The admission to the German Catalogue of Therapeutic Appliances is an essential step to establish your products in the market.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) face significant challenges after approving their medical devices in accordance with the Medical Device Regulation (MDR).

To quickly and cost-effectively conquer the market, we provide support with the three key hurdles. 

The three central hurdles

Market Access and Reimbursement

 

Successful market entry requires products to be reimbursed by the payers, like the health insurance companies.

Without reimbursement by health insurers, many products lose their appeal.

Admission to the German catalogue of therapeutic appliances ensures that your products are reimbursable, making them more attractive and easily available to patients and healthcare providers, and significantly facilitating market penetration.

Competitiveness and Visibility

 

In a saturated market, it is crucial to stand out against established competitors and increase the visibility of your products.

Admission to the catalogue of therapeutic appliances signals quality and reliability.

This quality mark can be used as a powerful marketing tool to build trust with doctors, patients, and pharmacies, thereby enhancing your competitiveness.

Cost Efficiency and Resource Management

 

SMEs need to manage their limited financial and personnel resources efficiently to finance product development, approval, and market launch.

Admission to the catalogue of therapeutic appliances saves costs by paving the way for reimbursable sales and reducing the effort of individual negotiations with payers.

This allows you to use your resources more efficiently and focus on market expansion.
