Ladies and Gentlemen,

On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the Scientific Conference, organized under the auspices of the Journal of Health Policy & Outcomes Research (JHPOR), entitled: "Patients Registries - the role of the health system, new trends and hopes for Polish patients."


The conference will be held on 19th of March 2015 at the Hotel Radisson Blu Sobieski in Warsaw.



Patients Registries are collected data, based on a standardized description of the patient and identification of method used for the procedure, in order to determine the specific effects in the study population. Measured effects can affect different areas: health outcomes, therapeutics or medicine policy, and even the sociology of patients’ behavior.  May Patients Records improve the functioning of health care? Can we get more benefits from Patient Registries in Poland? How do other countries use this knowledge? For these and other questions, jointly with international experts and representatives of Polish health institutions, we will seek answers and solutions. Our conference will end with the postulate of the "seven milestones", presenting recommendations for role of Patient Registries functioning in Poland. We believe that the planned Conference will begin a wider discussion on the role and future of the Patient Registry.



Sincerely, Prof. Karina Jahnz-Różyk
The President of Scientific Committee
