Inaugural Conference AdvaMed 2007 Kicks Off Today
Date:10/1/2007

rade Center October 3-4, 2007.

During the afternoon keynote address, U.S. Senator Norm Coleman (R- Minnesota) and Kerry Weems, Acting Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, will address policy issues critical to the MedTech audience. Senator Coleman represents a State that is home to leading medical technologies companies and serves on several Senate committees including the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee.

"Without question, AdvaMed member companies are leading the way in developing the next generation of life saving and life-enhancing medical technologies. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss some of the healthcare challenges our nation is facing and how AdvaMed companies are helping Congress and the American people improve our nation's health care system," said Senator Norm Coleman.

Once Deputy Chief of Staff to Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt, Kerry Weems was essential in elevating health information technology as one of the foundations of a modern, value-based health-care delivery system. Now, as Acting Administrator of CMS, he leads the federal agency responsible for administering two of the most important health care programs in the country.

"Even while we aim to maintain and improve the quality of care through the introduction of new technology, it's our obligation to Medicare beneficiaries to make sure that innovation provides them with value," said Kerry Weems.

Other panels during AdvaMed 2007 feature coming innovations in medical technology and critical issues facing the business of medical technology.
