Key Publications Now Available and Preparing for a Great Summer!

Two Key Publications now available:

(1)    Preliminary results of our Medical Imaging Equipment Age Profile and Density report: This 2014 report, launched at the annual HOPE Conference, has identified some alarming findings, namely that installed base density per capita for key medical imaging modalities is highlighting fundamental access inequalities. COCIR calls on EU institutions and Member States to further support the need for a comprehensive, coherent and sustained investment and deployment strategy for all medical imaging equipment modalities and related healthcare ICT equipment and services, through an effective use of cohesion policy funding.

Those are critical elements having proven key benefits for EU citizens towards more sustainable healthcare systems. A more in-depth report will be issued end Sept. and will include more data and in-depth analysis for key EU countries.

(2)    the COCIR guide on EU Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) 2014-2020 for healthcare projects, This is the 1st ever published comprehensive guide designed by COCIR to raise awareness on the ESIF and assist potential beneficiaries step by step in accessing these funds for their healthcare projects. This guide is coming at a critical moment while EU Member States are working on their partnership agreements and operational programmes for the next 7 years to come. It includes a foreword signed by Mrs Paola Testori-Coggi - Director General from DG SANCO and Mr Walter Deffaa -Director General from DG REGIO, who welcomed this publication. This launch is taking place after a very successful press conference we organized last week in Poland in partnership with Lewiatan, a highly respected polish organization representing the employers.

 

Preparing for a Great Summer:

COCIR continues to increase its foot print in eHealth activities and recently recruited 2 highly skilled positions: one eHealth Senior Manager and one EU Project Leader. COCIR also collected important and valuable inputs from its membership to constructively respond to the Green Paper on mHealth.  COCIR is also recognized as the EU industry leading voice outside Europe, involved in EU-US MoU on interoperability and on-going TTIP discussions and supports European Commission in establishing a dialogue with Chinese Authorities (NHFPC), since the successful roundtable organized in Beijing end of last year. More to come on this before the end of the year.
