Tytuł: Care coordination gaining momentum in Germany

Opublikowane: Health Policy Monitor, July 2007

Streszczenie: Because of strong segmentation of the different health care sector and resulting problems, the German administration introduced forms of integrated care into the system through the Health Care Reform Act 2000 and the Statutory Health Insurance Modernization Act 2004. Since then, IC in Germany has gained momentum. The new reform of 2007 (SHI-CSA), has broadened the possibilities of IC while start-up financing for integrated care contracts has been extended until the end of 2008
