The Danish healthcare system is currently under pressure to deliver better healthcare at a lower cost. With such massive pressure on costs, it is expected that there will be further professionalization of working processes via cooperation between different sector players - both within typical supplier relationships and through various partnership types. Interaction between the public sector and an innovative private sector can often result in challenges.
Through our years of experience in working intensely with parties "on both sides" in the healthcare sector, we have gained considerable insight into and a sound understanding of the types of challenges that arise.
Establishing interdisciplinary cooperation between the public and private sectors is one among our core competencies, regardless of whether the cooperation is based on considerations of efficiency or is facilitated through the Danish regulation regarding free choice of healthcare provider.
We are also widely experienced in transferring medical practices, dental clinics and similar.
By bringing together our own multi-disciplinary resources and drawing on the skills of relevant collaborators, we ensure that our clients receive the expert advice they need to develop and maintain efficient working processes and professional cooperation between various parties.
We assist regions, authorities, hospitals, institutions, businesses and various types of practices on:
- Cooperation between the public and private healthcare sectors
- Choice of cooperation type for collaborations between various entities, such as, for example, cooperation to develop new equipment/devices or innovative solutions for the coherent treatment of citizens and patients.
- Consortium agreements and grant agreements, including where the development is wholly or partly financed under the EU's Framework Programmes, FP7/Horizon 2020.
- Commercial exploitation of innovations in a corporate form
- Public-private partnerships (PPP), and public-private innovation
