[Perspectives] Reinhard Busse: leader in Germany’s health-system development

As head of the Department for Health Care Management at the Technical University of Berlin, Germany, Reinhard Busse enjoys a varied, interdisciplinary academic life. “I run a department of around 20 researchers, crossing disciplines including medicine, public health, business engineering, political science, and economics, a vast array of talent that is needed in the projects we run in the field of health systems performance”, he says. Busse’s analysis of Germany’s health-system characteristics and performance is detailed in the first paper of the Lancet Germany country Series.
