Abstract

We demonstrated that the "therapeutic units" of the OPS codes are now used in the routine data (§21 KHEntgG), and that they are able to portray relevant aspects of non-medication therapeutic service. The present study provides a preliminary/exploratory overview on the services provided, mapped by therapeutic units. Future research should focus on the overlap between the category "therapeutic" units and the services actually provided.
