“Empowering Patients, Inspiring Innovation”
 
Brussels, 16 November 2023 – MedTech Europe, the European trade association for the medical technology industry, unveils its manifesto for the next EU 2024-2029 political cycle. Titled “Empowering Patients, Inspiring Innovation,” the manifesto suggests actionable policies that build on the achievements of the past mandate and take the next steps to truly advance health and well-being in the EU. The objective? “Empowering Patients, Inspiring Innovation.”
 
MedTech Europe's manifesto calls on the European Union and its Member States to build policies that give access to improving and lifesaving technologies, while addressing the evolving needs of healthcare systems in Europe. To that end, the manifesto has a sharp focus on patient-centred care, digital advancement, resilience, and sustainability.
 
Opening the Policy Pulse Conference, the launch event for MedTech Europe’s manifesto, CEO of MedTech Europe Oliver Bisazza stated, “The EU now stands at a crucial crossroads and the upcoming EU political cycle is an opportunity to show that we take health and well-being of every individual, every patient, seriously. Europe can be more ambitious when it comes to access to innovation for all. The medical technology sector stands ready to play its part."
 
The manifesto proposes a general direction of travel as well as tangible recommendations so policymakers can enhance patient outcomes, promote medical innovation, and bolster wellbeing in Europe, for the second half of this decade. MedTech Europe and its members stand ready to join the conversation and actively contribute with solutions.
