SUPERVISOR:

Prof. Haim Reuveni, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

Racheli Magnezi, PhD is the manager of the Public Health and Health Systems Management Program in the Management Department at Bar Ilan University in Ramat Gan, Israel. Dr. Magnezi earned a BA in Business Administration from the College of Management, and a Masters in Business Administration from the School of Business Administration at Bar Ilan University. She has also taken continuing education courses in Health Systems Management at the Faculty of Management at Tel Aviv University. Dr. Magnezi received her PhD from Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Beer Sheva, Israel.

Dr. Magnezi’s PhD thesis involved the relationship between consumption, financial cost and quality of health services for career soldiers. Dr. Magnezi has published scientific articles in leading national and international journals, including Health PolicyAmerican Journal of Managed CarePlos One and the Journal of Medical Internet Research.

Dr. Magnezi edited "The Economic and Social Aspects of the Health System in Israel" (in collaboration with Prof. Gabi Bin Nun). This book is used as instructional material in all Health Systems Management Programs in Israel. In addition, she was actively involved in shaping health policy of the IDF Medical Corps for many years, primarily in outsourcing arrangements with the Health Care Funds. Dr. Magnezi’s publications on this topic led to practical and conceptual changes in the provision of medical services to soldiers. This work received an Award of Excellence from the Director of the Ministry of Health. Dr. Magnezi's essay on the subject was published in the leading journal in its field.

In recent years, Dr. Magnezi’s research has focused on the areas of detecting and treating depression in the community, and on the effect of depression and other chronic diseases on employment, and their influence on employee productivity. Dr. Magnezi has managed several joint research projects with the National Healthcare Funds in Israel that optimize the ability to identify patients with depression and treat them in the community. Dr. Magnezi is also a leading partner in a research group that is studying the association between depression, taking antidepressants and traffic accidents. Future research is planned which will examine the relationship between traffic accidents and other ailments. Additionally, Dr. Magnezi is investigating postpartum depression. Her pilot study examining this issue, the first ever, was among Bedouin women. A paper investigating postpartum depression among ultra-orthodox women has been submitted for publication. Last year, in collaboration with researchers, Dr. Magnezi investigated postpartum depression from the aspects of health services utilization.

With the integration of social health networks and the health care system, Dr. Magnezi has presented several studies on the impact of the Internet and social networks on the chronically ill, with an emphasis on patients’ personal responsibility for their health care, to improve quality of life and satisfaction. These studies have been published in leading journals.

In summary, Dr. Magnezi’s research focuses on developing and promoting health policy, primarily from the perspectives of economics, utilization of health services and organizational impacts.
