The quantitative analysis of routine data addresses the effectiveness and quality of health care structures and options for asylum seekers. This package consists of four work streams:
- Healthcare for pregnant women during the asylum process
A cross-sectional study will collect data about the health status, risk factors, serious illnesses, complications and utilisation of preventative services by pregnant asylum seekers.
- Health care needs and pathways of adult asylum seekers in receptions centres, compared to adults in the resident population
A cross-sectional study will analyse routine data covering reasons for healthcare visits and patient journeys through the system.
- Quality of health services for asylum seeking children in reception centres, compared to children in the resident population
A retrospective study will consider the quality of care received by asylum seeking children compared to children in the resident population. Avoidable hospitalisations will be used as the quality indicator.
- Effectiveness of screening interventions and evaluation of alternative strategies.
A retrospective study will examine the effectiveness of screening interventions based on routine data of the tuberculosis screening, which were collected under §63 of the asylum law and §36 of the protection against infections law. The observed incidence will be compared with the expected incidence based on predictive parameters (age, sex, TB-prevalence in country of origin).
