Since 2011 PCSI has offered a Winter School focused on casemix-based funding systems and analytical methods. The 2011 and 2012 Winter Schools were held in Dublin, Ireland. In recognition that PCSI’s membership spans the globe and to provide members in Asia and the Pacific a better opportunity to attend, the 2013 School is being held in Sydney Australia and being hosted by the National Centre for Classification in Health at The University of Sydney.
The first Case Mix Summer School was hosted in Italy in 1998 and continued to be held there through 2005. Since then it has been hosted in France and in 2010 and 2011 it was hosted in Portugal. In future years, the School is expected to be hosted by different countries but the content will remain the same so that those attending continue to receive high quality information and instruction. Information to attend the next Summer School is included below.
PCS International is pleased to announce another edition of its Summer School so if you are interested in case mix and wish to have a broad perspective about its implementation and uses around the globe, then you won't want to miss this opportunity.
The faculty of the School will include some of the most recognized experts in the field of case mix from around the world. The program takes into account the experiences of different summer schools and executive programs in USA, Australia, Spain, UK, Italy and previous editions of PCSI Summer Schools.
The 2013 PCS International Case Mix Summer School is being held in Tallinn, Estonia from 10th-14th, June 2013.
