On September 20, 2021, Swedish Medical Technologies Product (MTP) Council announced ongoing horizon scanning for medical technology products used in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) within the Orderly introduction framework.

This framework aimed to manage the national introduction of novel technologies is permanent from the beginning of 2020. This is a staged process, including horizon scanning, selection of the method for evaluation, the decision on national collaboration, health economic evaluation, and recommendations by MTP Council to regions about the introduction of the method and criteria for use.

As a horizon scanning stage, the Dental and Pharmaceutical Benefits Agency (TLV) is conducting a thematic survey for technologies in obstructive pulmonary diseases. Products of interest should support the patient's self-monitoring and can be integrated with a treatment plan.

The application form is available in English and Swedish. The completed application form should be submitted to email fredrik.tamsen@tlv.se. The deadline is October 15, 2021.

The full details in Swedish can be found here.
