Abstract: The Gesundes Kinzigtal case started about ten years ago as an initiative of OptiMedis AG, a management company with a health sciences background providing integrated care, and the local physicians network (Ärztenetz - MQNK). These two organisations had the capability to convince and fully commit two health Insurance companies, AOK Baden-Württemberg and LKK, to the initiative, within one and a half year of negotiation. OptiMedis and the GP network established together Gesundes Kinzigtal GmbH, with the aim of improving the health status and the inter-sectoral quality level of the services provided, and the inter-sectoral health care experience. It also aimed to reduce the total costs of care (and earn a share of the cost savings from the health insurances involved). Since 2006, Gesundes Kinzigtal has been operating in the Kinzigtal Region in the Southwest of Germany, providing health services to about 33,000 policy holders.
