Maccabi Delivers Coordinated Care to Over 1.9 Million Members

Israeli in the OECD
In 2009, total health spending accounted for 7.9 percent of GDP in Israel ($17 billion USD), below the average 9.5 percent in OECD countries. While spending per capita has been increasing by 1.5 percent per year on average since 2000, this rate is much lower than the OECD average of 4 percent per year, and this despite the fact that Israel has a fairly high rate of physicians to population - 3.5 practicing physicians per 1,000 population as compared to the OECD average of 3.15.

In line with most OECD countries the number of hospital beds has fallen over time. This coincides with a reduction of average length of stays in hospitals and an increase in the number of surgical procedures performed on a same day basis.

ICT within Israel Healthcare
While, the availability of diagnostic technologies such as the number of computed tomography (CT) scanners and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has increased, the number of units in use in Israel lags well below the OECD average. Israel has however, made significant progress in computerizing health records for citizens and health maintenance organizations (HMOs). Israel has overcome both technical and medical informatics challenges to be able to retrieve information from disparate sources and databases and make it available in a way that supports the patient and clinician relationship.

Maccabi within the Israel health System
Global health systems are finding it increasingly challenging to deal with aging populations and the increased prevalence of chronic disease. The potential for care coordination and alignment of payment incentives to meeting increased need is well documented, however fully realized examples are less readily available.

Maccabi Healthcare Services (Maccabi) in partnership with physicians, and a foundation of technology investments, delivers a coordinated care solution to over 1.9 million members in Israel (25 percent of the Israeli market).
