English abstract:
Modeling and simulation in international health care
resource planning and future strategy testing has growing
impact and importance. Within the CEPHOS-Link FP7
project a dynamic agent-based model is integrated for
Austria, Slovenia and the Veneto region of Italy for
answering questions defined in PICO structure for
psychiatric disease hospitalization and re-hospitalization
under special constraints using big national claims
databases combined by using a well-defined data pooling
process. The basis for the dynamic simulation process is
a generic population concept (GEPOC) developed within
the DEXHELPP consortia project in Austria and
parameterized and calibrated using EUROSTAT and
national statistics databases. Regional concepts are
simulated based on NUTS-3 distance of service
information integrated by driving time calculations. All
results are gathered on a personal level and depicted and
described on age gender groups added by costinformation.
