Abstract (German)

Das Projekt analysiert Anreize in den Finanzierungssystemen und Kostenstrukturen der psychiatrischen Versorgung. Für unterschiedliche Formen der Betreuung gelten unterschiedliche Finanzierungsregelungen, was beträchtliche Konsequenzen für Anreizwirkungen beim Umbau von Versorgungssystemen mit sich bringt.
