Rome, November 27 - Italy's health system is
secure, but in future will need to be reorganized, officials
said Tuesday as they tried to soften earlier comments by Premier
Mario Monti.
"The guarantees of the sustainability of the national
health service are not less," said an official statement from
Palazzo Chigi late Tuesday afternoon.
It was trying to clarify earlier comments made by Monti in
Palermo where the premier warned that the sustainability of
Italy's national health system is at risk unless new ways are
found to pay for it.
"The economic crisis has hit everyone and the medical field
is no exception," Monti had said in a videoconference link to
the ceremony for the opening of a centre for biotechnology and
biomedical research in Palermo.
"The future sustainability of national health systems,
including ours which we are proud of, may not be guaranteed
unless new ways are found to finance the services," Monti had
added.
"The stakes are very high".
Officials said the premier was merely suggesting that in
future, it will be necessary "to identify and implement models
for innovative financing and organization of...health services,"
said the statement from Palazzo Chigi.
Monti "has not put in question public funding of the health
system," officials said.
