Accompanying evaluation of the structural change in hospital care caused by the governmental funding according to § 14 KHG
With the Hospital Structure Act (KHSG), which entered into force on 1 January 2016, existing overcapacity in the German hospital sector is addressed for the first time. One key element of the KHSG is a structural fund, which specifically provides incentives for the reduction of overcapacities in the hospital sector, the concentration of hospital sites as well as the conversion of hospitals into non-acute local facilities or other needed disciplines. The aim is to create a hospital structure that is prepared for the upcoming challenges in the health care sector. Whether the structural fund achieves this goal will be evaluated over a period of several years in this scientific study.
