BULLETIN 2011 nr. 5
Patrimoni finally brought their experience and professionalism of the Rai journalist Maria Concetta Mattei, who has interviewed Ennio Gori reviewing the main stages of national and international Cures, which in many respects coincide with the engineer Carier Gori, which can be seen now as the great expert of international Cures and Nadio Delai President parteciping Ermeneia to discuss a rundtable and develop an individual relationship of the various national problems wich involve national health in particular the efficiency of the various regional
gambling and the prospects of private sector Devolopment of health care, especially in the hospital.

The center of almost all relationships are put on the Directiv mantionded on the application of patients’ rights to cross-border healthcare, in Official Gazette pubblishead Europen Comunity April 4, 2011 which obliges
Sto transpons member in the national legislaion later than 30 months after the publication status: it means that by October 2013, all EU countries must take measures to ensure that every European citizen access to health of each states with funding from the State. Priciple that also applies to the thermal efficiency of medicine.
The new rules state that people in the EU for me reimbursed for receiving medical assistance in another Member State, provided that the corresponding trattament and costs in their home country. Also thermal cures therefore can be used in bathrooms across Europe Therma always provided they are within the benefist ready to be paid on the cost of the health system of the country of origin of the curist.
The serach to health care, especially oversas could benefit patients on waiting lists, or those who are unable to find specialized treatment to individuals Home Request high levels of health organization and technology is not present in the provinces originally. Members have also improved
rules for cooperation in the field of rare diseases.
a time of great Intersed sholud that in just a few Yeras Harmonization opens and
homogeonization different health system of individual EU states, today so diverse, both
in terms of the foundation under the “efficiency and timing of medical care and services.
The health system in individual European countries are based mainly but one thousaund
aspects that differ from each other, two models of financing:
the first, the so-called Beverigde model, which is based on the general sense that the imposition pubblic
and the agreement haelth trought private powerd by state taxpayers that serves as a control
and the provision of benefits, the second, called Bismark system, providing private funding
secutity system, which is mandatory for citizens with a clear private competitor and pubblic
– Based Compulsory insurance – Compatibility of general taxation
(Social Health Insurance) for workers and (tax-financed)
employer (social destruction). – The State directly organizes network
– The supplies are made by insurence of public property and services
company directly or throug conventions. operated
– Europens countries: Austria, France – The state can establish contacts with private
Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands – European countries: Britain,
Switzerland. Ireland, Greece, Italy, Spain
Portogual countries of Northern Europe

The Beveridge system was adopted in English-speaking countries in Latin (Italy, Spain, Portugal)
and Greece, while Bismarck has taken root in the countries of Germany, Holland speech
Very interesting what is happening in Germany where there is a progressive privatization
the doctor who has led many public hospital closing, controlled by Lander, contemporary
and the gradual expansion of the private health system, with the implementation of real holding
enterprise, exchange listed securities, which are advancing in the acquisition of public hospitals and
restructuring and discontinued operations.
The result is that, for the same GDP / health expenditure, which is in line with the average of most
developed European countries, the German health services are of high quality and high efficiency
lists’ Waiting essentially nonexistent.
The German health care system
· Overcapacity: 6400 in 2005 (Netherlands, 3100) caused sub-state
the reduction planning “of hospital stays.
· Progressive increase in the presence of public and private hospitals tend to buy less
efficient to increase “budget” insuranc available: between 1996 and 2007 the number of
public hospitals decreased by 31.3%, the hospital social “profit” was reduced
18.8%, while that of “benefit” private hospitals has grown by 40.6% in line with beds and
hospital with the creation of chains of private hospitals (Spa) some of which are cited
in the stock market.
· Lack of funding of public hospitals of the Earth (has been reduced by 28% compared to
period 1991 – 2008)
· The hospital services are financed 90% by public insurance (GKV) and 10% by private companies
insurance (PKV).
· Between 1991 and 2007 the number of hospitals are reduced by 13%, the number of
beds was reduced by 23.8%, the average stay fell 40.7% increase in the
number of admissions of 17.9% (DRG introduction since 2000).
· Costs9 lowest for staff (contract farm work, with incentives ”
meritocracy “for employees based on efficiency and results not bound for
national collective.)
• Greater autonomy and investment in the short term with the reinvestment of
capital gains.
· Management of the “economic” logic is not bound by political-social with top management
· Benefits of participation in “the big chains” with greater bargaining power with
suppliers of goods and services and the ability to attract capital by issuing
actions or collection on the market.
In the Netherlands the new health reform, effective from 4 years, has been proposed organization
privatization push health mediated insurance system by assigning the state control
They work to achieve the objectives of policy objectives set by the government.
· Health Reform Hoggervorst 2006: universal access to treatment more attractive to
“Private” (already in 2002 94% of Dutch hospitals were “private”.)
· The State assumes the role of “regulator” but not “dispenser” of health services: the
management becomes “private”, whereas an “authority” established system control
(“Supervisor of the markets.”)
· Central role of “doctor” as the prescription of health care costs.
· fundamental principles’:
? The basic compulsory insurance for all citizens older than 18 years
run by private companies an obligation to ensure that everyone, regardless of age
or the health of citizens.
? Competition among health insurers among the suppliers of services:
insured company may change each year and part of insurance
It is earnings-related component.
? The insured can choose between “direct” or “indirect” support.

Italy is the only European country that has gone from a pre-existing “Bismarck model” to the
Current “Beveridge” is going through a transition that has led to a significant imbalance between
north and south, both for consultations on the quality of cost performance. Very
interesting in this respect a study fig. (6) conducted wing Bocconi (OASIS 2009 ratio)
documents how 2/3 of the amount of health care within the total deficit in three southern regions
(Lazio, Campania and Sicily).
Studi BOCCONI commodification of health care PERIOD OF ITALY
· Total deficit in 8 years: net flows of 32,190 euros
· Only the regions of Lazio, Campania and Sicily produce 21,900 million deficit equal to
2/3 of the total amount.
Picture 6: imbalance between north and south in the deficit of health: study of Bocconi.
Very interesting research decreased “Hospitals and Health” (photo 7,8,9 and 11) recently
published by Ermeneia and coordinated by Nadio Delai which it has documented, based on the
data provided by the Ministry of Health, health and more efficient mechanisms exist where
competition reached public-private, extolling the right choice of citizens based on quality,
but also on the timeliness of services.

This was especially the case of Lombardy, the Italian region where only a law was passed in 1997
(Photo 10) which places the public and private sectors on an equal footing, with the distinction of
hospital healthcare companies, public and private companies to non-hospital health care law as a
body to monitor the activities of public and private hospitals gathered in the competition. The
It resulted in the first 12 years of application is in the eyes of all inefficient hospitals were
closed and the most qualified to play a very significant amount of activity could Lombardy
we have the best public and private hospitals in the country with European standards, with peaks
excellence on the international stage
Lombardy Region Law 31- / 97
· Separation of local health authorities and hospitals
· Equality between the public and private operation
· The performance pay
· Cost control / efficiency of hospitals and private hospitals, placed on an equal footing
by ASL: remove “conflict of interest”
· Reaffirming the principles of universality and solidarity, however, strongly
reaffirm the right of freedom of choice (principle of subsidiarity)

How the other regions and the autonomous province of Trento with the progress of Europe
integration in the field of health and also with the implementation of federalism in our country?
What would purely speculative hypothesis, if the funding of health care was in Trentino
by an insurance system, within which an important role could be played by the world
cooperation, they could choose between public or private providers in relation to the acquisition
medical services, ensuring your health insurance? What are the advantages in terms of
limits for medical expenses in continuous expansion, especially in systems to public monopolies, and
quality and timeliness of services?
And yet, why not think of a model of financing and provision of health benefits and wellbeing
border situations in the framework of existing partnerships in other sectors or territories
Euroregion, the placement of a single uniform system and applied the principles established in the
European directive on after-sales service in the community?
I think these considerations can provide an opportunity for a political argument now
ineludubili if, in the light of the tragic economic situation of our continent, we want to maintain a
health care cost system stimulation quality that unfortunately are driving most of
public debt.
