Medical Delta Café - How to get to the finish line with healthcare innovations?

Technological solutions for sustainable healthcare - from molecule to reimbursement: Medical Delta’s mission comprises the entire innovation journey. However, on this long and challenging road several hurdles often turn out to be too high. As a consequence, promising medical innovations don’t always make it all the way to the finish line.

How come? And what can researchers and companies do themselves to increase the chances that their future innovations eventually turn into actual healthcare solutions, embraced by doctors and other professionals, healthcare institutions, policy makers and, of course, patients?

At this Medical Delta Café, we will look into these questions, together with experts and based on recognisable examples from everyday practice.
