We connect engineers, computer scientists, natural scientists and other medical technology experts with physicians, health economists and nursing scientists via events, communities of practice, education and training opportunities and innovation programmes.
If you understand the interactions between medical technology and the challenges of the health system, you can develop technological inventions quickly and precisely and transform them into application-oriented innovations. It involves both the assessment of the life cycle costs of innovative medical products and their evidence-based effects on all health spending.
The healthcare market, including most of all the conditions for entering the market, is extremely complex due to the high regulatory requirements. Therefore, innovators are initially confronted with multifaceted challenges that can only be overcome with expert advice and a strong network. We support you regarding the registration of your medical products, establish contacts to the Competence Pool for Registration (network of manufactures of medical products of all risk classes of the Medical Valley) or carry out a strategic needs assessment of your invention with case numbers, DRGs and OPD codes.
We support you at an early stage in the health economical evaluation of your medical product using the innovative ProHTA approach.
Medical Value by Medical Valley stands for effective and efficient healthcare solutions.
Innovative technologies and services will improve healthcare in the coming decades. In this spirit, key players from business, science, healthcare and politics have joined together in the Medical Valley EMN to pool their resources as a cluster and to create synergies. The resulting accumulated technology and problem-solving competence is used to develop and market effective solutions tailored to suit global market demands. The partners in the Medical Valley EMN focus primarily on:
- Innovative diagnostic and therapeutic procedures
- Solutions for independent living at home – even in old age
- Solutions for health promotion and prevention
- Approaches to ensure the financial sustainability of healthcare systems
- Development of P4 medicine (preventive, predictive, participatory, personalised)
The medium-term goal of all Medical Valley EMN partners is to develop products and services that significantly increase efficiency and effectiveness in the fields of prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and rehabilitation.
The long-term strategy of the Medical Valley EMN is to optimize the structures of healthcare provision. Medical Valley EMN e.V. brings together all parties to establish an international model region of optimized healthcare provision.
The cluster’s strength is its power of innovation. Businesses and research institutes in the Medical Valley EMN benefit from short distances to develop best-in-class research and development processes.
These in turn result in competitive advantages and growth opportunities in a global market. Healthcare providers benefit from access to state-of-the-art technologies and cost minimising.
Cluster management encourages these developments and strengthens the market positioning of the brand Medical Valley EMN. Thus, the region is associated with excellence in healthcare provision and is perceived as more and more attractive both in Germany and internationally.
As the global market share and sales revenues increase, the economic power of the region is strengthened. This approach enables us to secure and create jobs.
Since 2017, Medical Valley manages the Digital Health Hub Nuremberg / Erlangen [mit Verlinkung]. The Digital Hub Initiative, developed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, seeks to support the establishment of digital hubs in Germany. The underlying idea of establishing hubs is that cooperation between companies and business start-ups within a confined area (like in the Silicon Valley) will boost innovation, especially in the digital age.
