Amercian chamber of commerce proffers healthcare advice

On October 2 the healthcare working group of the American Chamber of Commerce in Latvia (AmCham) said it had delivered what it called a "vision statement" on Latvian healthcare to Ilze Vinkele, Minister of Health.

"While AmCham strongly supports the necessity to increase healthcare financing, some of the issues that need immediate attention include data availability, evidence-based decision making, improved quality of healthcare services and promoting closer cooperation among various stakeholders," AmCham said in a release.

The organization said officials should focus on "ensuring better patient outcomes and longer life expectancy, which would result in an enriched and more productive society. Believing that [a] healthier population and workforce drive the economic development, AmCham calls for predictable and smart policy improvements, inclusiveness of stakeholders and evidence-based decision making."

It also presented two pilot projects: Oncology Data Registry and Towards sustainable risk-sharing solutions

The AmCham healthcare work group is an executive forum for companies organizations from across various healthcare industries.
