Gesundheitsökonomische Überlegungen werden oft als unvereinbar mit pädiatrischem Handeln angesehen - können wir uns diese Haltung noch 'leisten'? Die aktuellen Probleme drängen auf eine Lösung: Die Zahl der Kinder geht immer weiter zurück, die Kinder wachsen in eine wenig kinderfreundliche Umwelt hinein und sind vielfachen Belastungen durch z.B. Umwelt, Verkehr oder falsche Ernährungs- und Bewegungsmuster ausgeSetzt. PISA fördert weitere Defizite zutage, die auf bildungspolitische, soziale und nicht zuletzt auch psychische Missstände hinweisen. Eine systematische examine, die konkrete Lösungsansätze benennt und auch deren Wirtschaftlichkeit, Effizienz und Qualität in den Blick nimmt, fehlte bisher. Dieses Buch leistet einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Beseitigung dieses Defizits: Nach einer Einführung in die Grundlagen und Bewertungsformen wird die Gesundheitsökonomie in der Pädiatrie im internationalen Vergleich dargestellt. Fragen der Versorgungsstruktur, wie z.B. Verzahnung von Kinder-, Jugend- und Erwachsenenmedizin, Case und ailment administration, Kompetenzzentren und Telemedizin werden eingehend untersucht. Relevante Krankheitsbilder wie z.B. Diabetes und bronchial asthma werden gesondert in den Blick genommen. Auch Fragen der Forschung (Pharmakologie) sowie ethische Aspekte kommen zum Tragen. Damit gibt das Buch einen umfassenden Einblick in die Leistungsfähigkeit gesundheitsökonomischer Forschung und deren state-of-the-art in der deutschsprachigen Pädiatrie. Es richtet sich an Gesundheitsökonomen, Pädiater, Institutionen wie Krankenhausverwaltungen und Krankenkassen sowie an alle, die an einer aktuellen Übersicht zum Thema und an praktikablen Lösungswegen für dieses zunehmend wichtige Aufgabengebiet interessiert sind.
