LIF, de forskande läkemedelsföretagens intresseförening invigde i torsdags, den 17e mars, sina nya lokaler på Sveavägen 63 i centrala Stockholm och vi var naturligtvis där.

LIFs VD Anders Blanck inledde med att berätta om hur de vill att de nya lokalerna ska kunna vara en mötesplats för alla som vill diskutera samverkan på vårdområdet, förutom kontor finns ett antal stora och små mötesrum att hyra. Dessutom står några arbetsplatser till förfogande för den som kanske är tillfälligt i stan och behöver en tillfällig kontorsplats i stimulerande miljö så LIF hoppas att så många som möjligt utnyttjar denna möjlighet.

LIF delar redan de här lokalerna med flera andra organisationer, IML, Leading Health Care, Swecare och Läkemedelsförsäkringen och fler kommer flytta in när nuvarande två våningsplan snart blir tre.

Politiken är en avgörande länk för att få samverkan att fungera och på invigningen representerades Socialdepartementet av Statssekreterare Agneta Karlsson som bland annat ville betona regeringens uttalade ambition att Sverige ska vara världsbäst på Life Science och att samverkan mellan alla tänkbara aktörer och på alla möjliga nivåer är helt nödvändigt för att nå det målet. Alla representanter instämde helhjärtat!

Life Science-organisationer knyter samarbetsband

Sen var det dags för Statssekreteraren att klippa bandet men för att symbolisera denna gemensamma vilja till samverkan fick alla representanter istället varsin del av bandet som de gemensamt knöt ihop till ett helt.

LIF – the research-based pharmaceutical companies’ association – inaugurated their new premises at Sveavägen 63 in central Stockholm. Of course we were there.

LIF President Anders Blanck began the inauguration by presenting the new premises as the new meeting place for anyone who wants to discuss cooperation in the healthcare field, plus a selection of offices as well as large and small meeting rooms to rent. There will also be temporary workstations available for visitors – and LIF sincerely hope that many will take advantage of the stimulating environment that the new space can offer.

LIF already share these premises with several other organisations, such as IML, Leading Health Care, Swecare and Pharmaceutical Insurance with more to move in once the current two floors
become three.

A highlight of the inauguration was the presence of Agneta Karlsson, Swedish State Secretary.
On behalf of the Swedish government she expressed the ambition for Sweden to become world leaders in Life Science, and stressed the need for all key individuals on every possible level to cooperate in order to achieve this goal. Not surprisingly, all representatives agreed wholeheartedly!

After which it was time for the State Secretary to cut the inaugural ribbon, however the ribbon was cut into several pieces for each representative and then tied back together again in order to symbolise unified ambition as well as cooperation.

Collaboration is the key to a more holistic view and good health economics and the pharmaceutical industry should be a key player in this. At the same time, it may be high time for the pharmaceutical industry to revise not only its own strategies, but also its self image: To dare to stand for and communicate what the industry actually does and can do in the future. These are some of the results of this year’s industry study conducted by Opticom International Research in collaboration with the Pharma Industry and LIF.

Opticom International Research has since 2010 every year conducted a study in the Swedish pharmaceutical industry in collaboration with Pharma Industry, where people working in the pharmaceutical industry will offer their opinions and predictions for the industry. Since 2012, LIF (the trade association for the research-based pharmaceutical industry in Sweden) has also participated in conducting the study. The aim of the study is to identify the industry’s perception of itself and the perception of its role within the Swedish health care system in order to identify both opportunities and threats for the future.

Opticom attended Läkemedelsdagen 2014 at Nalen where the road to a more equal health care for all was in focus.

Ordnat införande, horizon scanning and structured follow-up were topics that were presented and discussed. In the panel discussions where Anders Blanck, LIF, Hans Karlsson, SKL, Heidi Stensmyren, Läkarförbundet and Calle Waller, Prostatacancerförbundet participated, critiscism was expressed against the models’ focus to be more on order and structure and follow-up and very little on introduction.

There are different roads to take, either you can act in the existing systems, i.e. to do something that may not be good, but at least better than what is done today or you can do something new and make a difference. Representatives for the industry, patients and clinics consider “ordnat införande” to be a far too weak effort and point out there is a greater need for speed that cannot be accommodated in the current systems.

During the day more criticism was expressed towards the current health care system in Sweden:
“Today we have a very weak uptake of new drugs in Sweden and that is a major issue. Many believe we still have a growing budget for pharmaceuticas in Sweden, but this belief is wrong, this budget has not increased in many years.” (Robert Ström, LIF)

“There is a lot of money that is used wrongly in the health care system in Sweden. If we would use the money in the right way, we would not need any private health insurances. Just to move a recycle bin for batteries 2 meters can save hours for health care personnel and before we have looked at all these kinds of improvements, I think we should not start to discuss private health insurances.” (Barbro Westerholm (FP), member of parliament)
