Health Care and EU integration

Specialist fields :
The impact of European integration on national healthcare systems
  
   Short Biography

Rita Baeten, master of social sciences, is a senior policy analyst at the OSE. Her research activities focus on the impact of European integration on national healthcare systems and on their social character. 

Her research topics include themes such as EU economic governance and health systems; patient mobility in the EU; healthcare services in the internal market; and EU-level co-operation in the field of healthcare.

She has been work leader for the OSE contribution to several projects financed by the European Commission under its Framework Programmes for Research. These include
ECAB (2010-2013), “Europe for patients" (2004-2007) and Re-Invest (2015-2018).

Rita Baeten advises the Belgian National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (NIHDI) on EU policy developments with a potential impact on healthcare in Belgium and coordinated the scientific preparation and follow-up of several international and ministerial conferences on EU integration and health systems.
