Identifying best practices for care-dependent elderly by benchmarking costs and outcomes of community care – iBenC – 10 January 2014

“Report D6.1: Review on the structure of community care of the six participating countries and their benchmarking practices Van Eenoo, L.; Declercq, A.; Van der Roest, H.; Van Hout, H. – on behalf of the IBenC consortium

The overall aim of IBenC project is to identify best practices in community care delivery for care dependent community dwelling elderly people by benchmarking the cost-effectiveness of community care delivery systems across Europe. To understand why some organisations and health care systems provide better quality of care than others, studying the micro (client), meso (organisation) and macro (policy) levels is equally important. This report focuses on the macro level of care delivery and reviews and compares the context, regulations and conditions for community care system delivery to care dependent elderly in countries that participate in IBenC (Belgium, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Italy and the Netherlands).”
