The implementation of the MDR is still the focus of the industry: Central elements such as EUDAMED are not yet provided, the number and availability of the notified bodies is limited. There are considerable uncertainties regarding the data required for the clinical evaluation and its collection, especially when it comes to so-called legacy or orphan devices. In this session, recognized experts provide information on the current regulations. In this session, recognized experts provide information on the current regulations and illustrate how to master the manifold challenges.

The corona pandemic, the delivery of products from various countries and the attack of Russia on Ukraine brought new challenges into the supplier market. The availability of products is not guaranteed, the prices change in raw material and also processes, management, and energy. This requires new solutions and management of the supply chain. To ensure the production in time with the highest needed quality requires a regional concept with global partnerships. A review of the past years and an outlook how to manage production and operation without compromises in quality will be discussed.

Augmented Reality was introduced a few decades ago as a promising technology to overlay the view of the real world with virtual, computer rendered objects. After almost three decades of research and development, applications in medicine are established and more and more solutions find its way into clinical support – training and further education as well as general guidance with work processes. The clinical perspective will be the focus of this session and the technology of localization, estimation of the pose, the rendering of 3D scenes and general computer vision technology applying also artificial intelligence will be presented and discussed. What is already used in surgery, and what is the potential for telemedicine? The session will provide insights.

Digitalization is changing the way medicine is applied. Evidence-based medicine is replacing eminence-based medicine. However, the introduction of data-driven solutions and digital tools requires change management to be successful in diagnosis and therapy. What is required to support the success of digital tools for better outcome? What are the roadblocks in current procedures? Who needs to lead the change? With digital health solutions, electronic patient files and patient platforms, we have technical solutions that are still waiting for their broad acceptance and everyday use. It is time to recognize that our current interpretation of data processing puts more people and patients at risk than it protects.

Up to now, clinical robotics with all its advantages and disadvantages has mostly been viewed as an isolated topic. One of the most frequently mentioned disadvantages is the cost-intensive technology and the lack of financing options, especially through reimbursement. Which possible reimbursement, financing models and paths would be conceivable if clinical robotics were not viewed as a stand-alone topic, but rather as an integral part of quality assurance in patient care in the long term? Ideas, possibilities and requirements will be discussed in this session using the German healthcare market as an example.

The availability of sensors and platforms raises the possibilities of diagnostics and prevention to a whole new level. Artificial intelligence is an essential part of this in order to use the data volumes generated by various sensors. While the technologies such as sensors and algorithms are widely available, the path to their use in daily routine poses some challenges not only in terms of regulation but also in terms of reimbursement. The session will provide an overview of sensor-based diagnostics technology, the legal framework in the EU and the US, use cases for digital diagnostics, and user needs and perspectives.

The European Health Data Space has been presented and will become a reality in the coming years. In addition to the regulation for the use of data for health care, the so-called primary use, the data room also envisages use for science and industry, the so-called secondary use. How will this data room be implemented? How can it be accessed? Can „real world“ evidence data be accessed for research, development and market monitoring, which is also required in the context of regulation? The session will provide an update on the national and EU framework, show examples of implementation and highlight the challenges in implementation.

The supply chain in medical technology is responsible for over 70% of the emissions of the healthcare sector. In Germany, that means 26 million t CO2 equivalents, which correspond to 3.9% of the total emissions in Germany. At the same time, we have a resource problem: fossil resources are becoming increasingly scarce and global crisis like chaos in the Suez Canal, pandemics and wars are paralyzing supply chains. This leads to a deterioration in health care due to shortages in supply and increased risks of global supply chains. This session will discuss questions like: How can the medical supply chain become more resilient? How can this sector close loops and strive for a circular economy to overcome those crises? How can we identify the waste of resources in the process chain?
