Practical performance evaluation from a sociomedical perspective
Changes in the world of work, demographic development, advances in medical procedures and technical devices have an effect on the productivity of every individual. The specific professional and social contextual factors must also be considered. The further development of the sociomedical assessment guidelines in different jurisdictions also plays an essential role.
Medical rehabilitation and services to assist participation in working life are therefore becoming increasingly important, in particular with regard to taking precedence to retirement benefits or to support the return to working life. This means that the assessment interface is especially significant in different jurisdictions, in particular the interfaces for pension, health and long-term care insurance, employment agency and rehabilitation in various areas. Mental health comorbidity makes it more difficult to assess performance in the case of underlying organic disease.
Due to the diversity of sociomedical interfaces on the one hand and the different assessment bases of the various jurisdictions on the other hand, cross-sectoral knowledge and collegial exchange that takes account of the General Data Protection Regulation are becoming increasingly important in order to deal with the sometimes complex issues in due time.
The difficulty lies in finding a uniform assessment approach. In this connection, performance and resilience in the employment history and significant aspects of the organisation of work are discussed in detail. The contents of the sociomedical assessment are explained in detail.
