P 14086 - Nordic Medtech Growth 2


From 01/01/2015
To 31/12/2017

Nordic Medtech Growth 2 is a project focusing on health economic evaluation in public procurement. The Nordic trade associations for medical technology and their members have broad experience with delivering devices, therapies and solutions to the specialist and primary healthcare services in the Nordic countries.


With this background the trade associations formed a Nordic project that aims to not just take the perspective of suppliers of medical technologies, but cooperate with relevant authorities and customers to provide the patients with the best therapies available.


The project will build networks and new arenas for collaboration to increase focus on health economics. The deliverables of the project is practical guides to HTA processes and health economic evaluation in public procurement in the Nordic countries.



  • Develop a common Nordic, practical guide for health economic documentation in relation to public purchasing in hospitals and primary healthcare services
  • Draft a common Nordic, practical guide for HTA processes as a tool to implement new products and procedures at hospitals
  • Establish a common Nordic arena for dialogue and exchange of competencies in the field of health economy
