The Paris Healthcare Week (www.parishealthcareweek.com) is the largest gathering of healthcare stakeholders and decision-makers in France. The French hospital federation is sponsoring a day dedicated to medical information and financing and I have been invited to hold the opening talk about my international experiences on “Système de soins : vers un changement de paradigme” jointly with Étienne Minvielle, Professor at EHESP, Paris, France. Updates on twitter @katharinajanus.
Hosted by the Center for Healthcare Management the 6th Forum will be held April 24/25, 2017 at the Columbia Global Center in Paris, France. The Forum is by invitation only and specifically designed to allow participants to exchange ideas and explore collaborative efforts in a confidential setting. Market access and product bundling are facing reimbursement challenges in all markets with changing payment mechanisms, regulations and the impact of new governments and economics. Attend the 6th Forum to identify new trends and incorporate them into future products and strategies necessary for success in a market of shifting US and EU priorities.
Last night I followed an invitation by Professor Étienne Minvielle to speak in front of France’s senior hospital executives (“Les hautes dirigeants des hôpitaux de la France” – almost everything sounds much better in French) about my international experiences with designing and implementing incentive systems. The current environment in France is in flux and the thinking circles around adding selective monetary incentives (“Pay-for-Performance – P4P”) like in many countries. But do we get what we pay for if we follow this path and haven’t other countries, such as the US and Germany tried this out as well? Yes, they have. And was it a success. We don’t know. But why don’t we know?
