There is a large need for new solutions and services in the Nordic and global health system to secure a sustainable health service and society. New technology and solutions are available; however, the adoption is very slow, with the consequence of patients not getting the possible updated health treatment and service.
What are the main barriers to faster adoption of new health technology and services, and how can we solve them?
We invite health tech companies, policy makers and health care professionals to a half day workshop on the need for a change in how the health sector can support and secure faster and successful implementation of new technologies and health services. By addressing the challenges and opportunities, the role of both the procurer, regulator, provider and industry, and how we through active and targeted collaboration can speed up the development, evaluation and adoption, and at the same time be harmonized with Health Technology Assessments, clinical practice guidelines and downstream implementation in health care practice at the Nordic and global level.
