For this reason, it is expected that at the organized market consultation event, the interested companies can present innovative solutions which contribute to the improvement of these requirements:

    • Provide clinical benefits, demonstrable costs and resources
    • Have the potential to be applicable to other areas of elective surgery
    • Comply with all necessary standards in relation to quality, approvals, ethics and data protection, interoperability, etc.
