Half of Germany's doctors oppose DMPs (disease management programmes)

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Proposals by a number of Germany's regional doctors' associations (KVs) to boycott the health ministry's proposed disease management programmes (DMPs) will not only question the quality assurance of the programmes, but also prevent some of the regions from benefiting from the statutory health insurers' fund balancing mechanism, claims the companies' sickness fund, the BKK. The DMPs, two of which started on July 1, are aimed at providing optimal care to the chronically ill. They are seen as being beneficial to industry as the programmes will ensure that devices are used within the certain time frame for the diseases in question (see Clinica No 995, p 6).
