Maastricht UMC+ wants to keep people healthy and prevent the need for treatment as much as possible. The promotion and maintenance of good health are just as important to us as helping patients recover their health. This is also reflected in our motto: Healthy Living. This motto also reflects the close interrelationship of our three core activities – patient care, scientific research, and training & education. It is also an excellent foundation for the multidisciplinary, problem-based approach we take to research and our educational programmes, an approach which sets us apart from other institutions.
In keeping with our Healthy Living motto, we have set four primary themes that offer us opportunities to take an innovative approach to our core activities:
- Lifestyle & prevention (ensuring that people do not become patients)
- Smart technology (using technology to keep health care accessible and affordable and to prevent people from becoming hospital patients whenever possible)
- Personalized health (tailoring the entire health care chain to the patient’s’ individual situation)
- Operational excellence (keeping care accessible, improving quality and employee satisfaction, and staying financially healthy).
