Traduction en anglais : Impacts on medical technological progress in the german health care system.
The analysis emphasises the dependence of medical-technological progress on the zero fees for standard health services.
Technologies with an additional or total selfpayment are discriminated against by the patients and the physicians.
Besides, a tendency to apply medical maximum standards was discerned.
The enforcement of novel methods of diagnosis and therapy has been made substantially easier.
In contrast, there are scarcely any incentives to introduce costsaving technologies from the patient's point of view.
The fixed budgets of the Health Structure Act will exercise greater pressure on introducing cost-cutting innovations.
