Together with experts from hearing clinics, we set out the requirements that form the basis for our tendering procedures for hearing aids. After Amgros has set up a framework agreement with a supplier, we help the public hearing clinics by following up on stock control and deliveries of hearing aids to citizens. Therefore, we maintain close dialogue with hearing clinics, both to strengthen our collaboration and in order to keep up to date with developments in the area.
The Danish Medicines Council decides whether the public hospitals should use a new pharmaceutical or a new indication for an existing pharmaceutical as a standard treatment. Amgros has been supplying health economic evaluations and negotiated prices for the Medicines Council since the Council was established in 2017, . These evaluations are included in the assessment of whether the added value of a pharmaceutical matches the additional costs in connection with use. Amgros and the Medicines Council work under the arms-length principle. This means that clinical and economic assessments is kept sharply separated. On the other hand, we work together to develop and streamline processes so that hospitals can start using new drugs very quickly.
Manufacturers and suppliers of pharmaceuticals, medical devices and hearing aids from all over the world are important partners for Amgros. It is in everybody's interest that as many suppliers as possible want to market their products on the Danish market.
We have a close dialogue with suppliers and their trade associations. We listen to their needs and balance solutions so that they are attractive for both them and us. This applies when we organise tendering procedures, when we optimise security of supply, when we prepare health economic evaluations of their products, and when we negotiate prices of new pharmaceuticals.
Together we are larger and stronger. This is the fundamental philosophy behind our work with players in other countries. Denmark is a small country with a small market, but with other countries, we can enhance our position and become a stronger cooperation partner for suppliers. At the same time, suppliers can be part of a bigger market. This should benefit all parties.READ MORE
