Evidence-based Insurance Medicine


A new field of applied research

Insurance medicine is a young field in applied research that interfaces with preventive, clinical, rehabilitative medicine, as well as public health. Research findings from interdisciplinary collaborations, both national and international, support decisions for individuals, populations, and systems. To this end, EbIM develops and evaluates new methods, tools, and interventions to be used in insurance medicine practice. It promotes the professionalization of insurance medicine through undergraduate, postgraduate, and continuous education activities.
