Can the announced restructuring of public hospitals be considered evolutions or revolutions?

More than five months ago, a team was appointed to develop a restructuring plan for public hospitals. In the coming weeks, specificities will be presented in the form of laws. The works were focused on four aspects: ownership structure, hospital restructuring, quality of management of medical facilities and reorganization of the espionage system. As part of these issues, the following changes have been announced:

  • possible temporary ownership changes,
  • establishment of a new institution, namely the Hospital Development Agency, dealing with monitoring the condition of medical facilities,
  • introducing a certified exam to the newly appointed position of a hospital manager,
  • financial incentives for hospitals that will provide high-quality services.
