As the take-up of HCP indices grows, governments and health business start understanding that they can gain from supporting the development of open performance comparisons. June 15 HCP president Johan Hjertqvist will present the HCP activities in a workshop in Beijing, hosted by the Dutch Embassy in China. The steady Dutch top position in the Euro Health Consumer Index has become a marketing example and Health Holland, the Dutch health promotion organisation, wants to spread the word. Mr Hjertqvist will also meet with Chinese officials and academics with an interest in health care benchmarking to support the ongoing transition of the Chinese healthcare system.
In Europe health systems performance is a permanent topic for discussion. June 21 Mr. Hjertqvist will speak at the Global access to healthcare – Building sustainable health systems´ seminar in London, arranged by the Economist Intelligence Unit.
