Our DNA


Taking our outset in patient needs, Amgros buys pharmaceuticals, hearing aids and other medical devices for hospitals at the right price, at the right time and at the right place. We are at the forefront of changes in the market. We strive to secure patients access to new and effective treatments and devices, and to ensure a high level of security of supply. We are also watchful to ensure that we get the most cost-effective solutions. We work closely with our cooperation partners, because this is how we develop and improve.

Danes are living longer. And we can treat more diseases, because new and better drugs, hearing aids and other medical devices are entering the market all the time. This is good. But it’s expensive. Amgros organises tendering procedures for pharmaceuticals, hearing aids and other medical devices on behalf of the Regions. By buying in large quantities, we save society billions of DKK every year.

We own marketing licences for self-administered drugs (SADs). These drugs cover special needs at Danish hospitals and they are manufactured locally at hospital pharmacies. In this context, our task is to maintain the necessary documentation so that the drugs always meet the quality and safety requirements from the Danish Medicines Agency.

Another important task for Amgros is to establish a better foundation for decisions in the healthcare area. We monitor the hospital-pharmaceuticals market so that we are at the forefront of developments. We provide health economic analyses for the Danish Medicines Council. The Danish Medicines Council uses these analyses to assess whether the value of a new drug for Danish patients warrants the additional costs hospitals have to pay. If this is the case, the Danish Medicines Council will recommend that hospitals start using the drug as a standard treatment.


WHAT IS THE CORE TASK AT AMGROS, AND HOW DO WE DO THIS?

The answers are in this presentation film, which also puts a face some of our most important cooperation partners.

AMGROS AS A NATIONAL COOPERATION PARTNER

Amgros creates value by finding cohesion and solutions that benefit everyone in the healthcare sector. We succeed if our cooperation partners succeed.
Knowledge, dialogue and cooperation are our most important tools. Amgros can only be something worthwhile if we work with others: with our owners in the Regions, with our collaboration partners at hospital pharmacies, hearing clinics and in the Regions, with our suppliers in industry, with stakeholder organisations, and with all of our valued partners in the administrative and the political system.
