In order to change a system or a part of it, there is a profound need to actually know, in depth and with accuracy, how it works. Many things have been said, mostly bad ones, about Romanian medical system. Plus, both patients and doctors have growing necessities and complaints, while the population’s need for medical assistance is bigger and bigger. The world is looking towards Romania and the organizations that have a say atan international level are expecting a reaction and solutions to the multitude of problems signaled by various means. Meanwhile, the government continues to obstinately avoid taking the bull by the horns, and more than that, keeps reducing the state financing for the medical sector. The subject of our paper is based on the economic realities of nowdays. Recently,social media and NGOs have been assuming a difficult role: the indirect monitoring of the quality of the services. Same interest in monitoring is shared by UE and different international organizations.
