Swedish TLV calls for submissions to theme survey on medical technologies in the stroke area

In November 2020, the Swedish Dental and Pharmaceutical Benefits Agency (TLV) launched a theme survey for medical technology products in stroke, focusing on products for diagnostic/assessment in case of suspected stroke.

This theme survey is a part of TLV’s horizon scanning work, which identifies new and innovative technologies that may become important for Swedish healthcare. Horizon scanning commissioned by the Medical Technology Product (MTP) Council is the first step of the national Orderly Introduction process for new MedTech products.

As of November 2020, there is one ongoing theme survey – in the area of stroke. The purpose is to map the medical technology development in the field and to identify new medical devices that may be important for healthcare in the next few years. Manufacturers of medical devices have an opportunity to notify TLV about a new product related to the theme of the survey.

Examples of information that can be provided are:

  • Suggestions for interesting products
  • Ongoing clinical studies
  • Innovation projects

Submissions can be sent via email with registration number 3398/2020.

The deadline for current submissions is December 16, 2020.
