Analysis of the usage of service standards in healthcare
European standardization in the healthcare sector has traditionally been mostly limited to medical devices and e-health applications. The increasing mobility of patients and healthcare professionals means that there is a greater need for transparency, in order to make it possible to measure the quality and compare healthcare services and ensure patient safety. We now seek master students willing to make a thorough scientific analysis of the usage of service standards in healthcare on a European level.
