The Directorate is of the opinion that it is necessary to ensure that

the main actors in the health service have a more uniform under­

standing and interpretation of the objectives and areas of applica­

tion of the system. The survey revealed that there is too much

variation in people’s understanding of the funding model.

Both the Directorate and the regional health authorities have an

independent responsibility for improving information and communi­

cation to the various different parts of the health administration and

the executive services, to promote a more accurate understanding of

the workings of activity-based funding and the DRG system. It will be

necessary to target a more concerted effort in this area.

The Directorate inds that collaboration and measures in this

area could serve to create greater legitimacy and support on all

management levels in the sector. There is much evidence to sug­

gest that the future success of the activity-based funding scheme

depends on much better clariication of the way the model works.

The Directorate would also like to state for the record that there will

always be the risk that the activity-based funding scheme, like any

other funding system, will have undesirable effects. It is therefore

especially important to acknowledge this fact and ensure the

necessary awareness of the problems in all management units.
