The aim of the project was to analyse foreign arrangements of medical assessment service in terms of its links to decision-making processes with emphasis on countries with similar traditions of law, i.e. especially in the Central Europe. The selection included Slovakia, Poland, Germany and Austria. For comparison, also information on models applied in France and the UK have been worked out. In Austria, the focus was primarily on the assessment in the field of care.
The output of the project includes a basic overview of assessment activity systems in the field of social protection in mentioned countries and focuses on organizational structures of assessment activities in relation to individual benefit areas of social protection. The collected information for selected countries reveals that assessment activity systems for different areas of social protection are not usually organized in a uniform way and separately from benefit administrative bodies. Individual areas of social protection have for their specific needs determined institutions (or individuals), that carry out assessment activities for them. Most of these entities are closely linked with a specific area of social protection, respectively, directly integrated into its organizational structure. In some cases, related or factually or organizationally connected areas use one system.
