On the 26th of April of 2018, the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) has commissioned to the Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG) to provide a research, presentation and assessment of the current state of medical knowledge on synchronous balneophototherapy in atopic eczema (atopic dermatitis) in a form of a rapid report. The document should be implemented in accordance with § 139a paragraph 3 number 1 of SGB V.
The following aspects should be covered in the report:
- Target population
- Method specification
- Comparative treatment
- Others (e.g., symptoms, adverse events, quality of life, therapeutic results, psychosocial effects etc.)
The identified results of the current state of medical knowledge would form the basis for the further G-BA’s assessment of adequacy, appropriateness and economic benefits of the researched method, which would be performed.
