2 What is the right kind of care today? Demographic situation ti... More people getting older Lifestyle-related diseases proceed Many diseases are to some extent associated e.g. comorbidity of depression and diabetes... Less people are accepting traditional medical authoritarian style but call for participation p in decisions

3 New economic consideration for payors = sickness funds / health insurances In Germany health policy makers of all parties believe in competition as incentive for creating innovation and to keep costs down competition between sickness funds as well as between providers Sickness funds cover about 90% of the population = regulated market / 10% are covered by health insurance plans = private market The sickness funds in the regulated market have the same premium (this goes to a national agency and is distributed to the funds after a risk adjusted scheme that uses morbidity trees to develop a fair payment to the funds) but vary whether they have to ask for a separately paid surplus premium

4 New economic consideration for payors = sickness funds / health insurances Sickness funds compete about surplus premiums, services and offers to the patients and about selection (healthy vs sick) They have to ask: What are the strongest interventions in increasing health status and keeping costs down? Who is offering a comprehensive and sustainable solution serving my population? With what kind of reimbursement scheme do I attract the right spirit... not too much interventions ti but not too few as well... tackling the right people... using the newest technology but with as few costs as possible?

5 Integrated Care in Germany Discussioni of Managed Care in the US / first projects / development of physician networks 2000 German Health Care Reform Act introducing Integrated Care as selective contracting possibilities to sickness funds and providers or groups of p. or companies connected with providers 2004 New law allowing for start-up-financing until end of Pharmaeutical Companies may contract with sickness funds as well

6 The future of health care provision / German HC Advisory Board

7 Managed volume / Market of Integrated Care in Germany today Around 12 billion managed volume in Integrated Care contracts t and other Selective Contracts * * * 1 billion paid by sickness funds to IHO directly * * Quelle: Eigene Berechnungen von OptiMedis auf der Basis der KV45-Daten der GKV, eigene Schätzungen bzgl. HzV-Verträge

8 Health Market in the Future: Important Players: Integrated Health Care Systems Trad. way: The health care system is characterized by fragmented provision of care from different sectors, each under different economic constraints, and not oriented towards patient benefit but towards the provider s economic interest. This results in multiple issues regarding information and care management, leading to redundant services and interventions with no economic incentive for providers for efficient management of the care delivery process. Phys Hosp Reha. Nursing Prescr. The new way: Reengineering the chain of care through integrated health care systems, which contract with sickness funds and also with care providers. Contractor/Network management company A Contr./NMC B Contr./NMC C

9 The solution: Population-based Integrated Care sharing the health gain Oi Origins i of the concept: Managed Care in US and Switzerland...
