Health Talks: Health Technology Assessment

Organisers: OuluHealth and Terkko Health Hub

During the webinar, you will learn about health technology assessment (HTA) and the new standard for health & wellness apps.

DigiHealth HUB at the University of Oulu - Faculty of Medicine together with the Finnish Coordinating Center for Health Technology Assessment (FinCCHTA) has developed new assessment methods called Digi-HTA for healthcare digital solutions, as the current assessment process does not fully consider the specific needs of new technical solutions. In developing the assessment methods, the perspective of companies is particularly taken into consideration.

The standardization communities in CEN, CENELEC, ISO and IEC on health and wellness apps have jointly developed technical specification of Health software - Part 2: Health and wellness apps - Quality and reliability (ISO/DTS 82304-2:2021). This will provide a set of requirements for developers of health and wellness apps, intending to meet the needs of health care professionals, patients, carers and the wider public.

Eteen tulee kumppaneiden etsintä, arviointi, valinta, yhteistoiminnan käynnistys ja seuranta. Erilaiset sopimusmallit tulee ymmärtää ja niissä on otettava huomioon kumppanuuden muoto ja oman toiminnan ja toimialan erityispiirteet.

Terveys- ja hyvinvointialan vientikauppaa tekevät tai vientiä suunnittelevat yritykset: Tule mukaan Business Finlandin webinaariin kuulemaan kahden johtavan terveysalan organisaation kokemuksia kanavan perustamisen ja johtamisen keskeisistä kysymyksistä.
