Medical Technology Registries: Six Key Principles

In this paper MedTech Europe suggests six key principles that should apply when European public health authorities request to collect registry/real-world data through means of registries to inform healthcare decisions (e.g. reimbursement, coverage with evidence development, population/sub-population access). We believe that by following these principles, applicable European regulations and national laws, the quality, acceptability, efficiency of collecting and analysing this data can improve research and decision making.
