Traduction en anglais : Evaluation of the impact of health care legislation on ambulatory medical care based on patient contacts.
A network of about 100 physicians (general practitioners, internists) has been introduced in Lower Saxony, Germany.
The participating physicians report on a sample of their patient contacts involving frequent complaints (e. g. vertigo, leg problems, pain due to rheumatic conditions, and gastrointestinal disturbances).
The project combines individual, problem-specific patient monitoring with the physicians'estimation of both the conditions under which they conduct their practice and the state of the regional health care system.
A standardized questionnaire records sociodemographic variables and major reasons for the patients'visit.
It also records data about diagnoses, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies and changes in therapy.
