After opening words by Prof. Dr. Holger Pfaff (CoRe-Net applicant and director of the Center for Health Services Research Cologne (ZVFK) at the University of Cologne), Dr. Nadine Scholten (CoRe-Net applicant and coordinator) reported on past events of the network between February and August 2021.

CoRe-Net working group

Dr. Thomas Joist (CoRe-Net representative of the provider perspective) introduced the newly founded working group “Patient-oriented Intersectoral Health Care“. The interdisciplinary working group addresses scientists, health care providers, patient representatives as well as payers and the city of cologne.


Networking and the flow of information between the various sectors and players in the healthcare system are extremely important for good patient care.

CoRe-Net Supply Report

Ingo Meyer (CoRe-Net applicant and head of the PMV research group) provided information on the first published CoRe-Net Supply Report and the current status of the second one. He concluded the review with an outlook on the third supply report.

The first CoRe-Net Supply Report on the topic “Care of people in their last year of life in Cologne” is available here.
