Summary The project “Baltic Fracture Competence Centre” (BFCC) will set up local fracture registries at six hospitals around the Baltic Sea Region and link them together in one transnational fracture registry. This first transnational registry will support hospitals and companies in the Baltic Sea Region in identifying needs and potentials for innovation within fracture management. Furthermore, clinicians will support the innovation process by identifying clinical needs. As a future platform for fracture management BFCC will start collaboration between industry and hospitals by carrying out three demonstration pilots.
Background Due to an ageing society the need for innovative products and clinical procedures for fracture treatment is increasing as a response to age-related fractures and co-morbidities such as osteoporosis, infections and non-unions. Innovations in fracture management must reduce the cost of care or clearly improve the quality of care.
Objectives • To strengthen the capacity of the six hospitals within fracture management in Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Lithuania, Poland, and Sweden; • To collaborate amongst the six hospitals and with companies for the demand driven identification of innovation needs and potentials, co-development of products and clinical procedures as well as facilitation of transnational market understanding and access within the industrial sectors: trauma devices, imaging, pharmaceuticals and wound care; • To develop and implement a transnational fracture registry providing a unique multinational research and innovation infrastructure for evidence based clinical research and innovation between hospitals and companies in the field of fracture management; • To implement and test the BFCC innovation platform in three transnational hospital-industry collaboration pilots within the innovation topics infections, diagnostics of osteoporosis and post-surgery complications within fracture treatment.
