lead role played by Security inside spanish health system has been reflected since the beginning of Epidemic By coronavirus, condition for health technologymeasure of Redressal You Training That’s the triangle of professionals Spanish Federation of Healthcare Technology Companies (Fenin) wants to continue stimulating the health system to be as safe as possible. mark perez drinksPresident of fenin catalonia and the Federation’s Single-Use Sanitary Products Sector, states medical writing that “Spain has a lot of technology that’s in” risk of obsolescence, There are many teams that do not provide much benefit, and it is important that health administrations realize the strategic importance of an efficient health system”.

One of the main goals proposed by Fenin is to ensure that Spain manages to reduce infection rate linked to health care. In the words of Perez, “We are currently far from achieving the figures that the rest of the European Union has. The Spanish public system has one budget most used efficient possible, and by investing in prevention we will have a more efficient health system.”

Is healthcare in Spain currently a priority in the value chain of our health system?

Marc Perez Pay, President of Fenín Catalunya and the Federation of Single-Use Sanitary Products Sector.

I think in the end we have managed to make health care the main focus of our health system reform. We want to highlight the safety of both the health care professional and the patient. In the end, it is all included in all the prevention measures. It helps to have much more efficient healthcare. What we have seen during the pandemic has allowed us to focus on prevention, efficient use of health technology and commitment to all health professionals, technical tools, diagnostics, safety, issues of comprehensive care, etc. This has resulted in a very significant improvement in security, making the system more efficient.

Many times we provide the means, but without emphasizing issues such as training of professionals, safety and prevention. What we have achieved is a critical focus on the part of all elements of the health system to reduce infection and improve patient safety during a pandemic. Now, a major challenge before us in the aftermath of the pandemic, which is to be able to maintain high standards, continue to invest in educational issues, safety, the proper use of medical technology and equipment to improve the safety of patients and professionals. The statistics for health-related infections should continue to improve. The Spanish public system has a budget that must be used in the most efficient way possible, by investing in prevention we will have a more efficient health system.

Is the impact of the pandemic necessary for the shortcomings to be realized with respect to patient safety in health care?

The pandemic has helped us to center the patient and how important it is to have a comprehensive security system in primary care. Patients should be provided with training measures, explicit support to obtain the necessary protection. Prevention is essential. For us, the patient at home is a more vulnerable person, we need to be able to support him in matters of personal responsibility, with caregivers and family members for a safe environment. Prevention has been a major priority during the pandemic and we must ensure that this investment in patient safety issues continues at a high level. A certain remission has been observed due to forgetting of certain aspects like good hand hygiene and proper use of protective equipment. Maintaining the protocol is important and for this a health protection protocol system should be created. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), adequate protocols should be put in place to try to make the health system as safe as possible.


“A health protection protocol system should be created”


Since the start of the pandemic, a priority has been to retrofit residential environments and social health centers to achieve a more secure system. We have seen the impact during the pandemic, they are the more vulnerable patients who require 360º comprehensive care. The whole system should be centered around them. Efficiency is important, but quality is even more so. We have a rapidly aging population, increasing life expectancy and there are situations where the health status of patients at a certain age is more vulnerable. It prioritizes improving prevention, investing in education, and providing resources. Investing in diagnostic and treatment technology so that professionals can do their jobs efficiently is important. Adequate control equipment is needed to keep infection levels as low as possible. We must prevent a healthy patient from entering a health center for surgical intervention and end their hospital stay because of complications arising from health care-associated infections.

What aspects should be changed to promote the social health system based on the needs of people and patients?

We are in the second stage of the pandemic and we have to work towards a massive reduction in the rate of healthcare-associated infections in Spain. We are one of the countries with the highest infection rates in Europe. This shows that we know what to do, but that we should invest more in training. At Fanin we bet heavily on educational training programs, but also on technological investment and innovation. At Fanin we invest in new technologies, systems and equipment to try to prevent, control infections and this is something that should be incorporated into the health system. It helps to make the system more secure.

To what extent is the training of professionals in various health areas such as ICU important for achieving complete and satisfactory protection?

This is a fundamental issue. At Fanin we are a firm believer in continuous training. Finally, Spain has great health professionals in all fields, but creating a safe environment requires constant training in issues of professional and patient safety prevention. The ICU is the most important setting in the hospital, and there we want to invest more in training. We actively collaborate with industry and we have different programs in place to ensure that the transition reaches zero. Clinical procedures and activity involving the patient must be performed safely, so training and monitoring are critical to achieving these objectives.

Now let’s talk about research and innovation. What pillars should be important when planning adequately for autonomous communities to be able to renew existing technology parks?

One of the things we actively work on in Fenin is to promote the renewal of health technology equipment. Every year a technical profile study is conducted at the hospital level in which we show that there is a lot of technology in Spain that is in danger of becoming obsolete. There are many teams that do not provide much benefit, so we should not foster an inefficient environment, both in terms of clinical capability and treatment. It is important that health administrations understand the strategic importance of an efficient health system. Fanin has worked closely with the administration on a plan with 800 million euros to refurbish high-tech equipment. But we should invest in all kinds of technology. The hospital environment requires low, medium and high technology. You have to provide the budget and understand the system as a complex system. If we do not invest properly, we will never have the level of infection rates that are reasonable at the European level, and we are far from achieving the figures that other EU countries have.


“Efficiency is important, but system quality is even more so”



How can the health industry achieve a new care model based on value, with the goal of strengthening cooperation with the health system?

We have spent many years at Fanin defending an innovative value-based public procurement model. A challenge before us is to make it clear that when you invest in a quality product, the system is more efficient. Health workers being a key element, they require the use of efficient and innovative technology which allows them to perform their job in the best possible manner with quality. We believe that it is very important to give importance to technology based on quality, efficiency and objectives. Finally, cost is an important element, but it doesn’t have to be the only one in the decision process to acquire the technology. Cost-efficiency studies should be promoted and it should be recognized that while innovative technology has costs, the return on investment should be valued. Technologies must be shown to be efficient and Fanin’s cooperation with all administrations is continuous. We support the administration so that they understand that this technology is necessary to make the health system efficient.
