The assessment of investments in social and health care facilities and the associated number of hospital and assisted living or nursing home beds is influenced by a number of different factors.

The key finding of the project was that the number of inpatient episodes in hospitals has decreased and the length of stay shortened. Experts expect this development to continue. The number of assisted living or nursing home beds for the elderly has increased, but at a slower rate than the number of elderly. As needs continue to change, flexibility in the use and conversion of facilities is key. With the advancement of technology, digitalisation and the development of treatment methods, increasing remote and mobile services are reducing the
need to build physical facilities to provide services. The availability of staff is a major challenge and affects the ability to implement take-home services.

The project produced a framwork that brings together perspectives that should be considered when evaluating investments in facilites. The framework is divided into two parts. The first part focuses on assessing the need for and size of the investment. To support the assessment, an Excel-based forecast until 2040 model was produced. Based on the model, three scenarios were built for future needs. The second part includes numerous qualitative aspects regarding
the need for the incestment as well as the quality of the investment plan.
