Gesundheitswirtschaft Österreich: Ein by Czypionka,Schnabl,Sigl,Warmuth,Zucker

By Czypionka,Schnabl,Sigl,Warmuth,Zucker

In der gesundheitspolitischen Debatte werden die Gesundheit und das Gesundheitswesen vielfach mit den Kosten für die Gesellschaft in Verbindung gebracht und gleichsam als challenge für das Gemeinwesen gesehen. Dies folgt wohl vor allem daraus, dass in den europäischen Gesundheitssystemen in erster Linie der Staat für die Finanzierung von Gesundheitsleistungen verantwortlich zeichnet. Das Gesundheitsbedürfnis der Menschen ist jedoch ein wesentlicher Wirtschaftsfaktor, mit entsprechenden Auswirkungen auf Produktion, Wertschöpfung, Beschäftigung und öffentliche Einnahmen. Die Erstellung eines eigenen – ins Input-Output-System eingebundenen – Satellitenkontos für den Bereich Gesundheit ermöglicht detaillierte Angaben über die Güterstrom- und Finanzierungsverflechtungen sowie eine Darstellung der wirtschaftlichen Effekte. Das Satellitenkonto folgt dem Ziel, durch eine Extrahierung der relevanten Teilmärkte und Verdichtung dieser Informationen in einem „separaten“ Konto, den gesundheitsrelevanten Wirtschaftsteil in eine praktikable shape zu gießen. Um dabei die Vergleichbarkeit mit dem deutschen Gesundheitssatellitenkonto zu wahren, verwenden die Autoren die dort entwickelte Systematik, nehmen aber landesspezifische Anpassungen für Österreich vor, die letztlich auch in der unterschiedlichen Datenlage begründet sind.

By Silke Waegener

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Medizin - Gesundheitswesen, Public overall healthiness, notice: 1,5, Deutsche Hochschule für Prävention und Gesundheitsmanagement GmbH, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Mit der Luxemburger Deklaration wurde 1997 (Aktualisierung 2007) von der Europäischen Union eine Erklärung zur Betrieblichen Gesundheitsförderung (BGF) verfasst und somit eine einheitliche Vorstellung niedergeschrieben, welche Kriterien Gesundheit im Betrieb ausmachen. Dies führt dazu, dass immer mehr Anbieter – unter anderem die Krankenkassen – versuchen, Unternehmen dahingehend zu motivieren, in BGF bzw. Betriebliches Gesundheitsmanagement (BGM) zu investieren. Als Verstärker für ihre Bemühungen setzen sie häufig auf so genannte Best-Practice-Konzepte.

„Best-Practice-Preise“ - das hört sich nach BGM-Konzepten auf höchstem Niveau an. Glaubt guy jedoch Goldgruber (2012), so „zeigt ein schlichter Blick in die Praxis, dass die Realisierung der BGF in ihrer Idealform nicht weniger aber auch nicht mehr als ein visionäres Ziel zu bleiben scheint“. Daraus ableitend stellen sich nun die Fragen: Wie intestine – und vor allem – wie nachhaltig sind diese Konzepte wirklich? Kennen diese Unternehmen die Luxemburger Deklaration überhaupt? Inwiefern erfüllen sie die (Mindest-)Ansprüche, die in der „Luxemburger Deklaration“ an ein BGM gestellt werden? Haben diese Praxisbeispiele wirklich einen richtungsweisenden Charakter und können anderen Unternehmen als Vorbild dienen? Diese Fragestellungen sollen in dieser Master-Thesis genauer untersucht werden. In dieser Arbeit sollen die ausgewählten Best-Practice-Unternehmen auf Einhaltung der Kriterien der Luxemburger Deklaration überprüft werden.
