Presentation in English 

Underpinning the economics of a viable health care system is the appropriate allocation of resources across levels of care and within each level. Reformers in CEE and Eurasia recognized that the re-orientation of health care away from the hospital sector was an important first step in freeing resources to address the broad range of health care needs of the population. Leading the track discussions will be a session on management strategies to improve hospital efficiency. Panels will then examine efforts to strengthen and modernize services at the other end of the continuum - primary care. Initiatives to reorganize systems and develop regional approaches to service delivery demonstrate that by taking a creative look at how best to match resources with needs, care can be streamlined to better serve the population. Conferees will hear numerous examples of how disease management methods in new care settings have both reduced treatment costs for each episode of illness and improved the effectiveness of care. Finally, an enhanced perception of the diversity of special needs in the population has led to initiatives to fill gaps in the continuum of care and to enable more non-governmental organizations to participate in care giving.
