Increasing expenses on healthcare both by the state and entrepreneurs – such are the postulates of the experts of the Healthcare Congress of Employers of Poland – writes “Rzeczpospolita”.
Over 80 suggestions for solutions intended to facilitate the functioning of the healthcare system were compiled in a book of recommendations, presented on the last day of the Health Congress to Minister of Health Konstanty Radziwiłł. 120 academics, doctors and economists agreed that urgent changes in healthcare financing, as well as the organization and management of the healthcare system are needed.
Therefore, recommendations elaborated in the course of 16 panel discussions involve increasing expenses on healthcare from 4.5 percent to 6 percent of the GDP – the average in OECD states.
More realistic pricing of medical services is another postulate. According to experts, the engagement of the private sector is necessary for the healthcare system to function properly and access to public funding should be equal for public, local government-owned and private medical benefit providers.
