Its foundation is the periodic contribution of accurate company-level information by individual SAMED members and the collation and analysis of this data.
Its value lies in producing information to position the medtech industry more strategically in terms of its contribution to economic growth and the transformation of the national health system.
Why we need industry-wide data
SAMED offers its members a credible platform to engage stakeholders on matters of critical importance to the medtech industry. However, our representations to parliament, government departments, regulators, major health sector role-players and business associations have lacked solid industry-wide data that would strengthen our arguments.
Data with Integrity is designed to fill this gap by collecting, securely storing, consolidating and analysing information supplied by our members and any other medtech companies who wish to participate.
Possession of quality information is a form of power. SAMED and the industry’s hand will be strengthened by Data with Integrity when engaging in advocacy, negotiation and the law-making process and forging working partnerships.
Companies contributing to Data with Integrity will be entitled to access the aggregated information to assist them in the planning and conduct of their business. We believe a better understanding of the environment in which they operate will be advantageous to all companies participating in Data with Integrity.
