Improving Patient Outcomes

Due to increasing cost pressure in the healthcare sector, established remuneration models for healthcare services are in transition around the world. Fees for performance and value-based systems are increasingly replacing fees for service. Major players - including Medicare and Medicaid in the U.S., the National Health Service in the U.K., the National Health Care Institute in the Netherlands, and several leading European university hospitals - have all made great strides in this area. In Germany, the proposed Hospital Restructuring Act aims for a stronger correlation between remuneration and quality of treatment. In newly industrialized countries, where patients pay a large share of the treatment costs out of their own pockets, the quality of treatment plays a decisive role in choosing a hospital (in addition to price and access to care).

Hospital managers around the world face the challenge of improving patients' overall outcomes - and doing so cost effectively. Further, outcomes can be impacted by many factors, including overall patient health, safety, comfort, and satisfaction.
