Submitted by mmarquez on Mon, 08/31/2020 - 15:21

Covid-10 Health System Response Monitor (15.06.2020) In consideration of a potential second wave of COVID-19, all countries in Europe will have to find solutions to adequately reimburse hospitals for their additional resource needs related to the care for COVID-19 patients, e.g. by adjusting DRG-based payments, increasing per diem rates, or adding additional fees to FFS system. In addition, given the risk of future pandemics, processes need to be put in place to rapidly adjust payment systems to meet new challenges where needed.
