Our board of directors

Our board of directors (hereinafter, the “Board”), consists of representatives of public bodies active in healthcare, patient associations and health insurance. The composition is balanced and it plays a key role in scrutinising our neutrality and safeguarding our independence. 

At each Board meeting new reports are presented. The scientific content is in principle not subject to modification, except on the basis of quantifiable methodological arguments. The political recommendations, based upon the scientific work, are discussed, sometimes nuanced, and approved by a simple majority, when voting turns out to be necessary.

Finally, KCE is legally obliged to publish all of its results within one month of their approval by the Board, which is an additional guarantee for our transparency.
