The purpose of the conference was to explore best practices and contemporary trends in public procurement in health care, with an appreciation of the potential of this policy tool to advance innovation in the field. When done strategically and through evidence, procurement of innovative medical devices can improve health outcomes without driving system costs. This report describes the different methods that can be and are being used to achieve these goals, and it provides concrete detail of each step of the procurement process through case studies from around the world. Most of the case studies are based on the experience of organizations represented at the International Roundtable.
