the 8th International Symposium
Evidence-Based Health Care
titled "HTA & Efficient Management of Basic Benefit Package"
October 7th and 8th, 2013, Warsaw, Poland

Sessions:
Guard or guardian?
The role of the HTA agency in a health care system
The Agency for Health Technology Assessment in Poland, whom we criticise so often, decided to take the matter into their hands and lead this session on their own. Such commitment of an institution so much immersed in hard work to our Symposium makes this session a unique event and an opportunity for a hot discussion with all doubters.

Always in fashion
Reforms in health care systems
The world does not stand still: topics of the Symposium change, so do officials in ministries and funds, governments fall… Despite this, an apparently worn out topic of “reforms” is still timely. Let us see how the problem of still increasing costs of continuously developed resources and their effect on the mechanisms of financing of healthcare systems is addressed in other countries. Read more...
Deep (but narrow) throat
The valuation of services in the benefit package
The payer in Poland has no competitors. Therefore, the NHF professionals must be people of absolute integrity and extremely high work ethic as they have no actual motivation or incentive to care for the quality and availability of services, the community’s health, or the condition of service providers. Read more...
Next, please!
Patient involvement in HTA – how to communicate?
After three sessions, during which divisions may become apparent, we propose a consolidation session. Everyone of us was, is, or (unwillingly) will be a patient. Active patients’ associations, more and more boldly using HTA tools, will be presented. Read more...
A Game of Packages
Health insurances and benefit packages
Inpatient care is the battlefield, on which media focus their attention when they evaluate the efficiency of a healthcare system. It is getting more and more difficult for the Resources to hold their ground against the raising pressure of the Costs. With meagre supplies, worn out weapons, and poor commanders, the result of the struggle is at best uncertain. Or, perhaps, there is still a way to win? Let us see! Read more...
We wish you good (public) health!
Public Health
Despite an inviting motto, in Poland this subject seems difficult to absorb. Therapeutic programs are a hot potato that for years has been thrown around on various levels of administration. How can it be done reasonably? We will ask the specialists. Read more...

Hello, who’s got the money?
Insurance in times of crisis
"If such a warm and sunny country as Greece has gone bankrupt, what happens to our cold and cloudy Poland?" – a local-born taxpayer might think. The examples from the south of Europe are a lesson for the followers of populist assumptions like "everyone deserves everything", who trust in the prevalence of the state and always believe to "go through the bad times somehow". Health insurance is a way to avoid the collapse of the costliest and most difficult to reform spheres of public life, namely, the health care system. During the session, experts will present simulations and predictions, and share their experience in the development of additional health insurance in the world.

Doomed for jetsam?
Managing welfare benefits in times of crisis
When the ship is sinking and the storm keeps raging, the cargo must be verified for usefulness and durability: the unnecessary items will have to be cast overboard by the crew, and those not secured well enough soon shall be washed away by the waves. The situation may not be different with the welfare benefit package – the relentless wave of crisis will wash away all the harmful technologies, with ruthlessness no one has shown as of yet, for fear, lack of competence or other political reasons. What will the decision-makers do: let the natural powers take over, or try and patch all holes in the ship’s hulk?

Meanwhile on board of "Titanic"
HTA in crisis-laden countries
We encourage You to listen to some colleagues’ personal reports from countries which, similar to Titanic a century ago, hit an iceberg of world crisis and began to sink. How did it all begin? How fast did the finance gap extend? What influence did it have on the health care system? Was anything done to help the situation?

Wanna buy the Brooklyn Bridge?
The importance of pricing of health services in times of crisis
State’s financial problems create a new situation between the payer and the service provider. The payer does not want to pay any price for every “Brooklyn Bridge” they are trying to sell to them, unlike the gullible dupes who first came to New York. The payer must decide if he or she really needs any of the offered “bridges”, and perhaps demand something more attractive at a lower price. On the other hand the service provider has to think about a reasonable, acceptable price and a proper, long-term price policy for maintaining contact without considerable loss. And all that needs to comply with the current system...

We are waiting for your topic!
According to your suggestions from the last Symposium, we decided to continue the formula of pararel session to make this event more attractive.
