Most integrated networks include a team-based approach, as well as an emphasis on patient participation. Commonwealth Fund–supported researchers evaluated three new integrated delivery networks in Germany, the Netherlands, and England. more to: Integrated Care Experiences and Outcomes in Germany, the Netherlands, and England [The COMMONWEALTH FUND, 8.9.2014]

Financial reforms could worsen German psychiatric care, [The Lancet, Volume 381, Issue 9865, Page 440, 09.02.2013]

09. February 2013

This year, Germany implements a new payment system for in-patient psychiatric care that psychiatrists fear will be detrimental to severely ill patients. Fabienne Hübener reports. “In recent years no other country has implemented such a comprehensive payment reform in psychiatric care as Germany”, emphasises Alexander Geissler, expert on health-care management at the Technical University of Berlin. But what health-care economists view with some pride has driven clinical psychiatrists to the barricades. Psychiatrists and the health insurance companies tried to come to an agreement on the structure of the new system, known as PEPP (Consolidated Payment System for Psychiatry and Psychosomatics). Yet in October, 2012, the negotiations collapsed. Subsequently, against the demands of the clinicians, the German Minister of Health went ahead and implemented the reform. more to: Financial reforms could worsen German psychiatric care, [The Lancet, Volume 381, Issue 9865, Page 440, 09.02.2013]

Europe-wide study reveals huge gulf in dental prices, [The Independent, 10.01.2008]

10. January 2008

Dental treatment in England is the most expensive in Europe, according to an unprecedented survey which is likely to fuel the exodus of patients seeking treatment abroad. The survey of nine European countries found the total cost of a standard filling ranged from €156 (£117) in England to €8 in Hungary. That total included the cost of x-rays, materials, drugs and overheads, as well as the dentist's time. more to: Europe-wide study reveals huge gulf in dental prices, [The Independent, 10.01.2008]
