Samenvatting

Because complex medical patients are a subgroup of the medical population and because complexity assessment involves extra effort, preselection of these patients through identifiers is necessary. There is no best identifier for complexity, and the one most suitable for the population served should be selected. This article provides a table with potential identifiers and discusses the difference between disease-oriented screening and treatment and a more generic approach such as complexity screening and complexity management.
