Working Group for Innovation in Healthcare

The Working Group for Innovation in Healthcare is and expert organization registered in 2014, continuing the activities of the unformal High Level Working Group for Innovation in Healthcare, in existence since 2007.

In its work to date, the Group led by Professor Stanisława Golinowska from the Public Health Institute of the Jagiellonian University Medical College has mainly dealt with diagnosing limitations in innovative therapies accessibility.

The association’s various activities include among others research cumulating in two reports, press conferences and seminars for specialists. We have had the pleasure of coordinating implementation of all these activities since the beginning of the Group’s existence. Andrzej Kropiwnicki, Alfa Communications co-founder, is a member of the Group’s board.

In 2020, the Group organized a webinar on healthcare crisis management in the COVID-19 pandemic as well as citizens’ opinions on actions taken by a number of countries’ authorities, including Poland. The webinar was based on research conducted by the Public Health Institute of the Jagiellonian University Medical College, the Barcelona Institute for Global Health and the City University of New York Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy. The recording of the webinar is available on https://gruparobocza.org/webinarium01.html, whereas both studies’ elaborations are available on https://gruparobocza.org/zarzadzaniekryzysemzdrowotnym01.html and https://gruparobocza.org/covidscore01.html.
