Indicators and Trends in Health and Health Care: Introduction

Part of the Health Systems Research book series (HEALTH)


The papers contained in this book originate from two conferences, held in Munich on July 19, 1984, whose subjects were “Indicator-Based Reporting Systems” and “Long-Term Trend Indicators and Models”. These conferences were autonomous parts of the “Third International Conference on System Science in Health Care”; they were organized by the MEDIS Institute of Medical Informatics and Health Services Research of the GSF Research Centre, and were sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Research and Technology. Their purpose was to discuss the priority and relevance of, and to prepare terms of reference for, research to be undertaken and promoted in the Federal Republic of Germany on trends and indicators of health and health care. It is believed, though, that the revised papers (the last was received end of 1985) which make up this book may be of interest for a wider audience.
