                  The ICS is the main public institution in Catalonia. More than 35,000 professionals carry out more than 50 million health-
                  care interventions at its 8 hospitals and 271 Health Centres.


                                              Other CatSalut providers

                  The ICS reports to the Department of Health. Its budget is approved on a yearly basis by the Parliament of Catalonia.
                  It works to standardise the contractual relationship between the CatSalut and the ICS and the relationship between the
                  CatSalut and the other health-care centres of the XHUP (Public Hospital Network).

                      SOME BRIEF BACKGROUND

                       1981  Transfer of Health powers (health and social centres and services) to Catalonia.

                       1981-1983  Beginning of the management and implementation of the health map of Catalonia: accreditation of

                        centres and first order of agreements.

                       1983  The basis for the model was established: creation of the ICS, managing organisation of the health services

                        of the Social Security.

                       1983-1989  The Public Hospital Network was created, the reform of primary care was undertaken and hospital

                        care was replanned and management decentralised.

                       1989-1991  Beginning of the separation of the funding and provision with the creation of the General Board of

                        Economic Resources of the Social Security (DGRESS).

                       1991  Approval of the LOSC

                       2005  Process of Modernisation of the Law of the ICS.

                  REASONS FOR CHANGE
                   1.    Institutional normalisation: The ICS must find its own space within the institutional reality of Catalonia, expanding the vision of
                         what the managing organisation of the Social Security is.
                   2.    Governing Board: creation of the governing board as a management organ of the ICS and in charge of setting the major
                         goals and accountability..
                   3.    New human resource model.
                   4.    New economic operation model: own treasury, permanent instead of preliminary financial control, own assets and securing of

                  MAIN ISSUES SOLVED

                  1.       Gives major powers and responsibility to the governing board to set targets and approve the programme.
                  2.       Global organisational reengineering: redefinition of the role of the corporate centre, simplification of the organisation and
                           modernisation of processes and systems.
                  3.       It retains the critical powers needed to govern the ICS, develop the backbone policies of the Department of Health and
                           its portfolio, as well as the budget strategy.
                  4.       It retains the essential powers: As an economic and human resource model, shared services and general framework to
                           prepare the regulations pertaining to how its management units are structured and operate.

                        All new investments (excluding replacement) ultimately depend on the Servei Català de la Salut with execution via GISA or
                       through other channels.
                              The execution of the ICS's infrastructure budgets will be approved by the governing board.

                       At the moment, the Autonomous Government of Catalonia invoices third parties (other organisations, people or companies).

                              Invoicing to third parties will depend on the ICS, thus generating greater income.
