New online tool to manage medical device reimbursement across Europe

Factory-CRO announced that it has launched a Web-based tool for medical device companies that wish to market and sell products in Europe.

The website,, contains specific regulatory guidance on how to secure insurance reimbursement for medical devices companies in 17 European countries.

European reimbursement of medical devices has been a formidable obstacle for many manufacturers and marketers because the process varies not only from country to country, but sometimes even within different regions of the same country.

The website features three primary sections: An online database of reimbursement and regulatory data by country; a catalog of country-specific Reimbursement Reports; and access to Factory's team of expert consultants.

“For the first time ever, medical device companies can quickly understand the various processes for reimbursement across Europe,” says Joris Bannenberg, COO of Factory-CRO. “The online database simplifies this otherwise very confusing situation.” Yet, the website 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 Kingdom. The number of countries will be soon extended in order to cover all European countries. “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.

Also available through the new website are detailed country-specific Reimbursement Reports. Each report contains detailed information about one country that supports both reimbursement and marketing strategies for medical devices. All Reimbursement Reports are kept thoroughly up-to-date by Factory's expert staff.

Formerly known as the Jacoti reports, the Factory team has brought these highly-respected reports completely up to date. Factory-Reimbursement is the only place you will find the original Jacoti reports, and the best place for the most current information.
