Scandinavians argue case for registers

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Norwegian health service saves some NKr 5 million ($800,000) a year through swift boycotting of products that its implant register shows to be substandard. In comparison, the annual cost of running the register is just NKr 1 million. These statistics are cited by Jacob Nordan, medical devices expert at the Norwegian Board of Health, to support the elaboration of a Scandinavian proposal to develop implant registers that would be of value to, and produce savings for, the rest of Europe.
