As we are all aware, there has been an drastic increase in health expenses throughout the world. Given the financial constraints and rising costs facing many healthcare organizations are facing nowadays, many of them have to go through institutional changes that will improve their performance, develop their skills and their strengthen behavior. Changes should be aimed at both the material and clinical performance. Increasing costs, technological developments and regulations have made changes mandatory in various health institutions. Existing in the industry within these conditions has become increasingly challenging. Now medical organizations should be conducting financial management in the most effective way, closely monitoring the practices that are frequently changing in the legislation. Like Donald Berwick expressed 20% and 30% of expenses are a waste, and the main cause of it being a waste is patients being treated unnecessarily, in the absence of sufficient co-ordination in the provision of services, and the fact that administrative systems have expensive and complicated structure in service delivery, it is observed as complexity of the rules and fraud.
Therefore, in parallel with global trends in Türkiye, it is possible that decision-making actors have recently emphasized value-based paying methods that are often focused on preventing quality and waste in health care and even indicate their superiority over other paying methods, that in time we are likely to see examples of value-based payments in our country. However, how ready is the health system, healthcare providers and those who pay for health care for this type of payment method? Do we know how to evaluate the outcomes of certain health conditions ? How will we take advantage of the already existing quality and accreditation systems that are the heart of value-based payment systems? How ready are we? How suitable is our Healthcare system in relations to following up with patients after the patients are cared for? Are we aware of the new systems that need to be developed, what kind of human resources are required , and whether we have the type of human resources needed ?Are our electronic health record systems suitable to meet the requirements of this payment method, and how ready are we to share these records with doctors, institutions, or with the community?
In fact, those who are investigating the future-futurists, are conducting many studies to evaluate the impact of these developments in the field of digitalization and health, which entered every stage of our lives, especially during the pandemic period. And very comprehensive discussions are being conducted about how these developments will affect the advanced health systems. And improvements are being done in the legislation. However, how quickly the health systems that have developed as a result of historical and cultural processes in the past will act to keep up with these new developments? How ready are our academics and policy makers who are interested in health policies for this issue while these developing new systems force us to new legislation and financing models? In order for us to answer these kind of questions, it is necessary to promote the simple, feasible and cost-effective efforts that we briefly outlined above.
For this reason the main theme for the 13th International Congress on Healthcare and Hospital Management will be “MODERN APPROACHES IN HEALTH FINANCING AND INNOVATIONS IN THE LEGISLATION”
In recent years, due to the pandemic that lasted more than two years, the restructuring of health services, legislation implemented in line with the digitalization of health and changes implemented central, global, regional and at institutional levels have led to the need to discuss the certain issue. Therefore, in the duration of three days the interventions in practice in different health systems and the effects of these interventions on the financing of health institutions will comparatively be brought forward. Contemporary Approaches to Health Financing and Innovations in the Legislation will be examined.
During the duration of the Congress, in relation to the main theme " Modern Approaches in Health Financing and Innovations in Legislation" primarily low-cost, high-quality care, how to obtain health insurance, health financing and health tourism laws and regulations will be discussed. However, "Modern Approaches in Health Financing and Success of Health Financing Laws, Regulations and Care Outcomes" are just a few of them.Hence the congress topics below are planned in relation to the theme.
