The report presents an analysis of the public and non-public hospital market, including private and transformed hospitals, in Poland, based on PMR's own data. The next, 8th edition of PMR's proprietary report examines current and future trends and legislation, which are discussed together with PMR experts' assessment of their impact on the market. An important part of the publication is the analysis of saturation with services in the hospital sector, by voivodship and major cities. The report contains essential information about the digitisation of hospitals and their adaptation to the requirements of other laws and regulations. It presents the most pressing problems and opportunities for the sector from the point of view of practitioners: the management of over 200 hospitals among which PMR conducted its survey. 

An important part of the report is the dataset of public and non-public hospitals in Poland containing detailed and up-to-date information on individual hospitals. The data on the hospitals are presented in a convenient Excel file format and cover bed count by ward in each hospital, the amount of the contract for hospital treatment with the National Health Fund, financial data of the hospitals, as well as contact details of those facilities.

The package includes the Excel file with the most important data from the report, allowing an analysis/aggregation of the data, and the executive summary of the report presented as a PowerPoint presentation containing charts/graphics.
