CLTC / Competition in Long-Term Care


The project CLTC considers the German market for inpatient long-term care. This segment of the German health care system has received little attention from health economics researchers so far, despite the importance it is imparted by an ageing population. Research here focuses on issues of price elasticity of the demand for inpatient long-term care and on the effect of different ownership structures for the price of long-term care.
