VODI in Acute Respiratory Infections – Observations from the COVID-19 pandemic’
Posted on 05.05.2021
The MedTech Forum 2021 was a great opportunity to launch MedTech Europe case study on ‘The Value of Diagnostic Information in Acute Respiratory Infections – Observations from the COVID-19 pandemic’.
By carving out the value of diagnostic information in acute respiratory infections, it highlights the need for appropriate policy actions to unlock the full potential of diagnostic information in times of public health crises – such as COVID-19 pandemic – and beyond.
With this case study, MedTech Europe would like to outline suggestions to:
- Enhance integration of In vitro Diagnostics (IVDs) information in healthcare systems
- Raise awareness of IVDs through multi-stakeholder engagement at EU and national level
- Build an enabling ecosystem that recognises and rewards the value of diagnostic information and hence incentivises future IVD innovation.
The content of the case study has been developed according to the evidence available at the time of writing and represents a starting point that could be further improved in the future.
