Challenges in Healthcare
Care should be efficient, affordable and of high quality. There are multiple demands that challenge this for years to come.
- Rising cost in care;
- More patients with chronic disease;
- Aging population.
As a healthcare professional you are expected to live up to these demands. You are expected to:
- Deliver high quality care.
- Cut waste and lower the costs.
- Keep up with a higher workload.
- Be transparent about quality and cost of care.
- Involve patients more closely so they get empowered.
How to handle this?
A lot of countries are undergoing major reforms in improving care coordination to tackle these demands in Healthcare. A few examples:
- The Netherlands: In 2007, the Dutch minister of health, introduced a bundled-payment approach for integrated chronic care.
- Australia: In 2011, a National Health Reform Agreement passed, to offer primary care providers funds to form Medicare Locals. By 2012, Australia has formed 61 Medicare Locals, with a mission to improve local care coordination and delivery of health services.
- Germany: Since 2000, Germany encourages bundled contracts to promote integrated, patient-centric care. In 2008, it had approved over 6000 bundled contracts for different diseases, from chronic back pain to mental illness.
