PWC has just published a report presenting 10 trends in Polish healthcare for 2016.
The trends are:
- Changes in evaluating benefits in the context of the limited budget of the National Health Fund (NFZ)
- Further debt relief for the public sector
- Hospital care reorganisation
- Increased role of hospitals’ operational efficiency (e.g. lean management)
- Medical tourism (including the cross-border directive)
- Changes in treatment method
- Long-term care
- Private sector participation and the impact on the healthcare system
- Evolution of patients and their requirements
Leszek Sękowski, managing director of the Polish Clinic Vita -Glob ( www.vita-glob.com.pl ) when asked to comment on the report, said : ” Private Health Care in Poland has a lot to offer and growing interest in medical tourism is not surprising. Poland has to offer professional medical staff, modern equipment and professional conditions of stay. Moreover visiting a clinic can be connected afterwards with visiting Poland since our country has a lot to offer. Combination of medical visit and sightseeing in Poland is an ultimate option”.
