Healthcare

Healthcare

  • Do you find it challenging to reduce costs while improving the quality of care provided to patients?
  • Are the right processes in place to achieve efficiencies in your organisation?
  • Does your organisation have the right skill mix? Do you experience the optimum resource allocation?
  • Are you facing procurement challenges?
  • Do you believe there is lack of transparency in the services provided?

Our health system faces many challenges – the Greek financial crisis, the reduced government spending, the urgent demand for cost cutting solutions while maintaining a good quality of care, are just a few of them. As public and private healthcare organisations attempt to address the challenges of building an efficient, transparent and sustainable health system, the sector often lacks the capacity, the capability and the ability to plan, organise and control effectively and efficiently – in order to enable such a reform to succeed.

PwC Greece takes a holistic approach to the healthcare sector. We assist our clients – from healthcare service payers to providers and investors – to improve the quality of care provided throughout the entire patient pathway in the most cost efficient way.
