The Risk Financing and Insurance Division has published recommended standards for contract risk management, which apply to the different scenarios that most procurement managers, contract specialists or leasing agents are likely to face. In general, the most fundamental risk management tool that university buyers can and should use when entering into an agreement is to select and thoroughly monitor their counterparties to ensure that they have the means and capabilities to provide the desired goods or provide the agreed level of service. In addition, those who would develop and/or negotiate agreements should consider these attributes as standard practice for all contracts (2): McKee S. NICE advocates a common risk system for Velcade.

In order to learn more about risk-sharing agreements in the Spanish context, the aim of this study is to analyse the degree of implementation of risk-sharing agreements and the relevance of several factors that condition their use, as perceived by hospital pharmacists responsible for their design and follow-up.
We are also looking at whether risk-sharing agreements can encourage the introduction of personalized medicines and vice versa. The results of this analysis shed light on the current situation of risk-sharing contracts in Spain and the prospects for their future development. Similarly, the study highlights the key elements that guide the management of these agreements. To date, the empirical literature on risk-sharing contracts has focused on the relevance of several elements that characterize these contracts, as perceived by different stakeholders, in particular because of the lack of information related to the confidentiality of contractual clauses. However, we believe that a more accurate understanding of the variables and related factors that influence these contracts should be directly inferred from the evaluation of actual contracts and a description of their financial and health outcomes.
