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.
