“Cardiology 2018 – From Basic Science to High Performance Medicine” was the theme of the 84th Annual Meeting of the DGK – Deutsche Gesellschaft für Kardiologie – Herz- und Kreislaufforschung (German Cardiac Society) that took place in Mannheim from April 4th to 7th 2018. More than 8,000 delegates met to discuss the newest developments in European cardiology.
Kalms Consulting’s experts, Dr. Katja Schröder and Dr. Holger Schaffrath, participated in the meeting; there they met with clients as well as important stakeholders in German and European cardiology.
“Seen from the perspective of innovative medical devices, new diagnostic modalities for established treatment methods and interdisciplinary as well as personalized care concepts in cardiology, the German market offers world class scientific and medical expertise. This makes Germany the preferred target market for launching medical device innovations. The challenges of securing sufficient reimbursement for new technologies can overcome these by using sophisticated, yet practical, market access strategies”
