Danish Medicines Council

The Danish Medicines Council assesses new hospital medicines and several medicines within the same therapeutic area

The Danish Medicines Council was established on January 1, 2017 by the board of Danish Regions. The Council is based on experiences from the Danish Council for the Use of Expensive Hospital Medicines (RADS) and “Koordineringsrådet for ibrugtagning af sygehusmedicin” (KRIS).

The Danish Medicines Council is to:

  • Ensure fast and homogeneous use of new and existing medicines across hospitals and regions
  • Impose stricter requirements for documentation to support that patients will benefit from new and existing medicines
  • Enhance the basis for Amgros’ price negotiations and calls for tenders. Amgros is the joint procurement service for the Danish regions and is mostly concerned with procurement of medicines for hospital use.
