Read about MedTech20© in Dagens Medicin:
The MedTech20© is a new instrument for measuring patient benefits of medical devices. MedTech20© constitutes a common measurement scale for various medical devices used in a wide range of diseases and disabilities and is the first of its kind.
MedTech20© is designed to facilitate comparisons of the patient-perceived benefit between products as well as across product categories. The aim is to assist in future health care decision-making regarding medical devices, as well as in the development of new medical devices.
The MedTech20© instrument was introduced in 2017, developed by researchers at PharmaLex Sweden AB (formerly Nordic Health Economics), Gothenburg, Sweden.
The instrument is applicable for evaluations of all types of medical devices used by patients with any type of disease or disability, and can be applied at various phases of the device’s life cycle.
The instrument may be applied during early product development to assess the potential value of the medical device from a regulatory and a health care perspective.
