After the successful launch of the third Crosstalks book 'In Sickness and in Health' and in continuation of the Future of Medication project we are happy to announce our follow-up program "Optimal Partnerships through Transparency". This new project wants to engage all stakeholders in health care to create more transparency .
The partners want to continue the open Crosstalks platform and expand the network associated with it towards the French speaking part of Belgium, all the Belgian sickness funds, general managers of academic and private care institutions and regulatory organisms. The Accompanying Committee will be composed accordingly.
The constructive Crosstalks method will engage all stakeholders in
• exchanging the value supply chain of their respective products and services
• exploring the merits and efficiency of their organization, its pricing and ethical code
• defining future challenges and common goals
• stimulating a serene and value driven national public debate
We start with six explorative thematic workshops following the same format: the first part consists of 3 lectures from different perspectives on the chosen theme and a panel-discussion with representatives of all stakeholders in health care: (1) regulatory organisms, (2) care providers (doctors, pharmacists..), (3) sickness/health funds, (4) hospitals (university, private...), (5) pharmaceutical industry, (6) patients.
