European Health Care Foundation

Buildings at the embankment of Zurich - SwitzerlandThe European Health Care Foundation – founded in 2005 – is based in Zurich, Switzerland. We are a nonprofit organization and we put our focus on research and educational concepts for people suffering from chronic diseases.

Research

Our research is closely linked to the Sigmund Freud University in Vienna, where the President Prof. Dr. Dorothee Gänshirt and the Vice President Prof. Dr. Dr. Fred Harms are leading the Institute of Health Care Management and Health Care Communication.

Patient Education

We developed a large patient portal (Patientenfuchs.de) for patients suffering from diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure,asthma and COPD. Here patients receive extensive education and support concerning their disease and the appropriate self management skills.

Qualification of Patient Coaches

The European Health Care Foundation offers an E-learning platform for health care professionals who want to qualify as patient self-management coaches. The educational concept has been tested in two large studies and it proved to significantly improve the patients self management skills as well as their clinically relevant parameters.
