Summary of key aims

An increasing specialization and fragmentation of health care services makes integration and cross-linking of health care services one of the most important tasks of the future organization of health care services. In this field, the consideration of patient needs and patient careers across professional groups, organisational borders and financing systems is a also substantial challenge for research in medical sociology. The complexity of the field requires the development of equally complex scientific methods.
The programme is being continuously conducted since 1994 in different projects which aim both at theoretical development and practical implementation. In the most recent model project ?Patient-oriented integrated health care" (which was conducted in Vienna's 14. - 17. district between summer 2002 and December 2004), all relevant partners from intra- and extramural health care services, including patients and their relatives, cooperated in three cross-organisational project groups and one focus-group consisting of patients and relatives. The project aimed at optimising processes at cross-organisational interfaces in patient care.
