Marc has been a pioneer for healthcare systems that produce high quality yet affordable care, with the methods he has developed now in use in over half of all Dutch hospitals. By applying business principles of operational excellence, he has helped public and private health providers improve value and reduce costs and waste.
As senior partner of health consultancy Plexus, and previously as Professor in Health Policy and Management at Erasmus University in Rotterdam, Marc has developed practical measurements and benchmarking for quality, safety and operational performance and costs across a wide range of care settings.
Among his many achievements are a multi-million Euro hospital quality improvement project, groundbreaking work on policy incentives and payment systems and studies for government, advisory bodies and insurance companies, where he has helped shape the Dutch insurance sector’s approach to procurement. He drives innovation in care procurement strategies for health insurers and led the introduction of integrated care payment for chronic care into the healthcare system for the Dutch government.
He is an acknowledged professional in the methodology and implementation of value-based measurement and contracting and health system design.
Marc has published widely on medical sociology, sociology of technology, standardization, information technology and quality management, including a handbook on Information Management in Healthcare.
