  14. 14. DSO: Budgeting systematics Organisational flat rate DSO does not recieve an entire budget sum but recieves a lump-compensation for every transplanted organ, negotiated yearly. In the year 2011, the organisational flat rate is 7.744 € per transplanted organ. 4.275 transplantations are assumed. DSO covers all costs theat occur during the donation process as well as structural costs with this flat. DSO has contracts with organ retrieval surgeons, neurologists, labs beside the own staff. Exeptions: refund of costs to the donor hospitals and flight costs for non-renal organs. Compensation mechanisms if the fixed number of cases is not reached or exeeded.

  16. 16. DSO : Air transport - extrarenal organs Air transport of extrarenal organs In 2011, the lump sum for an air transport of an extrarenal organ is 6.753 € per transplanted organ for which a separate flight is carried out. Unsuccessful operations are included in the lump sum and will noch be refunded separately. The lump sum is based on the assumption that 970 air transports will be carried out in 2011. If the number of 970 flights is exeeded 50 % of the additional proceeds will be refunded to payers. If the number of flights is lower than 970 flights 50 % of the lacking revenues will be refunded by the payers.
