Demand-Driven Health Innovation
May 16, 2018
9:05 a.m. to 9:50 a.m.

Dr. Wijeysundera will provide an overview of CADTH, its role in health technology assessment, and its transition to health technology management. He will also examine the technology life cycle approach, CADTH’s upstream alignment with Health Canada, and an early awareness program, as well as downstream implementation support and procurement issues.

Leveraging Real-World Evidence for Medical Devices
May 16, 2018
11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Dr. Wijeysundera joins Sally Prawdzik (Johnson & Johnson) and Patrick Fandja (Medical Devices, Health Canada) to examine how real-world evidence is increasingly being discussed in the context of medical devices. Leveraging real-world evidence has the potential to provide powerful insights into the benefits and risks of medical devices. Health Canada and industry will explore the opportunities, challenges, and complexity of using real-world evidence to drive pre- and post-market regulatory decisions on devices.
