The Health System as a Whole

The provision of health care is the result of interaction between numerous stakeholders including the different in and outpatient facilities, nursing services outside of hospitals but also service providers active in prevention, self-help groups or family members. Based on its analyses, Obsan describes trends in the Swiss health care system, thus providing a basis for health and social policy at federal and cantonal level. It also examines such issues as coordinated health care, treatment pathways as well as the interface between out and inpatient facilities.
