DETERMINANTY ROZVOJA JEDNODŇOVEJ ZDRAVOTNEJ STAROSTLIVOSTI NA SLOVENSKU
Determinants of day health care development in Slovakia
Languages of publication
Day health care (DHC) has been used only for a decade in Slovakia. The usage of DHC is differently perceived by health insurance companies that radically reduce the financial resources. On the other hand, the usage of DHC is differently perceived by hospitals which are permanently indebted. The reduced payment for DHC performance in comparison with the payments for finished hospitalization aggravates the conditions of hospitals. The reason is improperly adjusted and economically demotivated system that causes the significant lagging behind the European average. In Slovakia no studies declare usage, determinants, riskiness, and utilisation barriers of the DHC in regions and price strategies of health insurance companies. The contribution presents research output focused on DHC development in order to increase an efficiency of healthcare system in Slovakia, and also presents the pilot study in this field.
