Application of multiday 24h-accelerometry in epidemiology to study habitual overall physical activity, activity intensity levels, and their determinants

Jaeschke, Lina (2018)

Physical activity (PA) is an established protective lifestyle factor for chronic disease risk. Reliably assessing PA, deriving unbiased PA estimates, and knowing determinants of PA are preconditions for drawing persuasive conclusions on exposure-disease associations in epidemiology and for successfully implementing PA promotion strate-gies. Most of the evidence regarding PA relies on subjective...

The role of contextual factors for breastfeeding outcomes and their potential integration inted guidelines: case studies of Germany, the United Kingdom and Ghana

Waldherr, Ruth (2018)

Introduction: Breastfeeding is recognized as an important public health issue with high social and economic implications. According to the WHO, it should be initiated within one hour after birth, exclusive breastfeeding should be practiced for six months, and the entire period should last for two years.

Verwendung von Krankenhausabrechnungsdaten für die Versorgungsforschung in Deutschland

Nimptsch, Ulrike (2018)

Seitdem die akutstationären Krankenhausleistungen in Deutschland auf der Grundlage des fallpauschalierenden Vergütungssystems der Diagnosis Related Groups (DRG) vergütet werden, sind in den administrativen Datenbeständen der deutschen Krankenhäuser umfassende medizinische Informationen verfügbar. Da die Abrechnung nach dem DRG-System für nahezu alle Patienten und alle Krankenhäuser zur Anwendun...

Research Information Standards Adoption

Riechert, Mathias ; Roberson, Owen ; Wastl, Jürgen (2017-03-21)

While Research Information continues to mature as an area of expertise, discussions regarding the implementation and adoption of standardisation initiatives, such as CASRAI and CERIF, have intensified. Possessing the capacity to use a standard does not obligate its adoption, so the extent to which standards are employed varies across use cases and institutions, in a way that is difficult to qua...

Bender, Max Ernst ; Edwards, Suzanne ; Philipsborn, Peter von ; Steinbeis, Fridolin ; Keil, Thomas ; Tinnemann, Peter (2015)

Neglected tropical disease research has changed considerably in recent decades, and the German government is committed to addressing its past neglect of NTD research. Our aim was to use an innovative social network analysis of bibliometric data to map neglected tropical disease research networks that are inside of and affiliated with Germany, thereby enabling data-driven health policy decision-...

Van den Heede, Koen ; Quentin, Wilm ; Dubois, Cécile ; Devriese, Stephan ; Van de Voorde, Carine (2017-04)

Internationally the number of emergency department (ED) visits is on the rise while evidence suggests that a substantial proportion of these patients do not require emergency care but primary care. This paper presents the Belgian 2016 proposal for the reorganisation of urgent care provision and places it into its political context. The proposal focused on re-designing patient flow aiming to red...

As of 2014, the Estonian Health Insurance Fund has adopted new purchasing procedures and criteria, which it now has started to implement in specialist care. Main changes include (1) redefined access criteria based on population need rather than historical supply, which aim to achieve more equal access of providers and specialties; (2) stricter definition and use of optimal workload criteria to ...

Price anchoring in Online Markets: an Empirical Assessment

Bogliacino, Francesco ; Cuntz, Alexander (2013)

There is a large literature in behavioral economics contradicting the empirical prediction of rational choice theory once applied to auctions. The issue is of particular relevance due to the large use of auctions in mechanism design. One of the heuristics that may induce biased behavior is anchoring, namely the possibility that uninformative information influences choices. In this article we as...

Standardization and international business: evidence from German micro data

Müller, Jo-Ann (2018)

Increasing globalization opens up market opportunities, but also results in increased competition. In order to meet the strong opposing forces for customization and cost efficiency at work at the same time, firms aim to simultaneously increase the level of product adaption and efficiency. Standardization can play a significant role for international businesses to achieve these goals. The objec...

Neue Untersuchungs- und Behandlungsmethoden im stationären Sektor

Ex, Patricia (2018)

Die Finanzierung neuer Gesundheitstechnologien im stationären Sektor erfolgt oft über Entgelte für Neue Untersuchungs- und Behandlungsmethoden (NUB-Entgelte) als temporäres Erstattungsinstrument. Mehr als zehn Jahre nach ihrer Einführung gibt es kaum Studien über NUB-Entgelte und wie sie die Anwendung und Verbreitung von neuen Gesundheitstechnologien beeinflussen. Auch die Ergänzung einer Nutze...

Not just the what and how, but also the who: the impact of entrepreneurship educators

Steiner, Susanne (2014)

The profile of entrepreneurship educators is as unexplored as it is diverse. While many studies in entrepreneurship education (EE) look at students and their entrepreneurial learning process (e.g., Peterman and Kennedy, 2003; Fayolle et al., 2006; Pittaway and Cope, 2007; Müller, 2009), they have so far paid little attention to the profiles of educators. Educators’ profiles, however, might pla...

Entrepreneurship education in the age of effectuation: teaching strategies evidence from Mexico and Germany

Guerrero, Maribel ; Steiner, Susanne (2011)

The positive impact of Entrepreneurship on economic development has been supported by many research studies (Drucker 1985). Based on those, education and training have been confirmed as relevant factors in promoting and fostering an entrepreneurial perspective (Gibb 1994; Peterman and Kennedy 2003; Kuratko 2005; Pittaway and Cope 2007). Therefore, universities have increasingly incorporated ent...

Show me the money: the impact of funding on entrepreneurship education at German universities

Steiner, Susanne ; Kratzer, Jan ; Haase, Heiko (2013)

This article examines the current characteristics of Entrepreneurship Education (EE) at German universities. We first assess the degree of alignment between course objectives and corresponding contents on an individual course level. As a result, we find a low degree of alignment. In the second part of our analysis we show that the German universities in our sample predominantly use internal fun...

Resource orchestration as source of competitive advantage of cities

Berseck, Nadja (2018)

This doctoral dissertation responds to the call on the management community to refocus on real-world problems amid the current trend towards increasing urbanization. The first strategy scholar, who applied his model of competitive advantage of firms to nations, cities or places, was Michael Porter. Since then, scholars form other disciplines such as economics, economic geography, sociology and ...

Health care public reporting utilization

Pross, Christoph ; Averdunk, Lars-Henrik ; Stjepanovic, Josip ; Busse, Reinhard ; Geissler, Alexander (2017)

Quality of care public reporting provides structural, process and outcome information to facilitate hospital choice and strengthen quality competition. Yet, evidence indicates that patients rarely use this information in their decision-making, due to limited awareness of the data and complex and conflicting information. While there is enthusiasm among policy makers for public reporting, clinici...
