This section covers all the questions that we were asked during the OMC. It will be updated regularly with answers to your questions.
Will presentations be shared?
All the OMC materials are available in the INCAREHEART website: https://incareheart.eu/#OMC. This includes webinars recordings, presentations, OMC questionnaire and the OMC scope document (including a detailed explanation of the building blocks and use cases).
The Electronic Medical Records system at Jämtland is Cambio?
Yes, it is Cambio Cosmic.
The PCP budget is aimed to cover all the population served by the procurers?
No, it is not. The PCP budget includes the design, development, and test of the solution with a limited number of users.
Are you looking for a single solution to cover all of the regions – Sweden, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Turkey. Or can it vary by region?
We are looking for one solution to be applied in all the procurers’ sites, with minimum local adjustments.
Is there a defined budget to support the solution beyond the project phase?
Not at this stage, but procurers are open to search other mechanisms like PPI (Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions) if the solution results are satisfactory.
Some of the required functionalities fall directly into the MDR definition. If PCP is an opportunity to test and accelerate the go to the market, does this mean that, as part of the PCP, the procurers will manage the clinical trial to obtain the CE mark?
Clinical trials for the CE mark – per se – do not fall in the field of this PCP. However, the supplier should explain in its offer the certification strategy that will be followed to obtain this CE mark after the PCP. This strategy should be part of the commercialization strategy of the developed innovative solution and it will be evaluated during the PCP.
Will the patient journey be defined by the Buyers Group or the suppliers?
The patient journey will be defined by the Buyers Group.
Have the criteria been defined for quality of life and other KPIs?
Not yet. We kindly ask you to please wait for the Challenge Brief.
Will the suppliers be able to bid on different components of the tender call?
No, a tender answering the whole tender brief should be given.
Can universities, public or private, be suppliers?
