Electronic Registry for Elderly Care Services (ERPEL)

Orhan Konak

The portion of elderly people within the Germany population is steadily increasing. Therefore, the demand for adequate elderly care services is also increasing. The Electronic Registry for Elderly Care Services in Germany (ERPEL) (German: Elektronisches Register für Pflege-Dienstleistungen in Deutschland (ERPEL)) forms a longitudinal database of care-specific measures from individual districts to form a holistic national overview. ERPEL allows the up-to-date quantification of offer and demand for elderly care services across geographical regions. Thus, it enables a standardized methodological approach for interactive data analysis and exploration to support demand planning.
