Welcome to the ECRIN database on outcome measures for medical device trials

Selecting appropriate outcome measures to assess the efficacy and safety of a medical device in a given disease plays a crucial role and can be challenging. This database is established to support researchers in planning, conducting clinical trials and health technology assessments (HTA) on medical devices.

The database allows you to search information on relevant outcomes related to specific medical devices defined a-priori to an evidence synthesis. The information on relevant outcomes in medical device trials were systematically searched and originate mainly from concrete HTAs and other relevant publications, such as systematic reviews and horizon scans published after 2008 and represent the commonly used outcome measures by international institutions involved in HTA (e.g. members of INAHTA, EUnetHTA and non-profit members of HTAi).

In this database you can find information about: To start searching in the database please select either Filters or Search from the top menu.

WP 5 Structuring a European medical device clinical research network
Objective: Structuring a European network and hub for clinical research on medical device: WP leader: Edmund Neugebauer, Germany; project manager: Sunya-Lee Antoine, Germany.


The information related to 'Body Classification', 'Type of Intervention', 'Device Categories' and the associated 'ICD-10' classification numbers contained in this repository are without warranty, due to the fact that the project group assigned the data autonomous.
