MedTech Pricing and Reimbursement System webinar
MedTech products’ pricing and reimbursement (P&R) processes, if any, vary widely across Europe and for example in the United States. In addition, market access routes for MedTech products differs and this also applies to private and public sector practices by country.
The awareness of these issues is important as companies may face many challenges in this field. Therefore, you are welcome to join this webinar dedicated to both Medical Device, In Vitro Diagnostic and eHealth related products.
Knowledge of price and reimbursement issues are an essential part of a company’s sales and marketing activities. As pricing and reimbursement systems differ significantly between countries, the webinar presents Finland, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and the United States as examples.
This webinar is intended for start-ups and R&D companies who need information on various market entry routes and channels that may involve Health technology assessment (HTA) and reimbursement of healthcare systems. The webinar is also for companies that want to expand their understanding of systems in different countries.
