Factory Reimbursement launches tools for medical device
reimbursement across Europe
9 February 2010
Factory Reimbursement has launched a new low-cost research and
reporting service for medical device companies that wish to market and
sell products in Europe.
Manufacturers of medical devices and importers can now purchase
customized reports that explain the intricacies of obtaining insurance
reimbursement for their particular product, specific to the markets in
which they hope to sell.
These reports are in addition to Factory’s broader reimbursement reports
European reimbursement of medical devices has been an obstacle for
manufacturers and marketers because the process varies from country to
country and even within different regions of the same country.
The tools also allow manufacturers of medical devices access to a
complete database of reimbursement and regulatory data by country plus a
ready-to-purchase catalog of country-specific Reimbursement Reports.
Formerly known as the Jacoti Reports, the available data spans 15
European Union countries and is updated each year by Factory
Reimbursement’s team of expert researchers.
“Rather than hiring an expensive consultant to handle reimbursement,
medical device manufacturers can now get all the answers they need to do
it themselves, for about €1,000 for the major European countries. This
detailed information can save a manufacturer weeks or months of delay,
and thousands of dollars of consultant fees,” says Joris Bannenberg, COO
of Factory Reimbursement.
The site contains detailed data aggregated from Austria, Belgium,
Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden,
Switzerland, The Czech Republic, The Netherlands, and The United
“Quick access to this detailed regulatory data and reimbursement
timelines will help any medical device manufacturer plan a more
efficient entry into Europe,” adds Bannenberg.
