Free access to the online platform reimbursement.INFO

We support research and education

The online platform reimbursement.INFO has had access to performance, structural and billing data of German hospitals since 2006. Through cooperation with universities, colleges and medical societies, physicians, lecturers and students can access this wealth of knowledge free of charge.

Our aim is to create and maintain transparency. Only through publicly available data can, for example, grievances be uncovered, population centers identified and markets developed. We identify, describe, illustrate data and transform them into precise as well as validated data series, which now span over 15 years.

This highly informative data is already being accessed by many professional societies, as well as students and educators, and is yielding excellent results and insights. This is where we like to start and would like to make our contribution to this important pillar of research and education!
