Guest Manager ROHO

"Thank you for having honored me this year with your invitation to participate in this event. From the health Speaker presentations from both, Romania and abroad, we noticed that the particular concern for quality assurance and the patient safety is gaining ground in the management of public and private hospitals. I believe that in day-to-day work in healthcare facilities, therapeutic protocols and work procedures implemented, define good practices for eliminating clinical risks, combating infections associated with healthcare, and last but not least, a correct and effective diagnosis and treatment of patients."

Guest Physician ROHO

"ROHO is an exceptional idea because it promotes a multidisciplinary approach to existing health systems problems by integrating the managerial aspects needed to address them, as well as addressing issues in a broader, international context. The event attempted to answer questions about healthcare issues, the optimal approach and solution, integrate the situation into a broader, international context, and a forward-looking approach. Both professionals and healthcare managers who attended the event must ultimately have the same goal - improving existing problems."

Guest Manager ROHO

"I attended the Romanian Hospitals Convention since the first edition, attracted by the agenda and the impressive CVs of the guests. The exceptional guests, the information and the socialization opportunities offered, determined me to participate with increased interest each year.

Guest Physician ROHO

”Thank you for the invitation to participate at ROHO 2017 - The Romanian Hospitals Convention, which took place in a very elegant setting, in accordance with the debates. The agenda of the event was very dense, with very current themes in hospital management, calling for our attention and focus. Romanian and foreign speakers have provided a wealth of information about personal managerial experience in various aspects of medical activity, from which the participants were able to extract ideas and solutions applicable to clinical practice. The exhibition and stands organized in the hotel foyer helped me to get some useful information about the state-of-the-art appliances and the various types of software. I believe that ROHO 2017 was a useful meeting that has to be continued because it has shown us that the efforts made to increase the quality of the medical act in the Romanian hospitals are not isolated, they are a part of a European effort to provide health systems efficient and efficient.

Laurențiu Dașcă, MD

Medical Director, Affidea România

Guest Physician ROHO

"In the context of the accreditation of health establishments, as well as the alignment with European standards, the ROHO conference brings to the forefront the issues faced by state or private medical organizations. The concept of the event has evolved this year, bringing together professionals from Romania and abroad who spoke about the importance of clinical governance in the management of medical organizations. I have seen the same issue and orientation in guest presentations from CEE and neighboring countries and I am convinced that the safety and quality of a medical service provided by a medical institution are the most important conditions. They should equally address the structure, staff, and programs of a medical organization in order to have a patient-oriented end result and to provide it with the best experience. ROHO is also important because of the meeting of hospital directors from our country with health professionals from other European countries.

Guest Physician ROHO

"From my point of view, ROHO is a novel idea, an original concept that provides a professional framework for presentations and expert discussions, both with decision makers from the Romanian medical system and with important representatives of the medicine-related industry, as well as possible sponsors and, last but not least, foreign guests from the field, who bring solutions and new ideas for management problems. In addition, the themes discussed are topical, being applicable in both state and private healthcare systems. I think I heard and saw many interesting things last year and this year at ROHO and I will certainly like to attend the next editions. "

I think that such an event puts Romania on the map, as a European country that offers health services to the population, at high quality standards. It is extremely important to share the experience at management level and the opportunity to get to know key people in this field and to establish lasting professional relationships. I particularly appreciated the opportunity to increase the visibility of the private healthcare system before governments, both nationally and internationally, by promoting organizations such as the European Union of Private Hospitals (EUHP).

"The event seemed special to me, with an interesting concept. Perhaps a free discussion session on the issues we face will be also beneficial, issues which are already solved in other countries.

"It was an honor for me to participate at ROHO 2017, a special event that brought together specialists from several countries who came up with solutions to increase the quality of the medical act. The admirable results presented by colleagues from the neighbor countries are based on better funding, efficient and responsible medical management and a judicious use of human and material resources. In Romania, the competition between the public and the private system is becoming clearer. Sustained efforts by managers and health professionals will be needed to have an efficient public system, and such events will bring extra experience.”

Medical Director, Emergency Hospital of Timișoara County

Guest Physician ROHO

“For me, as Medical Director of the Municipal Emergency Hospital of Timișoara, it was an opportunity to come into contact with my colleages from all over Romania, as well as from other countries, and to learn about issues from their hospitals, which can help me improve my knowledge in terms of a better organization of quality management. The organization was exceptional. The presence of speakers such as Dr. Gheorghe Borcean, Prof. Dr Guido Adler, Prof. Dr Diana Cimpoeșu or Holly McLaren gave me real pleasure in listening to them and in ‘borrowing’ new things from them, which we can implement or adapt to our medical system. It was also such a joy and pleasure to learn about the Hospital Room Concept made by Philips, which demonstrated the importance of new equipment for endowing the Emergency and, especially the Anesthesia and Intensive Care services in hospitals. Emergency medicine has an important role in Romania, and the 2nd session approached the more recent challenges in this field, aimed at increasing the quality of the medical service and of saving patients’ lives, both in Romania and abroad. The cardiology, prevention and control session complemented the day harmoniously, with important information from the two fields, and especially from the prevention and control of hospital-acquired infections, which currently requires readjustments in Romania, for the purpose of decreasing the risk of such infections. I congratulate you and I wish you great success for the future!”

Manager, Clinical Hospital of Mureș County

Guest Manager ROHO

“I believe that my participation in ROHO – Romanian Hospital Convention represented a real chance to come into contact with new practices, challenges and opportunities from the field of medical services and management. I strongly believe that only through such types of meetings, which bring together healthcare specialists, hospital managers, foreign experts and leaders in the medical industry, we can find common denominators in developing the healthcare system and in finding solutions to problems with which we are encountered in our daily activity. The discussions with specialists from abroad were beneficial because the experience of other European states can serve as guidelines for the Romanian medical system. The event organized this year was characterized by professionalism, good choice of speakers and special attention paid to each participant.”

Marius Pascu, MD

Guest Physician ROHO

“In this edition of ROHO, I equally appreciated the topics of the convention, the prestige of the guests, as well as the activities organized by Philips in promoting state-of-the-art equipment that can be used to equip modern hospitals. It is a pleasure to find out novelties about the medical systems from neighboring countries, from which we still have a lot to learn. It was also an opportunity for the skeptics to recognize, based on statistical data, that the Romanian medical system did not stand still either in the past years, that it has made progress in many fields. Hoping that the ideas drawn from the general topics of the conference will be implemented through measures meant to add value and quality to the medical service, in general, and especially from the public system, I will attend the next edition with great pleasure and interest.”

Guest Physician ROHO

“The organization was highly appreciated by all participants, and the subjects approached touched on various aspects of the medical activity. Thus, from Gheorghe Borcean, MD, President of the Romanian College of Physicians, who presented the main problems of our healthcare system, I realized that this forum is concerned with the difficult situations with which those who work today in the system are confronted. Dr. Juliusz Jakubaszko has presented the state of emergency medicine in Poland, which is very similar to ours. Prof.Dr. Guido Adler has presented the organization of one of the most important hospitals in Germany, i.e. the one from Heidelberg. Hospital Room Concept by Philips was a pleasant surprise, presenting the current technological possibilities for each state of the long and difficult path of healthcare, starting from prevention and ending with home care, after discharge. The meeting was highly useful and we are looking forward to the next edition.”

“The international participation, with foreign professionals who shared their own experiences with medical services was very interesting and useful. The Romanian College of Physicians was actively involved in the convention, proving its openess to applying new protocols aimed at improving the quality of medical services. I took part in an extremely valuable event, both in terms of the location chosen, but especially of the concept of the event.

ROHO offered medical directors and heads of clinical departments present at the meeting the possibility to listen to and observe new recommendations regarding the quality of medical services.”

Lucian Alexe

Manager, Caritas Municipal Hospital, Roșiorii de Vede, Teleorman

Guest Manager ROHO

“ROHO has met our expectations, the expectations of what the system needs: quality and performance. I discovered enthusiastic people who want to make a change, a radical change, by taking into account the interests of the patients, as well as those of the specialists. A major change can occur through communication, through the participation, at the top, of all stakeholders who are relevant in the healthcare system, but also through political will. The meeting with professionals from other European countries is just as important for us, due to the fact that we can discover a high-standard model in the European healthcare system that we can also implement in Romanian hospitals. It is my belief that ROHO must continue. The convention is absolutely necessary for all of us. This meeting makes it possible to make the problems that linger in the system transparent, it ensures continuous communication, cooperation, it can change outdated mentalities and processes, in order to achieve what we have all been waiting for, for a long time - change!

Guest Physician ROHO

“The concept of the event doesn’t need to be further commented upon, we need such a thing, the idea must be developed. The European experience cannot be ignored because, in fact, this is our target, to have the same standards. I was pleasantly impressed by the Belgian and German experience, not just by their medical schools, because I was familiar with them, but also by the speakers’ charisma. I would like to congratulate you; I believe that plenty had been achieved this year, but the bar must remain high, for
our own experience and practice.”

Eugen Sârbu, MD

Head Physician within the Emergency Unit, Clinical Emergency Hospital of Reșița County

Guest Physician ROHO

“The importance of the subjects approached within this wide-scale international event, centered around the quality of medical services, made me want to participate in ROHO 2016. The presence of over 300 leaders of the medical profession, leaders of the technological industry, offering modern solutions in healthcare, proves the effectiveness of the concept underlying the organization of this event, namely communication and information about the best medical practices, with successful examples and solutions for the quality of medical services. Given that it is my specialty, emergency medicine was the main point of interest for me. The participation of Prof. dr. Juliusz Jakubaszko, the European Director of the International Federation for Emergency Medicine, was a peak moment for the emergency physicians present at the convention. The meeting of specialists in the field, who approached and discussed the problems specific to our specialty, all in conjunction with the presence of those who offer solutions for integrated data management, for diagnostic precision and for the continuous monitoring of patients - all had a special significance in deepening and appropriating mutual experiences in view of streamlining the functioning of emergency departments.”

Corina Marin, MD

Medical Director, MEDICOVER România, Galați

Guest Manager ROHO

“The participation in ROHO 2016 was a first in my medical career. The extremely interesting subjects approached revealed a side of the medical profession which is unknown, or ignored by the patients we are serving, namely the constant concern to improve the investigation possibilities in Romanian hospitals. I met many remarkable personalities of Romanian medicine, who practically dedicated their entire life to healing people. Once more, they are currently fighting to overcome some of the bureaucratic barriers that hinder the promotion of ideas that are able to change the perception about Romanian medicine. The exchange of experience with managers of prestigious European medical units contributed to a better understanding of the manner of approaching management-related issues.”

Guest Physician ROHO

“ROHO offers the opportunity to meet, face to face, head of sections, people who are confronted, on a daily basis, with real situations, who work “in the field”, who know what they have and what they still need, and, on the other hand, with hospital managers, those who can understand the real need and have the necessary means to address these challenges. I salute the initiative of the meeting with other foreign healthcare professionals – we must always be open, informed, analyze their experience, both positive and negative, and adapt to what happens around us, to practical realities, with which we are each confronted in our place of work. I am looking forward to ROHO 2017.”

"ROHO has become an important milestone on the agenda of events that any hospital manager wishes to participate in. Presentations are quality models of the medical act.
