical basis for policy makers to conceive evidence based strategies in health policy.
International summer schools and exchange programmes with our partners in Brussels, Helsinki, London, Paris, Rotterdam and York are scheduled.
