„Health Insurance Company of the Year 2015“ Has Started. CompuGroup Medical Is a Main Partner

Prague, 25. 6. 2015 – CGM became a main partner of a new project, „Health Insurance Company of the Year 2015“, organized by HealthCare Institute. Health insurance companies will be awarded in five categories such as “Best prevention program”, “Insurance company best perceived by medical facilities” and more. This project’s goal is to extend the competitive environment between health insurance companies and help improve relations between insured and doctors.

“Health care providers and insurance companies have been parts of our client portfolio for many years, but last year, we stepped in the field of patients. That’s why this project, which goal is to extend relations between insurance companies, the insured and health care providers, seems really interesting to us and we will gladly support it. We believe that stronger role of the patients can really help with development of Czech health care,” says Vladimír Přikryl, CompuGroup Medical General Manager.

Expenses related to health care are covered by seven health insurance companies in Czech Republic.

“We want to prepare a practical guide to the field of health insurance for our insured, so we will build on our previous work. We’ve been rating hospitals for 10 years and questions about choosing the right hospital and health insurance keep coming. People are mostly interested in preventive programs for themselves and their families as well as which hospital should they choose in case of trouble or surgery,” says Daniel Vavřina, Health Care Institute General Manager.

With this competition, HealthCare Institute wants to show to public which health insurance company offers their clients better services or is more interested in their health through preventive programs. Together with their partners they spoke to 156 hospitals management and thanks to CGM, the main partner, HCI can make a survey between 14 000 doctors. The results will be completely unique in Czech Republic.

HealthCare Institute has been organizing the “Best Czech Hospital” project for 10 years and CGM is also one of the main partners. This year, HealthCare Institute introduces the “Health Insurance Company of the Year 2015” which will provide a complete picture of the market and help clients orientate easier in insurances’ products and services. Winners will be announced on 24th November 2015 at “Effective Hospital 2015 – Strategy of Health Insurances and Hospitals” conference.
