EvaluationCosts and Benefits

The »Gesundes Kinzigtal GmbH« has signed a community-based contract for integrated care IV according to §140 SGB V for the Kinzigtal region with the AOK Baden-Württemberg as well as the LKK Baden-Württemberg. The IV contract »Healthy Kinzigtal« is not only characterised by the population reference and a long term of nine years, but also by extensive accompanying research.

The Evaluation modul had carried out by PMV research group on basis of SHI claims data has the aim to identify under-, over- and missupply in order to evaluate whether the concept of savings contracting, on which the IV contract is based, leads to unintended risk selections and, on the other hand, to check whether the health-related objectives of the project are being achieved. 

The project included the beginning of the integrated care as well as the further process.
