As part of MedTech Week 2017 initiative, Mecomed will be conducting a training workshop on the MEAT Value-Based Procurement (VBP), held in cooperation with MedTech Europe in Dubai.
The audience will thus understand the background and use of the MEAT Value-Based Procurement throughout the tender process. There will also be a practical case of the usage of the MEAT Excel tool and the acquisition of the necessary expertise to present it to other stakeholders and a full update on the MEAT VBP project 2017-2018 implementation plan e.g., events, pilots etc.
Yves Verboven, Market Access and Economic Policies Director at MedTech Europe will lead the training.
An event summary will be available in the week of 19-23 June.

MECOMED—MEAT Value-Based Procurement Workshop: 12 June 2017, Dubai
Trainer: Yves VERBOVEN, Director Market Access and Economic Policies, MEDTECH EUROPE
Participants: 30 (28 Mecomed members from 14 companies and 2 hospital procurers from KSA)
The training was based on the updated version of the MEAT Excel tool and guidelines. The participants explored the background and principles of the Value-Based Procurement and experimented with the MEAT Excel tool.
The workshop generated a lot of interest within Mecomed members, as well as hospital procurers. One of the leading hospitals in Saudi Arabia is currently considering engaging as a pilot experimenter and would like to assess the tool on a recently issued tender for OR supplies.
All participants will take ambassadors’ role for promoting Value- Based Procurement within their companies and to healthcare accounts in the MENA region.
