MedTech Code of Ethical Business practice
Boston Scientific is a member of MedTech Europe, and as such we are a strong supporter of this important industry code, introduced on 1st January 2018.
We respect the obligation of physicians and other health care providers to make independent decisions that are in the best interest of patient care. Selection of medical devices should be based solely on their effectiveness, quality and value.
We also encourage to visit MedTech Europe website, where there are numerous resources available to explain the new MTE Code and a dedicated information package and blog on the phasing-out of direct sponsorships that you can find at https://www.ethicalmedtech.eu/.
