Large savings on medicine
Amgros has just completed its largest-ever tendering procedure for biological pharmaceuticals, including the world's top-selling drug: Humira. Now it is time to realise the savings as quickly as possible. Denmark is so efficient that other countries refer to us as a centre of excellence.
With the new contracts, Amgros expects savings of at least DKK 420 million next year. Now that the contracts with the suppliers have been signed, it is time to realise the savings as quickly as possible. This cannot be achieved until physicians at Danish hospitals start using the new and far less expensive drugs.
Denmark has very good experience with switching to new drugs. In fact, we are so good that other countries have been drawing lessons from us for a long time, and they are now referring to Denmark as a centre of excellence in the art of implementing new biosimilar drugs and reaping major savings fast.
