The power of information in diagnostics

Webinar put the spotlight on the value of diagnostic information ‘in the new normal’

Health-related information is a key enabler of sustainable, value-driven healthcare delivery. Diagnostic information is critical to modern healthcare and, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, has a major role to play in returning to the ‘new normal’.

Diagnostic tests have been essential to governments’ efforts to contain the pandemic and re-start economies. However, the value of diagnostic information (VODI) is not always reflected in the way they are reimbursed. Rather than looking at the value they bring, in-vitro diagnostics (IVDs) are reimbursed based on the cost of test kits or equipment used to analyse samples.

To explore the VODI in greater depth, MedTech Europe hosted a webinar on 7 October (view link) with the participation of external stakeholders active in the healthcare sector. The event was an opportunity to discuss how healthcare systems in Europe can harness information to become more resilient in combating both acute, infectious diseases as well as chronic conditions.

Participants had the opportunity to discuss a series of case studies looking at the role of IVDs in a number of areas, including heart failure and acute respiratory infections.

In a world where information is power, expect VODI to remain in the spotlight in the post-COVID era.
