English Summary and Conclusions
During March through May 1982 a survey has been conducted including 2958 hospitals and rehabilitative institutions in the Federal Republic of Germany. Included were all institutions under the jurisdiction of the federal law regulating the funding of hospitals (Krankenhausfinanzierungsgesetz, KHG: 1972) and its further specification for the procedures of accounting (Krankenhausbuchführungsverordnung, KHBV:1978). These hospitals and rehabilitative units are mixed in their ownership: private institutions, charity and church organizations, public (community, state or federal), state insurance and rehabilitative institutions (LVA, BfA). A questionnaire was mailed to the administrative director probing into the EDP-involvement in the pertaining hospital. 1074 answers were obtained resulting in a yield of 36.3%.
