Finance minister Kristian Jensen (V) reject outright criticism from sundhedsøkonomer, municipalities and regions, as can't get the equation from the proposed health care reform to pass up.
One economist calls it the "tryllestavsøkonomi", while another calls it "think of a number"-economy. They don't understand how you can save 1.5 billion dollars on administration by, among other things, to abolish the regional councils.
Both in Ekstra Bladet and Jyllands-Posten, you can Thursday, read the economists criticism of the financing of the reform.
Overview: Loop sundhedsudspil
the Government sets out two specific objectives with a new health-care reform:
- More patients to be treated locally, so there must be over 500,000 fewer sygehusbesøg and 40,000 fewer hospital admissions in the year 2025.
- It is especially chronically ill patients, much more needs to be treated by physicians in the local sundhedshuse.
the Remedy is to abolish the five regions, and guys the 205 regionspolitikere to replace them with three layers:
- at the Top will be a state body called the ’Health service of Denmark' under the ministry of Health, which stands for economy, it and governance.
- In the middle of five health services, which geographically fits in with the current regions. The administrations will be responsible for the operation of hospitals, ambulanceberedskabet and praksisområdet.
- the Closest to the citizens must be 21 new so-called sundhedsfællesskaber, which will be built up around the local hospitals around the country. Communities need to ’build the bridge’ between practitioners, municipalities and hospitals.
at the same time, the government will ensure the patients better rights with a series of actions:
Hospitals will be obliged to send patients on to treatment elsewhere, if the hospitals cannot offer treatment within a period of 30 days.
- Patientvejledningen must be improved by means of a single, unified patientnummer, which you can call to get guidance and help.
- when the woman should have the right to be admitted 48 hours in the hospital or a patient hotel.read more Close
But they are not enough down in the government's economy behind the initiative, which was presented on Wednesday. It tells the minister of finance.
- One of the major tasks that have to be cancelled, is the preparation of development strategies. It has the regions spent a really long time to make, it must not forward-looking.
- Therefore, there will be administrative savings up to 2025 to 1.5 billion dollars, said the minister, who explains that there must be used to explain the reform better.
Friday is AT noon and the regions convened to review the reform in the ministry of Finance. The political parties at Christiansborg palace in copenhagen has not yet been convened.

The latter is due to the regional councils, as is the elected part, in the signal path. The political level will be reduced from three to two.
That moves money around internally in the system, but the question is whether there is talk about new money.
- moved money from administration to the patients, and it is in the patients ' eyes, new money. The here reform is to move funds from administration to health, from politicians to patients. It is the right way to move, says the minister of finance.
Kristian Jensen says, that there will be spent less money on administration in the future.
local authorities have criticized that the six billion crowns, which is found in everything, is engangsmidler and not permanent equipment.
