Personal information
Nom de famille: 

Isabelle Peytremann-Bridevaux is a full professor and head of the Health Care Evaluation Unit since August 2018. 

Her aim is to take up some of the challenges healthcare systems face today, including the rising prevalence and burden of chronic diseases, multimorbidity of the aging population, and the correlates thereof (e.g. care fragmentation, gaps in quality of care). These challenges need to be addressed within the context of patients’ increasing health expectations and needs, future shortages in the healthcare workforce, and rising healthcare costs. She is convinced that the development of structural and organizational innovations would improve the health and quality of care of the overall population, and more specifically of chronic patients, at affordable costs.

Using both quantitative and qualitative data, as well as mixed methods, her empirical and pragmatic research topics include, among others:

  • Development, implementation and evaluation of complex interventions such as integrated care initiatives and new models of care for patients with chronic diseases (COPD; diabetes; cancer)
  • Patients’ reported outcomes and care experiences measures (PROMs and PREMs)
  • Patients’ and healthcare stakeholders’ needs and opinions
  • Interprofessional collaboration outside hospitals
  • Knowledge translation (including development of guidelines and conducting of systematic reviews)

Isabelle Peytremann-Bridevaux is also member of Cochrane Switzerland and has been actively involved in the National Association for Quality (ANQ) as member of the Patient Satisfaction Quality Committee for several years. Since January 2017, the ESOPE group she is leading has been designated responsible of the analyses and reports of all Swiss national patient satisfaction surveys (acute somatic, rehabilitation and psychiatric care). In December 2017, she has been elected to be part of the central committee of the Swiss Pulmonary League. Additionally, she collaborates regularly with cantonal and federal institutions, providing her an excellent knowledge of the Swiss healthcare system.

Prof. Isabelle Peytremann-Bridevaux is a medical doctor (University of Geneva, Switzerland, 1994), board certified in internal medicine (2001) and in prevention-public health (2006); she holds a Master’s degree in Public Health from the University of Washington/USA (Department of Health Services Research; 2003) and a Doctorate in Sciences from Erasmus University Rotterdam/NL (2005). She has authored 60+ peer-reviewed publications, supervises Master and Ph.D. students from the University of Lausanne, and teaches at pre and postgraduate level.
