A great start of the year towards sustainable healthcare systems!

2015 got off to a flying start for COCIR with the launch of new initiatives.

Our newest Opens external link in new windowCode of Conduct, setting the standard for member companies in their interactions with healthcare professionals, came into force on the 1st Jan. 2015. Alongside the Code, a full package of supporting materials, including Questions and Answers and Do’s and Don’ts, is now available in 6 languages: English, Dutch, French, German Italian and Spanish and is completely free of charge to both COCIR members and stakeholders.

COCIR supported the Opens external link in new windowWorld Cancer Day on 4 February especially as COCIR leads the industry voice on minimally invasive technologies with medical imaging and radiation therapy industry sectors and health ICT supporting cancer care. Our industries are highly innovative and bring new sets of products and services which allow prevention against cancer, early screening, tools for treatment and after care including cost effective interventions.

Our Opens external link in new windowfirst key event of the year took place at the European Parliament on the 2 February in Brussels and introduced our Opens external link in new windowcall for action including the COCIR six recommendations that are critical to move towards sustainable healthcare systems. Françoise Grossetête MEP, Vice President of the EPP Group hosted this event.  In her welcome speech, Ms Grossetête stressed that “health should not only be seen as a cost or a burden for society, but above all as a factor of growth”. Commissioner for Health & Food Safety, Vytenis Andriukaitis, added in his keynote speech that COCIR put a lot of thought in its recommendations and that he was pleased to say that several of them were reflected in very recent initiatives supported by the Commission.

COCIR will continue to support EU institutions and Member States so that healthcare remains high in all policies and get the support it requires to drive EU economy and boost enterprises based in Europe.

COCIR is now going to focus in the next few weeks on innovation and market access in Europe and beyond and will articulate the growing importance of integrated care. Our key members will actively participate in events such as the Opens external link in new windowSummit on Innovation and Active Ageing in order to share their experiences and competences at highest level.

More to come, so follow us!
