On the #Guide #launch, Vlad Boeriu, President AmCham Romania Health Committee, points out: „Improving the quality of medical services and increasing the efficiency of using resources in the interest of the patient are central points on AmCham Romania’s agenda. As the AmCham Romania „Health as an Investment” study also reflects, health is an investment, not a cost, and resources must be invested with maximum responsibility for the benefit of patients, to optimize the route from diagnosis to monitoring and treatment. Postponing investments in health causes higher long-term costs for health care, leads to a decrease in quality of life, labor productivity, and consequently to a lower Gross Domestic Product. The guide developed and launched in collaboration with ANAP represents a pragmatic and useful tool for carrying out fast, correct, and efficient medical device procurement, offering a clear framework for planning and organizing procedures, with benefits for all parties involved”.
