The EU COMED project represents an important step towards the improvement of methodologies for evaluation of medical devices and their use in policy making. Across more than three years of intensive endeavor, a consortium of 6 European universities strived to develop scientifically rigorous recommendations on how real world evidence can and should be used for the evaluation of medical devices.

The resulting insights help to provide guidelines on the use of surrogate outcomes, to develop methods for evaluating mHealth apps, to give a comprehensive answers on the main drivers of clinical practice variations across Europe, and to develop adequately researched policy advice for the early assessment and coverage with evidence development policies in the field of medical devices, taking into account the varying availability of resources across different contexts in Europe.
