Marie Henriette Madsen works with surveys and evaluations of current interventions that affect management and organisation in the health service. Quality development and control is an area of special interest in her work, and she is interested in, for instance, the new organizational roles that arise when the extent and importance of quality work increase, and in how specific interventions concerning quality development and control affect organisations and professions. In recent years, she has investigated how a new management ideal – value-based management – has been implemented in Danish hospitals.
Marie Henriette Madsen works with qualitative methods, including interviews and observation. Moreover, she is often involved in surveys in which other methodical approaches are used, and she has extensive experience of carrying out analysis involving both qualitative and quantitative methods.
Marie Henriette Madsen obtained an MSc in Public Health at the University of Copenhagen in 2005. Right after this, she started working as a project manager in the Danish Institute for Health Services Research, and she has worked with analysis and research on the health service since then, first in KORA, now VIVE. In the period 2012-2015, Marie Henriette Madsen took a PhD at the Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School.
