This online on-demand seminar gives a comprehensive understanding of the hospital reimbursement landscape for medical devices in the Czech Republic. Provided in the form of the presentation in Acrobat PDF
The Czech Republic is an interesting market for medical device companies.
Hospital procedures in the Czech Republic are typically financed using a global budget principle. DRG system plays a very limited role in the reimbursement of health care services. Insurance companies and providers annually negotiate reimbursement conditions and tariffs.
One of the key challenges on the market is the inclusion of novel procedures into the List of Medical Services (SZV) by the Ministry of Health. The hospital payment system is constantly developing with the expected release of Czech de novo reimbursement system, CZ-DRG, in 2020.
We offer a seminar on critical elements of the hospital reimbursement system for medical devices in the Czech Republic that can guide your decision-making about the introduction of novel technologies into this market.
Key stakeholders are reviewed, including payers, policy-makers, decision influencers and support bodies (developer of procedural classification/DRG system)
