Financing long-term care systems, particularly for optimised care transition Project leaders: Dr. Christoph Sowada, Dr. Ewa Kocot Institute of Public Health, Faculty of Health Sciences, Jagiellonian University
Objective of the project: This research project aims to assess the coherence and efficiency of the organisation and financing of long-term care in a selection of European countries, with special attention to the integration of different care types, levels and settings and optimising the patient transition between different care settings. The result of this project will be a new knowledge concerning alternative solutions for organising and financing at the system level, assessment tools/criteria of them, as well as identification of best practices for
Accessible new knowledge concerning alternative solutions for organising and financing at the system level
Assessment tools/criteria for evaluation of economic, financial and organisational solutions in long-term care and transitional care systems (based on existing assessment tools, e.g., WHO, European Consumer Index, ANCIEN project)
Identification of best practices for organising and financing long-term care in the EU.

Project update February 2020: Together with Maastricht University, a research proposal has already been developed and the areas that they would like to focus on in the next 3 years have been identified. Evidence on organizational and financial aspects of care transition is scant and inconclusive. Estera’s first article focuses on identification of system level financial and organizational aspects that have an impact on care transitions. In order to do so, she is performing a systematic literature review together with her PhD advisors. They hope to develop a model that would systematize available knowledge on the financial and organizational aspects that have an impact on care transition.
