Study shows ways of improving noise reduction in rail freight traffic

In many regions in Germany, the nocturnal rail freight noise is high above the limit for building new tracks. The most important measure to counteract this is to substitute old cast-iron brake blocks with composite brake blocks, which is expected to be completed by 2020. However, experts say that this will be insufficient. Further technical changes on wagons, locomotives and tracks are necessary. New wagons should be equipped with disc brakes. For controlling and regulating purposes, the noise-differentiated track access charge system should be expanded and an independent noise monitoring system put in place to monitor success. » Details

Rejections and approvals of applications for health services vary greatly amongst health insurances

Every second objection to rejected preventive and rehabilitation care applications to health insurances is successful. However, the success quota is varies greatly amongst the different insurances. On a national level in 2015, 56,000 statutory health insurees raised objections to such negative decisions. This, however, constitutes only a quarter of all people whose applications were rejected. » Details

Physician coverage in city districts: major deviations in Berlin

A current study on ambulatory care coverage in Berlin demonstrates that doctors are unevenly distributed not only in rural versus urban areas but also within cities . Particularly economically weak city districts have below-average numbers of primary care physicians, specialists and psychotherapists per inhabitant. Simultaneously, these areas have a higher need of medical care which will continue rising in future. » Details

Research project to ensure future emergency and acute care in the state of Brandenburg

The state of Brandenburg wants to improve its medical emergency care with a research project that has been unique in this form to date. For the first time, hospitals, doctors, health insurances and policy makers jointly investigate how patients currently perceive acute and emergency medical care and how it could be optimized. The project was initiated by the Brandenburg government and is being realized and scientifically supervised by IGES Group experts. It is funded by a new, nationwide funding program for improving healthcare, the “Innovationsfonds”. » Details
