The healthcare system in Poland suffers from some inefficiency in its organization, functioning and financing. In order to implement comprehensive change management in healthcare sector, the Polish Ministry of Health has been working for the last three years on the "Healthcare needs maps", that aim at creating a tool and a process appropriate to develop public policies at national and regional level based on evidence coming from reliable data. The stochastic analysis and projection of healthcare needs will be a basis for contracting process of National Healthcare Fund and public investments. The Healthcare needs maps are a condition sine qua non for receiving the EU funding for healthcare sector. Healthcare needs maps enable identification of inefficiencies in the system and planning of prevention actions, healthcare services provision and investments adjusted to demographic and epidemiologic trends. To implement evidence-based policy making and enable modelling system performance and optimum shape of delivery net it is crucial to extract, count and present the data in an appropriate way and give it an appropriate meaning, what can be achieved only in cooperation with medical experts. Maps present values for over 1000 input, output and outcome indicators, separately for individual hospitals and concerns nearly 300 disease groups. Ministry leads the project to better coordinate the wide range of stakeholders but have never been meant to be institutionalized and forced down by the central administration. This is why so many concerned parties are involved in the process and the results are being consulted so widely.(original abstract)
