The MEdTech Conference
Thank you for attending The MedTech Conference 2017! The information below is from our 2017 program, but stay tuned as we will be updating it soon for The MedTech Conference 2018 in Philadelphia, PA on September 24-26!
The MedTech Conference programming is always noted as one of the biggest attendee highlights; we work hard to ensure we deliver the most relevant topics and trends for our audience, presented by the industry's most notable thought leaders and experts. By the end of your three days at The MedTech Conference, you will walk away with new strategies, advice, and connections that will immediately benefit your work.
As we build our conference programming, we always start with a framework in mind. This year, we have developed four Program Pillars that encompass all of our programming. These Program Pillars help define the types of sessions, keynotes, CEOs Unplugged, and other content that will be featured throughout The MedTech Conference.
Read through the four Program Pillars to get an idea of the programming that will be at the conference in San Jose this September, and download our program preview or check out our agendafor more information.
A daunting array of decisions makes or breaks the success of a medical technology, whether in the U.S. or in key markets around the world. Regulators, government payers and purchasers, private payers, health systems, clinicians and patients all make or influence the regulatory, coding, coverage, payment and purchasing decisions that determine whether a technology’s potential value will be fully realized in the marketplace. Manufacturers must understand and stay abreast of varying, evolving and often-unclear evidence expectations among these decision-makers. In these sessions, attendees will learn about the latest regulatory, payment and health care delivery developments and gain expert insight into how to communicate value effectively and develop the data necessary to meet the evidence expectations of key decision-makers.
Medical technology manufacturers face a multitude of legal requirements around the world for products on the market, including regulatory post-market surveillance, compliance and ethical restrictions governing interactions with customers and stakeholders, and advertising and promotion regulations. Commercial success for manufacturers turns not just on bringing a product to market, but also on complying with this wide array of requirements. These sessions will help attendees to stay current on the latest developments in these critical areas and learn from experts on minimizing legal risks and how to develop and incorporate effective compliance practices.
Medical technology business leaders worldwide are challenged by fast-paced technological innovation, changing business models, evolving health care delivery systems, and increasing pressure to demonstrate value. These sessions feature market experts, government officials, and company executives who will share insights on the outlook for the global medical technology industry and best practices for ensuring success in a complex, changing marketplace.
The medical technology international marketplace is being reshaped by new technologies and business collaborations, driven by convergence with adjacent industries. In digital medtech, genomics, manufacturing, and other areas medtech companies are leveraging technology innovations and strategic partnerships to develop new solutions and markets. In these sessions, senior business leaders and technology experts will share information and essential perspectives on these trends and the best practices that can help companies stay competitive at the leading edges of the global medtech market.
