“IGiB-StimMT” adapts inpatient and outpatient care capacities in accordance with the changing population structure in the central area of Templin. The project introduces relevant interdisciplinary and intersectoral structures.
Demographic change in Germany is characterized by rising mortality rates, declining birth rates and an aging society. Rural areas in particular are reporting less and less young people and ever more elderly people – a development that is also reflected medically in an increase in chronic illnesses and/or multiple illnesses. Since a significant shift in the population structure is also predicted for the central area of Templin, it is necessary to develop and implement new and needs-based care structures.
Considering the multi-layered nature of the project, the evaluation will be carried out on several levels. Based on a mixed-methods approach, the evaluation is conducted on two levels. On the one hand, a structure and process analysis is performed, on the other hand, a health economic evaluation of the project is carried out. Furthermore, accompanying research based on qualitative scientific methods will be conducted. This is to find out whether the complex intervention can adapt the care structures and processes in the central area of Templin to existing challenges in a needs-oriented approach.
The project was funded by the Innovation Fund for a total of four years with ca. 14.5 million euros.
