Integrated health care in the district of Nordfriesland

Bahnstrecke durch Nordfriesland am Wasser

The health care in Nordfriesland stands in the future - as well as in other rural regions – in front of special challenges:

In the coming years, a large proportion of practicing doctors will give up their practice because of the age.

  • The replacement of vacant doctor's practices is becoming increasingly difficult.
  • Doctors settle down preferably in major cities and not in rural areas.
  • The population is getting older and older in the course of the demographic change and thus requires more medical care.

How can you meet these challenges and contribute to the retention of the community-based health care? Answering these questions is not easy. Therefore, the health department of Nordfriesland has awarded the contract "Development of conceptual proposals for a future-proof integrated medical care in Nordfriesland" to DSN. The task was to develop an implementation-oriented concept together with the regional health stakeholders.

First DSN has analysed the initial situation, in particular the age structure of the medical fraternity in Nordfriesland according to the different departments. In a year-long process, DSN has worked together with representatives of various sectors to compile regional project proposals. An the end there were ten concrete proposals in the fields of action

  • Future-proof supply of medical and nursing staff and
  • Relieving support functions for service providers (communication, bureaucracy, financing).

They builded the basis for further action in the region. The event "Prospective for an integrated supply in Nordfriesland" on 3rd of May 2010 in Husum, Germany,  was the start of the concrete implementation of the proposals.
