Planning of health care in the Region Västra Götaland




The planning of health care in the Region Västra Götaland is facing major challenges in the future. Challenges such as accessibility, patient safety and the interaction between hospital, primary care and community health care. Several important factors affect the development.

Improved living conditions have caused many to live a long life. In the long term, this presents a challenge when the proportion of taxpayers that pay for medical care decreases. We also face challenges in terms of demographic trends. According to the Region Västra Götaland forecast, the population will increase by about 6 percent by 2020. It is likely to affect the structure of health care.

The need for spatial- and demographic analyzes in planning health care is greater than ever and can contribute to rationalization and optimization of the future care system.
