Drastic system change in the German hospital landscape: The introduction of the lump-sum payment until 2009 shifts the responsibility for the costs to the hospital owners. This puts the German hospitals before the most difficult challenge of the post-war period: In addition to the quality of medical care, the economic efficiency of the clinic operation is a central factor.
The investment funds of the state are scarce. The development of private sources of money is of immense importance. It depends crucially on credit rating and evaluation. This book helps clinicians and hospitals to prepare for the best possible source of capital. Experts from science and practice present concepts, criteria and standards for credit assessment in the health care sector. They offer promising solutions, as clinics, clinic associations and other medical institutions can create optimal conditions for financing by financial institutions giving money and other private investors.
