In December 2021, the Dental and Pharmaceutical Benefits Agency (TLV) finished the theme survey in the obstructive pulmonary diseases field, which was conducted as a part of the Orderly Introduction of Medical Technologies framework.

The main objective of the theme survey is to map the medical technology development in the obstructive pulmonary diseases area and identify new medical technologies that could become important for health care in the coming years. Identified technologies could potentially be included in the Orderly Introduction of Medical Technologies framework, which aims to facilitate the introduction of novel technologies on the national level. Technologies selected will undergo a health economic evaluation by TLV and will receive recommendations for introduction by the Medical Technologies Product (MTP) Council.
