Welcome to IEMO
The Institute for Evidence-Based Medicine in Old Age | IEMO aims to improve the quality of healthcare for older people by substantiating it with evidence.
IEMO reaches its goals by initiating and coordinating clinical studies in which more representative older patients participate. Furthermore, IEMO innovates clinical studies in older patients by developing and using modern technologies (such as smartphones) and novel methodologies.
The Institute has ben initiated by a collaboration of all Univesity Medical Centers in The Netherlands, TNO and NIVEL.
IEMO is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Health, Wellfare and Sports and is being coordinated together with ZonMw. The Leiden University Medical Center acts as the coordinator on behalf of all partners.
