Our DNA


Taking our outset in the treatment needs of patients, Amgros buys medicines for hospitals at the right time, at the right place, at the right price, and always with an eye to protecting the environment. We keep abreast of market developments. We strive to ensure that patients benefit from new medicines as soon as possible, and that we have a high security of supply. 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 and hearing aids are entering the market all the time. This is good. But it’s expensive. Amgros organises tendering procedures for pharmaceuticals and hearing aids 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 are another important component in supply. 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.

We are advisors and consultants for key players in the healthcare sector, with whom we share important and highly specialist knowledge.

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.

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.

AMGROS AS AN INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION PARTNER

We apply our national experience to develop cooperation with other countries and to fulfil our vision: to be recognised internationally as a role model in translating healthcare needs into action Denmark is not the only country facing the challenges of a modern health service. Therefore, we monitor how other countries work with the same issues for mutual inspiration and development.
