48th ORAHS meeting

The Project

The ORAHS conference was founded in 1975 with the idea of providing a network for researchers involved in the application of systematic and quantitative analysis to support planning and management in the health services sector.

After 2 years of mandatory stop, this year’s was the 48th edition, organized at the University of Bergamo. Why this university in particular? Because Bergamo is home to Italy’s first master’s degree program in Health Care Engineering and Management, which merges biomedical engineering, management engineering and health care optimization.

The entire conference was held at the wonderful St. Augustine’s building, which houses the historic Great Hall frescoed with paintings from the 1300s. Guests were also entertained with social and playful events. From the welcome cocktail, to the social boat trip on Lake Como to the Gala Dinner at Villa Maliana.
