European Harmonization of clinical evaluation of digital medical devices

To harmonise the innovative health technology assessment procedures across Europe, a European Taskforce has been generated by France, Germany, coordinated by EIT Health and co-chaired  by EUnetHTA, with the overall goal of enabling a joint approach for European access to reimbursement for digital medical devices (DMDs). 

The Taskforce – composed of academic experts, policy makers and representatives of national competent authorities – is committed to harmonise the taxonomy of the digital medical devices, evidence criteria and (re-)assessment methodologies in order to support Europe-wide patient access to DMDs through reimbursement.

This session will feature a proposed framework to operationalise a harmonised regulatory and assessments framework across Europe with a special focus on (A) the conceptual clarity around DMDs, (B) the evidence criteria for technology assessment and (C) the healthcare system integration & social acceptance evaluation framework.
