European Healthcare Value Chain Network

The European Healthcare Value Chain Network (EHVCN)

The EHVCN dedicates itself to a new way of thinking about healthcare: the patient-centred approach. It considers that all medical care should respect individual patient needs, preferences and values and focuses on outcomes of treatments rather than inputs. 


The provision of medicines is a crucial component in providing efficient patient-centric care. Ensuring that patients receive the right treatment at the right time, requires a complex and carefully organised value chain of products blended with services. As such, stakeholders in the value chain (pharmaceutical specialty, branded and generic industries, full-service healthcare distributors and healthcare providers) are bound into a complex and dynamic chain that has patients’ wellbeing at their very core. 


Members of the EHVCN understand that collaboration in the healthcare sector has never been as important as today. Increased collaboration brings new opportunities, sustainability and new business models and can help deliver meaningful solutions catering for a patient-focused approach and better outcomes in care.
