Description

“From Innovation to Solutions: Challenges and Opportunities in a Changing Medtech Marketplace”

Faced by health system cost pressures on one side and burgeoning clinical and technological opportunities on the other, medical device companies today face multiple strategic imperatives. Gone are the days when medtech companies focused exclusively on improved clinical outcomes and were rewarded for incremental technical advances; new customers and winds of change are forcing companies to adjust their strategies. In this talk, we'll discuss the winds of change affecting the medical device industry and what some of the smartest companies are doing to adjust to those changes.
