Download Routinedaten in der Psychiatrie: Sektorenubergreifende by Wolfgang Gaebel, Hermann Spießl, Thomas Becker PDF

By Wolfgang Gaebel, Hermann Spießl, Thomas Becker

Mit wachsender Komplexit?t des Hilfesystems zur Versorgung psychisch kranker Menschen gewinnt die Erfassung gesundheitsbezogener Daten zunehmend an Bedeutung. Die fehlende Einheitlichkeit der Datenerhebung in Bezug auf Methode und Zweck ist problematisch: Sie f?rdert die Entstehung aufw?ndig erstellter, aber ungenutzter Datensammlungen; andererseits besteht das Risiko, dass methodisch inad?quat ausgewertete oder vorschnell interpretierte Daten zur ?konomischen Steuerung verwendet werden. Um die Versorgungsforschung und Qualit?tssicherung voranzubringen, hat die DGPPN in ihrem Hauptstadtsymposium im Juni 2008 gemeinsam mit Vertretern der beteiligten Versorgungsinstitutionen die Fragen einer sektoren?bergreifenden psychiatrischen Routinedokumentation aus verschiedenen Perspektiven diskutiert. Dabei sind Gedanken zum Umgang mit Routinedaten entstanden, die die Versorgung psychisch kranker Menschen in Deutschland abbilden, relevante Ver?nderungen erfassen und eine valide Datengrundlage in der Qualit?tssicherung, der gesundheits?konomischen und -politischen Diskussion liefern k?nnen.
