Resumo: OBJECTIVE: High utilisers of psychiatric services are defined as a group of patients showing a great amount of service use, especially inpatient care, consequently causing immense costs. There is a lack of studies investigating differences between East and West Germany. METHODS: Service use and psychopathology were examined in 350 high utilisers receiving inpatient treatment in one East German and three West German psychiatric hospitals. RESULTS: Whereas current length of stay was higher in participants from West Germany, readmissions were more frequent in the East German participants who also exhibited higher psychopathology. CONCLUSION: Presumably, the deficient situation of outpatient health care in East Germany is compensated by increased stationary admission, consequently leading to a structural promotion of high utilisation.
