Date:9/3/2009

NEW YORK, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue.

2008/2009 Healthcare Research Review

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0128140/2008/2009-Healthcare-Research-Review.html

Despite the global economic slowdown that began in 2008 and continues into 2009, technology markets in healthcare and related industries remain strong. Companies that provide technology products or related services to healthcare markets are well-positioned to weather the current weak economy and be poised to take full advantage of these growing markets when recovery arrives.

BCC Research has provided comprehensive coverage of healthcare technology markets for many years, and we are now in the process of increasing our production of healthcare-related technology market research reports. This review of healthcare research conducted in 2008 and the first half of 2009 is meant to provide a sampling of the type of quantitative market information, analysis, and guidance that has been aiding business decision-making since BCC was founded in 1971.

This review includes highlights of reports published by BCC Research on the following healthcare technology markets:

Medical Diagnostic Kits

Minimally Invasive Medical Devices

Cancer Therapies

The Dental Market

Organ and Tissue Transplantation and Alternatives

Disabled and Elderly Assistive Technologies

Medical Device Coatings

Pediatric Health Care Products and Services

We hope you find this Research Review valuable, and we look forward to serving our customers' research needs in these growing healthcare markets.
