On 14 October, Vägen in i vården is arranged, a “matchmaking event” where product companies within MedTec have the opportunity to highlight ideas and solutions for a number of important players in healthcare in the Västra Götaland region. Prior to the event, the companies have had the opportunity to submit contributions with their ideas and solutions for healthcare, these are then matched against actors within the Västra Götaland region who are offered to take part in these ideas.
A number of contributions have been submitted and of these contributions, seven have been selected and will present their contribution to a panel consisting of representatives from the following: Västra Götalandsregionen, Gothia Forum and Calanderska from the healthcare side and AZ Healthworks, J&J and Lif from the business side.
One of the seven selected contributions is Health Solutions’ “Segmented Screening Tools“, which is a concept where simple and scalable pre-screening tools are used in a large population group. The purpose is to find the individuals who meet the requirements to proceed with the screening and thereby also reduce the number of individuals for whom more costly methods must be used to make a diagnosis (eg genetic tests). With this method, diagnostic areas that are currently considered too expensive to screen may be possible to screen.
