Um das Verständnis der Ausführungen späterer Kapitel zu erleichtern, bietet der erste Teil einen Einblick in die medizinischen Gesichtspunkte der Stoffwech-selkrankheit Diabetes. Dem schließt sich eine kurze Begriffsbestimmung der sich seit Anfang der 90er zunächst in den united states verbreitenden DMP’s an. Es wird erläutert, warum Diabetiker von einer Teilnahme an einem DMP profitieren können und mit welchen konkreten Maßnahmen die Verbesserung der Versorgungsqualität angestrebt wird.
Eine umfassende Darstellung der Rahmenbedingungen für die Programme, worunter beispielsweise der Kassenwettbewerb, der Risikostrukturausgleich und die sektoralen Gegebenheiten fallen, rundet das Kapitel ab. Anschließend wird gezeigt, inwiefern mehrere Evaluationsarten für die Bewertung von DMP’s herangezogen werden können und in welcher Weise diesen gewisse Outcomearten zuordenbar sind.

Das fünfte Kapitel bietet eine Betrachtung overseas gesammelter Erfahrungen mit Diabetes-Programmen. Zwei Tabellen stellen für eleven Studien einen Überblick über deren Teilnehmerzahlen, Dauer, Einschlusskriterien und untersuchte Parameter dar. Auf Grundlage dieser allgemeinen Aufführung werden alle Studien einzeln vorgestellt, um explizit deren Stärken und Schwächen anzusprechen. Von besonderem Interesse sind die Konstruktionen der Vergleichsgruppen, weil nicht randomisierte Studien häufig invalide Ergebnisse liefern, wenn mögliche Selektionsverzerrungen unangepasst in die examine miteinfließen. Insgesamt wird sich herausstellen, dass es trotz flächendeckender Verbreitung der Krankheitsmanagementprogramme kaum gesicherte Erkenntnisse über deren Kosteneffektivität gibt. Eine nachweisliche Reduktion Diabetes bedingter Komplikationen ist im Zusammenhang mit DMP’s bisher ebenfalls noch nicht beobachtet worden.

In den beiden nachfolgenden Kapiteln werden die Charakteristika der deutschen Routinedaten analysiert. Zunächst werden die Vor- und Nachteile für die Auswertung der bestehenden Daten aufgezeigt. Anschließend werden anhand der Datenquellen die einzelnen Variablenarten vorgestellt und mit den Ergebnissen des vierten und fünften Ka-pitels verglichen. Der letzte Teil der Arbeit bietet konkrete Lösungsansätze zur Umset-zung einer review, die sich ausschließlich der vorhandenen Sekundärdaten bedient.
