Financial Incentives to Stimulate Integration of Care in Europe with Dr Apostolos Tsiachristas


Apart from organisational and professional barriers, integration of services within and between sectors is often hampered by financial disincentives, budgetary restrictions or incompatible funding structures. This holds true for both tax-based and insurance-based systems, even though to varying degrees. Dr Apostolos Tsaichristas will describe and explain the effects different financial instruments have on (dis)integration of services, and introduce examples of how integrated funding systems may work in practice.
