-Demographic evolution shows high immigration, an aging population, increasing chronic
diseases, and increasing levels of poverty.
-Public debt (over 125 percent of the GDP)is expected to rise further in the coming years in spite
of the austerity measures put into place since 2012.

The Healthcare System:

-Healthcare expenditures in Italy represent 9,3 percent of the GDP.
-Healthcare is largely decentralized into the 21 regions, leading to differences in funding, priority
setting and DRG application.
-Public funding needs to be reduced by around 2 Billion € per year until 2015.
-Healthcare in Italy is provided by a mixed public-private system.

Reforms:

- Since 2012 a reform was put into place to reduce healthcare expenditures by 3 to 5 percent.
-The main components of this reform are set at national level and include caps on hospital expenditures, reduction in hospital beds, staff and admissions, etc.
-In addition reforms and innovations are situated at the regional level.
-Reforms have also lead to renegotiation of long term contracts and to a decrease in fees paid to private accredited care providers.

The Markets:

- The hospital market will grow annually from 0 to 1,5 percent over the next 3 years.
- For the following years the healthcare expenditure will be controlled and regulated by caps imposed on hospital pharmaceuticals and medical devices
- This and the push for generics will make the pharmaceutics market of 2013 decrease by -3 to -6 percent per year.
- The caps will reduce the devices market annually by -3 to -5 percent for the coming 2 years.
-Capital equipment was hit by the financial crisis very badly in 2011 and ‘12 and continues to decrease by more than 5 percent.
