Educational materials on Med Tech market access in Europe

General introduction and country-specific seminars about market access for medical devices and IVD tests

Since 2017, MTRC has maintained detailed overviews of reimbursement systems for medical technologies at the European level and at the level of individual countries. We use these overviews to train new analysts in the company and to be a single placeholder of all relevant information about our core knowledge about a particular country or topic. 

European countries have a complex market access landscape for medical technologies. Elements of market access include reimbursement (coding, payment mechanism, reimbursement tariffs), funding (post-reimbursement approval by payers or approval for coverage by national decision-makers), and health technology assessment.

Market access varies depending on the type of technology (implants, invasive and non-invasive devices, capital equipment, in-vitro diagnostic test, health apps, AI technologies, digital platforms, medical aids) and types of settings (hospital, day case, ambulatory, home care). 

More than 70 presentations are available to our clients to provide an overview of market access for medical devices, medical aids, IVD tests, and health apps at the EU level and in individual countries. These presentations are usually accessed by those new to the topic of Med Tech market access to boost their knowledge or to educate large groups of internal stakeholders. 

What materials are available?

We maintain a wide range of general, EU-level introductory, and in-depth country-specific presentations (PowerPoint, delivered in PDF format) to address any needs of our clients in educational materials on the topic of market access.
