"How to govern differences: subsidiarity in the health system"

The decentralisation and federalism process of the healthcare protection system has already determined and will determine differences among the various Regions as regards the actual application modalities of essential assistance levels. Such differences are positive when they represent the local realities' adaptation to the general NHS principles and criteria, but are negative when they represent the consequence of different levels of functionality in the supply system. Therefore, the task would be to implement rules in the State-Region or Region-Health Companies relations able to govern differences, nurturing positive ones and minimizing negative ones similarly to what happens in the medical filed with positive and negative cholesterol. The Lecture aims at taking stock of the effects of the 2001 State-Region agreement, with specific focus on the Veneto region, for the purpose of verifying whether or not it contributed to govern differences for the purpose of obtaining guidelines on how to shape in the future a new rule framework in the relations among the various institutional entities.

"Health protection system: ten years of experience for future perspectives"

Healthcare is now facing the increasing problem of rationalising the allocation of available resources in a situation of higher demand of health needs and life quality.

For the purpose of assessing the ongoing changes, Farmafactoring promoted, in cooperation with CeRGAS-Università Bocconi, a research and study cycle about Healthcare, the outcomes of which will be presented and discussed in today's meeting, focusing on what has been done in the past and in particular on the contradictions and weaknesses arisen in the context of the approval of the 2003 Budget Law.

"E-Procurement: centralisation of healthcare purchases. An U.K. – Italy comparison"

One of the healthcare system needs is to reduce expenditure as well as to guarantee the highest population health levels, taking advantage of all available knowledge and tools.

Words as digital signature, document and public procurement digitalisation are already present in the renewal and modernisation process of the Public Administration with the further purpose of reducing expenditures.
E-procurement, namely the good and service purchase modality carried out resorting to modern IT technologies, is part of this latter front.

"Integrated answers to health needs. Citizens and new healthcare"

Reforming means defining new rules in order to achieve better results compared to the past and the present. The 1992/93 NHS Reform introduced a new management model commonly defined "business like", aiming at improving the quality levels of services and the effectiveness in their production and supply, this latter condition being necessary in order to comply with the increasing expenditure macroeconomic compatibility restrictions.

"Project Financing in the U.K. – From a project to a finished hospital"

The Project Financing activity developed over the years in various markets and in particular in Anglo-Saxon ones, by resorting to various contractual and organisational solutions and with different modalities.

In Great Britain the PFI (Private Finance Initiative) was started by the English Government with the purpose of facilitating the creation and management of infrastructures and public services by resorting to private capitals. Italy presents great opportunities and need to realize Project Financing initiatives, both due to the limited availability of public investment loans, and to the need to apply an entrepreneurial and market logic also to the establishment of public structures.

"A comparison of four European hospitals: U.K. - Germany - France - Italy"

All western countries face the increasing problem of providing an answer to the population's health needs.

Countries like Germany, France and Great Britain addressed the problem of the limited availability of public funds and the need for a correct allocation thereof, by facilitating the balanced participation of different providers, both in the matter of management and financing.
Italy as well has seen an intervention seeking to rationalise the system aiming at reducing expenditure through the conversion of health structures into enterprises.
Today's meeting aims at examining how the matter is addressed in the four most important European countries.

"Handling contradictions in the new Welfare model: the Healthcare study case"

Social systems "create the conditions" for their own overcoming and development. The Welfare State model is today under challange because the society "internalised" at various levels the goal of extending to increasingly wider population groups, and possibly to all the population, the actual possibility to provide answers the fundamental personal needs. In the field of healthcare, this means that the society reckons to have the potential, the ability and the tools to pursue the health protection goal without having to resort to the direct intervention of the State. However, the 90s reforms implementing such trend show some contradictions.
