Redefining German Health Care

Abstract

Germany has an extensive provider system with expertise in every medical field and with a density of providers among the highest of any country. Unlike many other countries, there is a strict separation among inpatient care provided by hospitals, outpatient care provided in physician’s offices, and rehabilitative care provided by separate institutions. Significant structural reform will be needed to transform German providers into a value-based delivery system.
