Outline of Session
  • Introduction
  • Key findings from developed countries
  • Examples of capacity planning
  • Discussion

What is it?

  • Capacity planning is the process of organizing decisions and actions relating to the deliverability and distribution of health care.

Why do it?

  • Capacity planning is of crucial importance, as it determines to a large degree how health care resources are spent by shaping health service priorities, delivery systems and structures.

Who does it?

  • National, regional or local level authorities, reflecting the various tiers of government within health systems. The distinction between these levels is not always clearcut.

What are the types of capacity planning?

  • Strategic capacity planning
  • Operational capacity planning

  • Health care capacity planning devolved to regional level
  • Active involvement of provider organizations in the planning process
  • The extent to which planning applies to both public and private (for-profit and not-for-profit) providers usually reflects whether private providers qualify for public reimbursement of the services they provide
trends in capacity planning in developed countries
Trends in capacity planning in developed countries
  • Usingsystematized care pathways as a means of characterizing the provision of health care services, including their linkage and integration with capital investment.
  • Comprehensive planning systems and the use of new measures of hospital capacity.
  • The need for linkingthe operationof hospitals with flexible financingmodels.

  • Capital investment: spending money up front on new or modernized buildings, machinery and equipment
challenges in hospital capital investment
Challenges in hospital capital investment
  • The long time periods involved in planning, financing, construction and operation
  • The need for health facilities to be able to respond to changing health care needs and medical technologies,
  • The asymmetry between the need for rapid changes to enable the delivery of optimal care and the slow pace of change infacilities from which care is delivered poses a major challenge to the long term sustainability and effectiveness of hospitals
lesson learned from developed countries
Lesson learned from developed countries
  • The critical nature of systematized care processes
  • The importance of the “people factor”
      • involvement of health professionals in decision-making
      • the role of inspired leadership
  • The steadily-growing role of “marketization” in health care
      • including public–private partnerships
  • The tension behind deciding on the proper setting of care
  • The need to look at “whole-system” perspectives
  • The unsolved question of measuring the true capacity of a hospital
  • How can capacity planning, including private sector involvement, increase coverage or quality for a specific health delivery objective in your country?
  • What are some of the main institutional or capacity constraints in your country that impede implementing capacity planning that includes the private sector?
  • What could be done in your country to address these constraints?
key messages
Key Messages
  • To participate in capacity planning, it is important to identify and acknowledge the ownership form of the health system: public, private or mixed.
  • In a mixed health system, it is important to take into account private sector capacity while planning health sector development.
  • Capital investment can play an important role in designing a purchasing scheme for the private sector.
