Only few participants were aware of specific reimbursement processes and most perceived reimbursement decisions to be intransparent. Results Participants and atmosphere Thirty-two persons reported interest to participate in the study of which interviews took place with 25 persons. A comprehensive investigation of barriers and facilitators of the identified dimensions of patient-centredness is necessary (Scholl et al, p8) 7 especially from the patient perspective. Therefore, trainings in, for example, patient communication should address all staff members who get into contact with patients. Interviewees reported a lack of information when being referred to other providers, and receiving specific recommendations for a provider was considered helpful in finding qualified providers, but also providers who smoothly cooperate with the patients. Specifically, providers ought to create a friendly and pleasant atmosphere and dedicate a sufficient amount of time to answer questions and explain treatment plans. 5 6 Usually, themes, such as the biopsychosocial perspective, coordinated care, proactive care, integrated and continuous care, proactive and prepared care teams, shared decision making, individual needs, are associated with PCC.
This included, for example, consultation hours, which are feasible for fulltime employees especially those with chronic diseases, who often have medical appointments. Methods The study conduct and reporting is based on the Consolidated criteria for Reporting Qualitative research. Continuity of care was perceived as being established satisfactorily within DMPs since regular appointments are required.

Auch alle angewandten qualitativen Forschungsmethoden mssen exakt beschrieben werden, damit die Studie nachvollziehbar wird. Anschlieend gibt es zur Auswertung der Daten vier Mglichkeiten, gem der Vier-Felder-Tafel nach Bernard und Ryan: Qualitative Analyse, qualitative Analyse qualitativer Daten: interpretative Textauswertung, Hermeneutik, Grounded Theory oder andere qualitative Analysetechniken.
The first step in analyzing your data is arranging it systematically. However, looking back for a longer period also allowed the patients to reflect on their experiences. Such complexity of payment schemes and non-transparency was reported to induce distrust towards providers and insurances, and a feeling of insecurity regarding trustworthiness of recommendations. Two Main Approaches to Qualitative Data Analysis Deductive Approach The deductive approach involves analyzing qualitative data based on a structure that is predetermined by the researcher. 14 Moreover, the importance of the patients perspective in care is reflected, for example, by introducing and implementing patients rights acts. This included medical (eg, regular administration of tablets) as well as organisational (make appointments in time and informational (collect and organise medical and non-medical information) duties. 5 Steps to Qualitative Data Analysis Whether you are looking to analyze qualitative data collected through a one-to-one interview or qualitative data from a survey, these simple steps will ensure a robust data analysis. Participants suffered from diseases such as breast and gastric tumours, diabetes mellitus type 2, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression and anxiety disorder, hypertension, hypercoagulability with thrombosis and embolism or multiple sclerosis.

Continuity of care For participants, PCC is facilitated through continuity of the process and continuity in contact persons. Participants reported experiencing repetitive diagnostics, as a barrier for PCC, since all care providers should perform diagnostics at the same level of quality and share their results. Understand what customers think: Qualitative data helps the market researchers to understand the mindset of their customers. Since structured feedback methods are not common -especially in the ambulatory care sectorthe only way to express negative feedback is seeking care from another hsco. However, interviewees also reported experiences from former places of living including rural areas. Inductive Approach The inductive approach, on the contrary, is not based on a predetermined structure or set ground rules/framework.

Table 1 Participants characteristics Facilitators and barriers of PCC Figure 1 summarises the facilitators and barriers as identified from the patient perspective. Prior to the interviews, each interviewee was called to provide explanations of the study. In line with this, individual decisions on hospital discharge in cooperation with the patient were positively evaluated, for example, if patients need to organise home modification or nursing services. Not easy to generalize: Since fewer people are studied, it is difficult to generalize the results of that population. The interviewer followed up on topics, which participants initially mentioned as minor comments. Moreover, communicating personal wishes or fears (eg, anxiety disorder) upfront was seen as a precondition for consideration by the provider. This includes actively considering patient preferences (eg, regarding treatment alternatives). One participant contacted the researchers after the interview to share additional experiences, which were considered in the analysis. Therefore, it is essential that as a researcher, you first need to transcribe the data collected.
Zunchst muss sowohl das Untersuchungsproblem als auch das anvisierte Ziel ausgearbeitet werden: Zu welchem Zweck wird die qualitative Forschung durchgefhrt und was soll dabei herauskommen? A researcher can use the questions as a guide for analyzing the data. The acceptability of waiting time length for and at appointments varied between participants, for example, in relation to disease severity or depending on whether participants were retired or working fulltime. Patient consent for publication Not required. Participants perceived a higher level of task separation being a barrier to PCC, since care providers would feel responsible for only a minor part in the process of healthcare provision.
Interviewees perceived private conversations with relatives and friends to be facilitated by safe havens such as seating areas away from hallways or waiting areas While interviewees appreciated that hospitals are not hotels, negative experiences such as dirty facilities or confined spaces considerably. 7 Aspects of care provision which relate to individual interactions between a patient and a care provider or other contact persons were coded under micro level. In addition to previous studies, our interviews revealed that interviewees considered their personal behaviour as facilitating or impeding PCC. Data coding was performed using maxqda.12. Interviewees felt not educated well about the structures of the healthcare system to prevent unnecessary or wrong utilisation of healthcare services.

On the other hand, it allows patients to critically think through recommendations and have realistic expectations about their situation. Participants stated that asking for more information or additional explanation was sometimes misconstrued as affronting professionals.
