Swedish TLV’s last call for the ongoing theme survey submissions for orderly introduction for medical technologies
The Swedish Dental and Pharmaceutical Benefits Agency (TLV) is currently performing a theme survey for medical technology products for ischemic heart disease and heart failure.
Theme surveys are 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 August 2020, there is one ongoing theme survey – in the areas of ischemic heart disease and heart failure. 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, with a focus on medical devices in diagnostics and monitoring (including home monitoring).
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with registration number 1769/2020.
The deadline for current submissions is August 21, 2020.
