Baseline and what to do in healthcare

Nor would the Viewpoint Institute have thought that its suggestion on gratitude money made in May would be processed by the Numbers just as it became relevant:
“Similar to the former socialist countries, where private health care could not be developed for decades, the fight against the abolition of the gratitude money system in Hungary cannot be considered complete. State intervention is hampered by the fact that the issue of parasolvency divides the medical community and its practice is based on a socio-cultural context spanning many decades, and its elimination may therefore take a long time. ”

In addition:
We have previously written that during the decades of communism, health care was destroyed both morally and in terms of the standard of care (1).
In our recently published video (2) Viktor Orbán clearly explains how the 2002-2010 left-liberal (Medgyessy, Gyurcsány, Bajnai) government destroyed health care:

According to OECD data, per capita health expenditure fell in real terms in Hungary alone between 2003 and 2009 (3),
HUF 600 billion was taken from health care (4),
16,000 active beds were eliminated - hospital closures,
6,000 health workers were laid off.
Added to this is the pointlessness of the visit fee and the hospital per diem (5).

In the fight against gratitude money, doctors' salaries will be raised at an unprecedented rate (6) (7), while gratitude money will be banned. The bill will be submitted to Parliament on Monday.
Nevertheless, after 2010, the salaries of not only doctors but also other health workers have risen significantly (1).

“It is also a shortcoming in the field of health care that although the assessment of the equipment and the supply of specialists of the hospitals has started, the capacity and resources have not been provided after the precise identification of the health needs of the geographical areas. Although there has been a lot of progress compared to pre-2010 conditions, the multiple settlement of hospital debt has not been a definitive solution, the creation of a sustainable financing system would really help. In Government Resolution 1789/20199, the Government called on the Minister of Human Resources, with a deadline of 30 June 2020, to “propose a methodology for determining institutional funding based on supply events and tailored to real needs” and “quality standards in outpatient and inpatient care. indicators, performance-based funding techniques and the development of integrated and patient-centered, bundled forms of funding across care levels. "

Small change:
We are talking about government decision 1798/2019 and not 1789 (8). Health care transformation is ongoing (9).
