Transitions in Dutch health care institutions

What is it about?

This powerpoit explores the quality and financial performance of Dutch intramural health care real estate. The population of Europe is aging. More people are getting older and more elderly get a very high age. This results in a growing need for care.The increasing costs of health care results in political pressure. As a consequence, the Dutch government changed the care system into a regulated market system, with more market and less government influence, less building regulations, no funding of real estate but integrated prices of care including real estate, and substitution of intramural care by home care where possible. Health care organisations have to cope with financial pressure and need to earn money to buy or rent real estate by income from care activities. All these trends result in a need for better and more affordable health care buldings.
