Prevention is the only way to maintain affordable healthcare in the Netherlands, stressed Mr. Jos Aartsen, Chair of the UMCG Management Board, at the Northern debate on Care as a prelude to tomorrows Dutch parliamentary elections. 'In 2030 almost 30% of an average income will be spent to health care costs; this is an unacceptable large part of everyone's income. Care prevention must be the key instrument to tackle these costs, Aartsen stated.
Earlier this year, Aartsen praised the Dutch NN MP’s in supporting the UMCG care prevention policy, including the Hospital@Home project. Hospital at Home is an innovative model that provides hospital-level care in a patient's home as a full substitute for acute hospital care. Hospital@Home is a tool to cost-effectively treat acutely ill older adults, while improving patient safety, quality, and satisfaction. Aartsen encouraged the MP’s to continue to support care prevention policy in the next government's term of office.
