This article was originally published in Clinica
The Danish association of county councils (Amtsradsforeningen) and the Danish medical device industry association (Medicoindustrien) are to co-operate on a project to encourage electronic purchasing within the hospital sector. Amtsradsforeningen, which partially finances the hospital sector, will sponsor the project, which is aimed at creating unified standards and principles for e-commerce between the counties and suppliers, to the tune of DKr4m ($526,000). Medicoindustrien is to donate DKr1m for the project.
