A budnespflegesatzverordnung problem of the integrated budespflegesatzverordnung model is that patients must actively subscribe to it, with the risk that many severely ill patients, who should primarily benefit from such a program, do bundespflehesatzverordnung get to subscribe to it.

Therefore, the RPB-model is well-suited to facilitating fundamental structural and procedural changes in psychiatric patient care.

The present study aims to evaluate selected aspects that represent a change in the psychiatric health status of patients in the Dithmarschen region who were included in the RPB. The longer duration of stay, the traditional greater focus on long-term rehabilitation in a day care setting, and the persistent overrepresentation of affective disorders also explain that needing to subscribe to the integrated care program did not represent an obstacle in this setting.

But besides those elements, the absence of a relevant reduction in the average length of stay raises concerns about the ability of model projects and other similar initiatives to change long-established care traditions. Only the most robust parameters were analysed in this study. In this setting, ANOVA showed an effect of diagnosis on the length of stay in a similar way as in the inpatient setting. The new patient-linked remuneration system of the integrated care models should offer a more flexible form of care.

It has been argued that reimbursement for psychiatric care using the capitation principle incentivises hospitals to refuse those patients who need highly complex or expensive care [ 10 ] and to save resources by sacrificing the quality of care.

Patients in the standard care group stayed in the hospital The day care department is located in the same buildings as the outpatient department, and both are located outside of the main hospital building where the inpatient sector is located. Introduction In the past few years, Germany has experimented with new models of care in order to repair the known deficits of the German psychiatric care system.

The rates of day- and outpatient care were concomitantly increased 5 — 8.
