I take this opportunity to sincerely thank all our members for their enormous efforts in making the role of medical technologies more widely known during MedTech Week 2018 last June.

Now in it's fourth year, MedTech Week brings out the best in the companies and national associations that represent our industry. Together, they have served up dozens of examples in unwavering ingenuity to illustrate the value of medtech.

Digital health will boost patient safety and tackle infection control

In the fast-moving world of modern healthcare, patient safety is paramount. eHealth technologies can help to monitor patient safety, while digital surgery promises to make operations safer and more precise.

The future of digital health devices was among the topics addressed at the German Capital Congress ‘Medicine & Health’. Among the speakers were senior representatives from J&J which was a partner of the congress. They discuss subjects ranging from smoking cessation and obesity to infection control and the company’s 30 years of support for the charity organization Operation Smile.

Throughout the event, digital health was a recurring theme. Jens Spahn, Minister of health, Germany, echoed the call for a focus on digital tools, adding that a clear path to market is needed to incentivize innovative companies.‘We want to be at the forefront of digitising healthcare,’ he said. ‘For providers of digital solutions, legal certainty must be created for the approval of medical device and for health insurance reimbursement.’
