This sixth episode of EcoQUIP+’s procurement series for health managers will focus on innovations procured by healthcare providers to address existing healthcare challenges. In this webinar, our panellists Sofía Moreno Pérez (Procurement Coordinator for RITMOCORE project) and Ion Arrizabalaga Garde (Innovation Procurement Management and Coordination for AQuAS, coordinator of the RaDAR project) will discuss the role of public procurement of innovation in addressing current health challenges such as the treatment of patients using or in need of an implantable pacemaker and having effective infection control system for antimicrobial resistance. By drawing on examples of their respective projects, RITMOCORE and RaDAR, they will explain how to transition into outcome-based payments, and how to implement a value-based cross-border collaborative procurement.
RITMOCORE is a Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) project, funded by the European Union under Horizon2020, addressing the evolution in the treatment of patients using or in need of an implantable pacemaker (PM). RITMOCORE’s model addresses both problems of how to purchase more devices, and how to make the best use of clinicians’ time, while increasing quality of care and contributing to preserve long term sustainability of the healthcare system. It shifts from purchasing devices to purchasing services, where payments are outcome based (thus distributing the risk between the parties), and where services are supported by advanced ICT systems.
RaDAR is a project co-funded by the COSME Programme of the European Union which aims to address the European urgent need of a rapid detection and effective infection control system for antimicrobial resistance (AMR). This will be done through a Buyers Group, composed of four public procurement organisations, that will implement a value-based cross-border collaborative procurement of innovative solutions.
This webinar will take place on 16 May 2023 at 11:00 CET.
