Prospective payment for inpatient psychiatric care.
Monitor, April 2010|
The 2009 Hospital Financing Reform Act
(KHRG) mandated the German self-governing bodies to develop a
prospective payment system (PPS) for psychiatric and psychosomatic
facilities. The process of developing the system mirrors the
introduction of DRGs for other hospitals prior 2004. However, the
future psychiatric PPS will be based on per diem payments adjusted for
patient characteristics and procedures in order to introduce
performance incentives to this part of the German hospital sector.
