Abstract: This pilot study strives to reach a more complete understanding of the key features of the medical technology supply chains in the European healthcare sector by contributing to the empirical foundation of the concept and employs a qualitative research design with structured interviews as the primary data collection technique. The target of this research is to identify the critical supply chain management factors in the medtech supply chain, in order for stakeholders participating in it to be able to identify which areas of improvement need to be addressed during the design and implementation of their supply chain strategies.
