Health projects




The magazine "HEALTH MANAGEMENT" is a publication designed for managerial staff in the healthcare system, managers of medical institutions, systemic experts, and clinicians. It is published by the Institute of Innovation and Responsible Development INNOWO in cooperation with the Health Care Institute at SGH (Warsaw School of Economics) and the Polish Coalition for Personalized Medicine. The editorial team is led by Prof. Dr. Hab. Ewelina Nojszewska from SGH and Dr. Hab. Beata Jagielska from the Polish Coalition for Personalized Medicine.

Each issue covers current and essential issues related to the organization of healthcare in Poland. The magazine provides commentary and explanations on the consequences of legislative and procedural changes, along with reports on groundbreaking clinical research.

Innowo's primary activity in the healthcare sector is to support various stakeholders in more effectively allocating limited resources for health. To achieve this, the focus is on economic research in healthcare, particularly in innovative therapies, organizational solutions, and systemic innovations. Innowo believes that combating inefficiencies in the healthcare system, along with identifying the fundamental and most urgent needs of patients, is the quickest way to improve the health quality of the Polish population. To this end, various types of research are conducted, needs are analyzed, roadmaps for optimizing the current system are developed, and conferences are organized to increase public awareness on this topic, all in collaboration with our experts.



Often, we are not aware of the overall costs associated with illnesses. The healthcare system in Poland also sees only its monetary costs. Such an approach is the cause of inefficiency in terms of allocating limited resources and the approach to health prevention and therapeutic interventions. In order to counteract these unfavorable effects, Innowo experts engage in the analysis of total costs in the healthcare system, and these activities are carried out in close cooperation with the National Health Fund and the Social Insurance Institution. The subject of the research is the analysis of the time and costs of patient treatment in the healthcare system, as well as those that may not be apparent at first glance - outside the system. The basis for such research is always epidemiological analysis, along with the study of the characteristics of the patient population and the latest findings from scientific publications.


Value-Based Healthcare is a healthcare approach based on value, where results and the quality of medical facilities' services are rewarded. It is a concept in which payment is made for a specific therapeutic effect, not just for services rendered. Patients also have the opportunity to check which facilities perform certain procedures and which of these units offer the highest quality treatments.

To introduce this concept into the system, the first step is the implementation of appropriate reporting, registers, and data collection that allow the calculation of relevant indicators. This will enable the optimization of processes and contribute to increasing cost-effectiveness. Innowo, engaged in the analysis of costs in healthcare, actively supports the implementation of Value-Based Healthcare into the system. We are one of the founding members of the "VALUE IN HEALTHCARE" Coalition, whose goal is to promote the concept of Value-Based Healthcare, take actions to improve the quality of care, and pay for results. The Coalition serves as a platform for dialogue and exchange of experiences with all participants in the healthcare system. INNOWO, together with the Value-Based Healthcare Center Europe, is also responsible for organizing the Polish edition of the Dragon’s Grant & Endorsement award. The competition is aimed at institutions operating in the field of healthcare that implement practical solutions in the organization of the system based on quality, the so-called Value-Based Healthcare. The winners of the first edition were the University Clinical Center in Gdańsk and the Lower Silesian Oncology Center. The Polish project "Pomeranian Integrated Care Model for Advanced COPD Patients" by the University Clinical Center in Gdańsk also won the international VBHC PRIZE Dragon's Grant & Endorsement competition. Meanwhile, the Lower Silesian Oncology Center with the project "Network of Oncology Hospitals" reached the final and ultimately secured the second place in the VBHC Dragons Endorsement category.

Value in healthcare and optimizing the effectiveness of patient treatment are priorities in today's medicine. Personalized medicine provides the necessary tools in the form of innovative, precise treatment methods, and appropriate planning of the therapy process using modern medical products. However, to fully harness the possibilities offered by personalized medicine, certain systemic changes and optimization of diagnostic-therapeutic processes are necessary. Innowo supports these changes by organizing meetings, debates, and workshops, as well as developing relevant recommendations. One of Innowo's activities in this area is the Polish School of Molecular Biology in Practice, organized in collaboration with the Polish Coalition of Personalized Medicine. Workshops conducted as part of the school aim to familiarize oncologists with the basics of molecular biology and genetics, as well as the application of this knowledge in molecular diagnostics and clinical practice. The future of oncology is primarily precision medicine, personalized for each patient, and its integral part will be advanced molecular diagnostics based on the latest scientific achievements in the field of molecular biology of tumors.


Oncoroundtable is a series of expert discussions in the field of oncology. The goal of the project, organized in collaboration with our partners, is to discuss and exchange experiences regarding effective methods of organizing processes and therapies in oncology across various therapeutic areas. Throughout the workshop and seminar series, we explore how the optimal patient pathway should be designed and managed based on best practices from various European countries. Additionally, we focus on optimizing the use of genetic and molecular diagnostics in early cancer detection. The event is attended by leading specialists from across Europe.
