Social situation and hospitalisation due to chronic conditions
Obsan Report 11/2020
The population structure is altering but medicine is also subject to constant change. Many more treatments are today handled on an outpatient basis than was the case a few decades ago. The hospital landscape is also changing. Obsan documents this trend and analyses data on inpatient care in acute medicine, psychiatry, rehabilitative care and inpatient long-term care in Switzerland. To support hospital and nursing home planning, Obsan develops models which estimate future demand.
