Health First Europe (HFE) is delighted to welcome the European Diagnostics Manufacturers Association (EDMA) as a new member organisation. EDMA represents over 500 companies engaged in the research, development, manufacturing and distribution of in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) products across Europe. IVD products have enormous potential to transform healthcare systems by providing better care to patients through more accurate initial diagnoses as well as playing an essential role throughout the delivery of care from primary prevention, to evaluation and follow-up of treatment. Additionally, the IVD industry continues to support greater health literacy for patients who can now monitor their lab tests online through a tool developed specifically for patients.
EDMA members include national IVD associations from across Europe, hundreds of innovative SMEs (Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises) as well as the leading companies.
HFE welcomes EDMA and looks forward to our collaboration for ensuring patients receive high quality care and access to the most innovative technologies – from diagnosis to treatment, monitoring and recovery.
