During their recent discussions, the Troika asked the Ministry of Health for the improvement of accounting services and invoicing system of Greek hospitals as well as to make reports on medical supplies.
In 2014 the Ministry of Health is expected to have a budget that reaches 4.483 billion euros in order to limit the cost of the health services offered.
The government commitment is to present a detailed pricing system in hospitals, which is going to meet the needs of the hospitals in the future.
Moreover, a new system of supply and stock management has to be created as well. By scanning the bar codes of medication and consumables, the hospitals’ systems will be up to date on what is available and what is needed.
