Denmark is to set up a permanent, national "early warning system" to inform the health department about new technology. The system, to be housed in the centre for evaluation and medical technology assessment, will be used to identify, "filter" and prioritise relevant technology before evaluating it according to internationally accepted methods. The health department believes that the move will help it keep pace with the "explosive growth of new products and procedures".
