Denmark is an attractive market for innovative medical device companies.

Reimbursement (procedure coding and DRG system) has a limited role in market access for medical technologies, as DRG contributes to only small portion of total hospital revenue. Furthermore, global budget payment to hospitals also makes reimbursement challenge less relevant compared with other European countries. Highly specialized services are paid on the basis on real cost of the procedure (vary by region).

We offer a seminar on critical elements of the hospital reimbursement system for medical devices in Denmark that can guide your decision-making about the introduction of novel technologies into this market.

What topics are reviewed?

Key stakeholders and their role in reimbursement processes

Key stakeholders are reviewed, including payers, policy-makers, advising organizations (health technology assessment) and support bodies (developer of procedural classification/DRG system)

Money flow and distribution of funds, an overview of the hospital payment system (DRG system and global budget), the process of development of the DRG system

Funding and health technology assessment landscape

What topics are not covered?

Some topics are not specifically covered in this seminar: reimbursement model in out-patient settings, reimbursement for medical aids (devices for home use) and in-vitro diagnostic tests, funding of capital equipment.
