Healthcare

Our shared vision is longer and healthier lives for our society. Better patient outcomes are the ultimate goal of all involved parties.
 
Predictable and smart policy improvements, inclusiveness of all involved stakeholders and evidence-based decision making are the pillars for sustainable reforms in healthcare benefiting each member of the society, and ensuring an attractive business environment. 
 
Innovation in health technology – medicines, medical devices, diagnostic technologies, and increasingly, digital health – is transforming the way how healthcare systems are organized.
 
Healthier population and workforce drive the economic development of the country.

In 2020 AmCham concluded an extensive study in close cooperation with the Ministry of Health, National Health Service and other stakeholders aiming at improving the Oncology Data Registry. On October 15, 2020 the results of the study were presented to the leaders of sector, including the Minister of Health, chairs of major clinics and leading doctors. Among the proposals are improving the existing system so that data from clinics are automatically transferred to national register PREDA, streamlining processes, improving content and ensuring data synchronization across different systems. The ultimate goal is to create new oncology data entry process with an entirely new tool which would ensure the input and use of meaningful, qualitative data that will improve patient outcomes, advance research and health policy planning. To view full list of recommendations (Latvian)
