Theme survey on technologies for lung or colorectal cancer launched by Swedish TLV

On October 31, 2022, the Dental and Pharmaceutical Benefits Agency (TLV) initiated conducting a theme survey for technologies used for the diagnosis or treatment of lung or colorectal cancer.

The purpose of the theme survey is to map the medical technology development in the field and to identify new medical technologies that may be important for healthcare in the next few years. This horizon scanning activity, commissioned by the Medical Technology Product (MTP) Council to TLV, is the first step of the national Orderly Introduction process for new medical technologies.

The manufacturers of medical devices have an opportunity to notify TLV about a new technology related to the theme of the survey. The notification form is available on the TLV website and should be submitted to no later than November 22, 2022. The results of the theme survey will be compiled for the preparation group in December 2022, which will help further decision-making.

More details, as well as the notification form, can be found in Swedish here.
