Abstract

From 2004 on German hospitals will face a changed environment and must meet new requirements as the payment system will then be based on DRGs (Diagnosis Related Groups). Hospitals will have to reorganise their internal structures and processes to make sure that the case-based lump sums will cover the costs of the respective treatments. To evaluate the reorganisation projects, a criteria catalogue based on hospitals’ requirements is necessary. This article aims at proposing such a catalogue along with a process for the assessment of restructuring measures. This qualitative view is supplemented by a quantitative assessment of restructuring measures.
