Column: This is how the Danish Medicines Council should strengthen its application process

Roche and Novartis have been behind almost 10 percent of all application submissions to the Danish Medicines Council since 2017. In a column, representatives from both firms point out three problems and make concrete proposals for how to improve the council’s work.

This is the fifth year in a row that case processing got behind schedule, according to the council’s latest year-in-review.

This is not sustainable for the patients, the healthcare system or the companies. That’s why it’s good that the Danish Medicines Council has stated it welcomes proposals for how to improve. We would like to acknowledge this.
