Intrenched technologies often lead to a focus on incremental innovation. However, sometimes, radical innovations will allow bold thinkers to leapfrog outdated technologies and mindsets. This webinar will discuss if CEE countries have an opportunity to harness state-of-the-art technology to bypass legacy process and begin sharing health data to improve patient access to needed new therapies.

  • How could Central and Eastern European countries implement new technology and processes to harness patient data more effectively? What EU funding mechanisms and programmes currently exist to facilitate this?
  • What tools do we need in the EU to solve the efficacy vs. effectiveness gap (i.e. the widening requirements between EMA and member state HTAs/Payers)?
  • What role do patients need to play in facilitating a better understanding of patient reported outcomes (Quality of Life Assessments) and data sharing, and how can this information be incorporated into member state decision making? Are there EU platforms that could be used now?
