  •  Feedback from the patient groups surveyed: 582 patient groups, covering a wide range of specialties, from 62 countries.
  •  Industry analyses: compared with other healthcare sectors, assessed for a wide range of activities.
  •  Company analysis: 33 medical-device companies analysed on 7 indicators of corporate reputation (one of the indicators, effectiveness of patient-group relations, is brand new for 2015-2016). Companies are also compared within 12 different therapy/device areas.
  •  Over 150 patient-group  comments, providing guidance to industry about how to be more patient centric.

Below is the demands in this field:

  •  All medical devices on the market must have a positive benefit/risk ratio, and bring therapeutic benefit to patients.
  •  Manufacturers should be required to produce more and better clinical data, and, whenever possible, conduct randomised controlled trials to demonstrate that a medical device is safe and effective before being placed on the market.
  •  Bring more clarity with regard to clinical evidence.
  • Authorisation of a clinical investigation should be subject to the opinion of an independent ethics committee... [Full quote is in the report] —National Portugal-based public-health organisation
