Establishing a nationwide unified procurement platform of drugs

December 2nd, 2019 | by

On November 29th, the National Health Commission issued the “Notification on Measures of Deepening the Reform of the Medical and Healthcare System depending on the Centralised Procurement and Use of Drugs.” The “Notification” emphasised that a nationwide unified procurement platform based on provincial centralised procurement platforms should be established, in which the drug codes and procurement standards should be unified so that the drug price can be linked together nationwide. In addition, corporate groups, integrated healthcare organisations, private medical institutions, and pharmacies are encouraged to implement centralised procurement to develop a pricing system that depends on the market. The “Notification” also stipulated that the medical insurance administrative agencies instead of hospitals should pay for the drugs to manufacturers and distributors directly.
