New Perspective on implementation of the IVDR in diagnostic labs
At the EHA2022 Congress, an EHA-IVDR session was held in which the local implementation of the IVDR was discussed. This resulted in a publication in HemaSphere with the title: “Experience With IVDR Implementation in Three Diagnostic Laboratories: Messages to EU Health Institutions, Diagnostic Healthcare Payers, and Authorities.” ESLHO, which is one of the Specialized Working Groups of the European Hematology Association (EHA), has contributed to both the 2022 EHA-IVDR session and this recent publication. The perspective summarizes the EHA-IVDR session, in which laboratory professionals from three different EU countries shared their experiences with local implementation of the IVDR. Messages to different stakeholders, aimed at supporting further IVDR implementation, are included at the end of the publication.
