Among others, the key words are additional contributions, retention, family doctor model etc.
In the following, the changes to the framework in health care, that describe special challenge to billing from the view of the contract management, are specified exemplarily

Growing Number of Actors

In the whole medical and health care field the number of actors is growing staedily. Who are the future suppliers in medical sense and in the field of health care respectively; who are the cost units?

The bundle of health care related services going beyond different suppliers permits new innovative products, whose integrated billing makes a convergent billing system necessary.
