The Nordic trade associations for medical technology have worked together to increase knowledge
about Health Technology Assessment and Value-Based Procurement amongst suppliers and customers in the Nordics.

Back in 2014, the Nordic trade associations for medical technology set out to help increase the success rate for implementation and commercialisation of new health and welfare technology in the Nordics by creating guidelines and networks.

 

After about three years of hard work, the Nordic Medtech Growth 2 project has delivered on their goals.

 

 

Practical guides


Together, the project partners have made practical guides for both Value-Based Procurement (VBP) documentation and for Health Technology Assessment (HTA) processes, which can be downloaded for free below:

 

The guides help Nordic medtech companies and value chains understand how the Nordic countries are working with Value-Based Procurement and HTA processes in the health sector.

 

 

Creating a large network


The project partners have also conducted and participated in more than 100 conferences, workshops, expert committee’s meetings between the industry, government and health professionals both on Nordic and country level throughout the project period.

 

Through thorough engagement with Nordic healthcare professionals and suppliers, the project partners have managed to build a solid network between the industry, professional heath customers and the government side for Nordic collaboration on HTA and VBP.

 

 

Project background


The Nordic Medtech Growth 2 project was co-financed by Nordic Innovation through the 2014 call for proposals on Innovative Nordic Health and Welfare Solutions. The call was a tool for help uniting and strengthening efforts across the Nordics in order to develop a Nordic ecosystem for health innovation.

 

The project consortium consisted of the following partners:
