Transparent MedTech is the MedTech Europe centralised transparency platform where the industry discloses all financial contributions provided to independent medical education.
The platform publishes the following types of contributions to medical education:
- educational grants to support Third Party Organised Educational Events (including attendance of HCPs, support of faculty (e.g. speakers) as well as support to the general running of the event);
- scholarships and fellowships;
- and grants for public awareness campaigns.
MedTech Europe members are responsible for the information they publish in this platform. Therefore, should you have an inquiry regarding a specific Educational Grant, you can contact the company directly from the specific Educational Grant page.
The information published in this platform is provided in good faith by medical technology companies to increase transparency with regards to the support they provide for medical education purposes. This support is provided in different ways and the calculation of the amounts indicated may vary from company to company depending on many factors which are reflected in each company’s methodological note (see the Disclosure Guidelines, included in the MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice).
The information contained in this platform is provided for information and for reference, but neither MedTech Europe nor the reporting company make any representation as to the pertinence of the information for any other use.
Which countries are covered?
Currently, the system covers:
- Countries that are members of the European Union (including the United Kingdom), except for the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Portugal.
- Countries that are member of the EFTA (Switzerland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland)
- Russia and Turkey
- Italy is not fully covered
Why are the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Portugal not covered and Italy only in part by Transparent MedTech?
The Netherlands, Belgium, France and Portugal have local laws or regulations that make disclosure of transfers of value to HCPs and HCOs mandatory, so our companies disclose Educational Grants to HCOs in those respective websites instead of in Transparent MedTech.
Starting from 2021, for the data of 2020, companies that are members of both MedTech Europe and Confindustria Dispositivi Medici are exempted from the transparency obligations in Transparent MedTech with regards to the Italian territory, as they will have to publish only according to the provisions of Confindustria Dispositivi Medici Code of Ethics.
