Board of directors
Unique benchmark model of Switzerland’s symedric Inc. to overcome the mechansims of market failure (asymetric information) in health care, health care financing and other asymetric markets in order to achieve managed competiton.
We evaluate and support the necessary steps towards the realisation of defined healthcare financing and policy goals. Our experience includes healthcare policy consulting in various countries such as Switzerland, Germany and Kazakhstan. One of our longtime projects is the technical and economic support of the SwissDRG AG. In the last years the Swiss public health system has changed significantly in the field of performance reimbursement using DRGs (diagnosis related groups). There are several options for the evolution towards a state of the art tariff system for healthcare provider payment. The extensive know-how that eonum possesses in the field of application and development of inpatient tariffs in the health care sector can be put to good use at various locations.
Linking Hospital Payment and Hospital Financing to Quality
Financial incentives are influential motivators for behavior change. For this reason symedric Inc. designed a model which takes into account several quality indicators at the hospital level. These quality indicators derive from the DRG system (rate of complications) as well as validated national programmes, e.g. rehospitalization, wound infection, patient safety, participation in registers and peer reviews (depending on the availability of data). Cost-variations caused by poor quality, adjusted for casemix, age, and additional variables of patient complexity are identified. With the proposed model symedric Inc. is able to identify hospitals which are confronted with higher costs due to inadequate quality and quantify the relevant volume.
