AmCham Health Care Council met with Prof. Ladislav Dušek, Director of the Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic ÚZIS.
The challenge for the government managers of health care system is to define quality in a way that can be measured, and improved. The tool for this is a system of integrated registries tracking how different treatments work and how different providers perform. Quality of healthcare can be increased only along with these systems.
Integrated registries in the health care system also encourage innovation!
