About SiRM

Does your organisation operate in a regulated market, such as healthcare, network sectors or culture? And do you consider sharpening your strategy? Or are you developing new policy? SiRM can offer you valuable assistance. SiRM focuses on delivering thoroughly substantiated advice, which enables managers and policy makers to formulate their strategy or develop new policies.

Markets in which we operate

SiRM has been carrying out projects in regulated markets for over ten years.

Healthcare. The majority of our clients are active in healthcare, such as healthcare providers, healthcare insurers, municipalities, regulators, industry federation and patient advocacy organisations.

Utilities and public housing. We also work for clients in other regulated markets, such as electricity, gas, water and district heating networks, and public housing.

Culture. We provide economic advice for the cultural sector including museums, performing arts and visual arts.

Our approach

SiRM advises clients based on extensive sector knowledge and expertise on, for example, healthcare funding or competition regulation. Our advice is based on different types of analysis, which we perform for you individually or in combination. We have extensive experience with quantitative, economic and conceptual analyses.

We advise individual clients and we also work on behalf of multiple parties at the same time. We support them in composing a jointly supported strategy or policy. We immerse ourselves in the interests of each of them and together we look for the shared interest. In addition to facilitating and structuring the discussion between the parties, we contribute to the discussion and put forward our own ideas, for our clients' consideration.

We want our strategic advice to have a real impact. That is why we also support clients with implementation. Clients implement themselves. We help with structuring, monitoring and boosting the implementation.

Results of our work

SiRM investigates and advises. We present the results of our findings in a report, presentation or a different format for knowledge transfer. We always strive to provide our clients and other parties involved with advice that enables them to make decisions. Decisions that serve to better align the regulated market with the needs and wishes of citizens.

The results of our work are often publicly available, but we can also publish exclusively for our client. Our publicly accessible reports and presentations can be found under 'Publications'. Here you will also find journal articles written by SiRM’s partners and consultants. The topics addressed in our publications reveal our primary areas of knowledge and experience, such as healthcare financing, contracting and payment and competition and regulation.

Please note that most of our publications are only available in Dutch. A few of them are also published in English or have English summaries. If you want to know more about a specific report or subject, please contact Jan-Peter Heida.
