Research project: Access to healthcare services in the context of financing mechanisms. The case of ophthalmology​

After +18 months of collaboration between the team from Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, and Ukraine our project has come to end. We are pleased to announce publishing the REPORT ON GOOD PRACTICES IN FINANCING HEALTHCARE SERVICES IN OPHTHALMOLOGY with infographics.
We invite you to have a deep dive into nuances of financing mechanisms across Visegrad countries and Ukraine.
Overall, our findings suggest various areas where the cataract, glaucoma, vitrectomy, AMD, DME, and corneal transplant treatments in Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia can be improved, such as financing options, quality control systems, reimbursement revisions, early detection measures, and utilization of advanced technologies.
Ukraine can learn from the Visegrad countries' experiences, especially in areas such as financing mechanisms, coverage of treatments, diagnostic screenings, and improving the quality and accessibility of ophthalmic surgeries. Implementation of these practices would require careful consideration of Ukraine's specific healthcare system and legal framework.
We would also like to thank the Visegrad Fund for funding this research, as well as all the institutions and their representatives who participated in the interviews, shared their insights, and support the information-based health policy-making.
