In comparison with other countries, Czech healthcare stands out for its high efficiency, good quality, and balanced regional accessibility in relation to costs. Citizens and health professionals have become accustomed to this condition and expect to be maintained in the same way, however there are new other modern diagnostic and treatment methods coming.
The Academy of Health Care Management has long been dealing with the issue of healthcare funding and the sustainability of current quality and availability is now more than current, when we experience the rapid development of modern medicine.
At the 2017 and 2018 conferences, we mainly addressed the problems of costly funding and the creation of a new medical devices law. Now, as part of the Spring Conference on Sustainability of Healthcare Financing, an amendment to the Pharmaceuticals Act, which regulates the issue of drug financing, has been presented to the public and we have also begun to discuss in detail the financing of hospital care.
Today, the health sector is faced with a significant staff shortage and unbalanced funding for individual types of healthcare facilities expertise and treatments. Compliance and a long-term concept for hospital financing is crucial, because in this segment of the healthcare system creating a scheme for a long term needs to be properly planned, and large operating cost also means a lot.
