Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

http://pnpm.univie.ac.at/minormajor-pnpm/

This module focuses on the important topic of financing of health care systems and their underlying incentives. A main focus is given on the budgeting for health care institutions and projects. Quantitative methods used are for example optimization models, statistical tests, or agency theory. We examine selected problems of the hospital financing systems and especially of the Austrian performance-oriented reimbursement system (Leistungsorientierte Krankenhausfinanzierung - LKF-System). In addition, we intensively compare international health care systems including financing and challenges. Finally, we undertake a practical excursion to a health institution or the Gesundheitspolitisches Forum.

In addition, external practitioners and scientists from all over the world are invited (Dr. Claudia Wild: Health Technology Assessment, Vienna, Prof. Dr. Sally Brailsford: University of Southampton, Prof. Stef-fen Flessa: University of Heidelberg, Prof. Ruth Davies: University of Warwick, Prof. Dr. Liam O'Neill: Cornell University, Mag.
