USA Next Health Industry Roadmap – your pathway to success in the world’s biggest market

The United States stands at the forefront of health innovation, presenting immense opportunities. However, navigating this dynamic landscape requires strategic insights and support. USA Next is the first-ever joint collaboration amongst Norway’s health clusters, dedicated to empowering Norwegian companies in their journey to the U.S. market. These include: Norway Health Tech, Norwegian Smart Care Cluster, The Life Science Cluster, and Oslo Cancer Cluster.

Over the past two years, the clusters, supported by Viken Fylkeskommune and in partnership with Innovation Norway, have worked to develop a tailored roadmap for the health & life science industry in Norway. This roadmap serves as your compass through the intricacies of the U.S., providing insights into regional strengths, diverse health systems, patient demographics, federal and state programs, reimbursement schemes, validation processes, the regulatory landscape, and whom to contact depending upon your needs.

As a member of one of the health clusters, you automatically gain access to this invaluable Roadmap by entering your information here, after which a copy will be sent directly to you.

If you’re not yet part of the health cluster system, please fill out your information and we will contact you to make sure you receive your copy of the Roadmap and to see whether we can further support your journey. You can use the same link here.

Your journey to success begins with informed decisions – let’s explore the possibilities together!
