European Expert Panel seeks feedback on effective ways of investing in health

Dear colleagues

The European Commission has set up a multidisciplinary and independent Expert Panel on effective ways of investing in health (EXPH). The core element of the Expert Panel’s mission is to provide the Commission with sound and independent advice on matters related to health care modernisation, responsiveness, and sustainability.

The Expert Panel was chaired by Prof Jan de Maeseneer, professor of Family Medicine in Ghent (Belgium). At this moment the Expert Panel has released its “Preliminary Opinion” which is open for comments or public consultation, as it is called.

I invite you to review the document "Definition of a frame of reference in relation to primary care with a special emphasis on financing systems and referral systems" which is attached as a PDF.
