Portugal offers a relatively easy introduction of novel medical technologies into its healthcare system; however, budgetary concerns exist.

Hospitals are primarily funded using a global budget principle, with adjustments using a DRG system. The reimbursement system is relatively static. The role of health technology assessment is growing, but currently, it plays a very limited role in the introduction of medical technologies.

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