Accreditation / steering of outpatient services

CSS welcomes a long-term approach to the recognition of outpatient service providers, which contributes to cost containment – especially in the context of shifting volumes from inpatient to outpatient treatment. However, giving the cantons additional powers in managing outpatient care will only be justified if the cantons co-fund outpatient care under a uniform system of financing for outpatient and inpatient services (EFAS).
