5th Value of Innovation strategic conferenceIncluding and financing innovation in healthcare on evidence-based decision making
Demographic indicators and increasing disparities between needs and available financial resources are one of the key challenges of healthcare politics. The fact that current finances no longer suffice for all available healthcare technologies, let alone the coming ones, has been the reality of our healthcare system for some time. It is therefore more important than ever for decisions to be deliberate and adopted on the basis of different data on their effectiveness and the economy of their introduction in the widest sense. At the 5th Value of Innovation Strategic Conference that took place in the hall of the National Council of the Republic of Slovenia, developers of healthcare policies, representatives of institutions involved in data collection, keeping and processing and patients or civil society agreed that there is sufficient data available in the form of studies and registers in certain areas, but that there is plenty of room in other areas for improved monitoring of treatment outcomes and thus more deliberate further decision-making.
