Risk identification and assessment for PPP integrated health campus projects in Turkey a case study: Kayseri integrated health campus

Arslan, Çağatay
Apparently, the most crucial role of a government is providing the health services to the public effectively. Hundreds of hospitals under this purpose are taken into service since the establishment of the Republic of Turkey. Different methods are tried to be used to provide health services through hospitals which are in charge under government. Those hospitals were directly bonded to the government up to now. In other words, they are built and operated by the government herself. This was a way to make the business more effortful and overpriced for the state. Employing the private sector at this point was vital, and it was also a common culture especially in England. Turkey had employed Public Private Partnership (PPP) model since 2000s and carried the business through domestic construction firms. PPP Model has not only some whip hands but also some difficulties to understand and implement it correctly. This study will attempt to reveal the concepts, meanings, advantages & disadvantages about PPP and the risks which may be encountered as implementing the PPP in Turkey. Through a literature survey, risk factors and their possible impacts for some superstructure projects will be tried to conceive. And the study examines and put under the scope a major implementation of PPP in Turkey: Health Campuses. Founded risk factors will be spotted and interpreted over a real implementation of PPP in Turkey: Kayseri Health Campus. Scenario Analysis will also be employed as a tool to assess the risk factors and the related cost overruns, which are showing up due to those risk factors. Scrutinizing and revealing those factors makes this study meaningful and essential for upcoming projects. Because the current situation seems like; Turkey will be performing some PPP health campus projects hereupon and changing the way of conventional understanding of health service provision. From this aspect, the study is crucial to understand, particularly for the eager contractor firms.

The main aim is to make Electronic Healthcare Records (EHR) of a patient accessible anywhere at any time to all authorized users. This is even valid in the cross-border case; the European Commission has published eHealth interoperability recommendations to the EU Member States, in which the RIDE Project contributed, for the purpose of an interoperable European Health Network. Interoperable ...

Akbulut, Derya; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Actuarial Sciences (2011)
Health problems of the human beings in a society are one of the main components of the social security systems due to the dimension of the financial burden it might bring on individuals, employers, insurance companies and governments. Morbidity measures, such as incidence and prevalence of a specific disease in a certain population enable researchers to estimate for individuals the probability of being diagnosed or being prone to the diseases. This information is usually not tractable because of the non-ava...
