New products take too long to reach German general practitioners (GP):

Executive Summary

Innovative medical products are taking too long, sometimes years, to reach the doctor's surgery in Germany and to be accepted by GPs, says a report in Arzte Zeitung. A study carried out in 10 surgeries in Berlin suggests that such products often result in savings as well as swifter recovery for the patient. Treatment for a venous ulcer with conventional dressings can cost DM 5,000 ($3,383) and take more than nine months. New hydrocolloid dressings may reduce treatment time to five weeks and the cost to about DM 650.
