MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


Starting 11:00 a.m. EDT on Thursday, June 14, 2012

Medical Devices Industry Manager Venkat Rajan for  Frost & Sullivan's Healthcare Practice

As part of the Patient Protection and Affordability Care Act (PPACA), a 2.3 percent excise tax goes into effect January 2013 on the sale of nearly all medical devices not sold direct to consumers. Though there are a number of legislative and other legal measures in play that could remove the provision before it goes in to effect, the potential of the tax has been identified as the trigger behind a number of significant organizational changes that have already taken place within many major medical devices companies.

New business models and other healthcare cost containment pressures beyond the reform bill have forced companies to rethink their long term strategies and approach to product development.  Frost & Sullivan's keynote presentation will take a look at the potential effects of those changing dynamics, and what it could mean long term for stakeholders across the supply chain of medical devices.

In addition to Frost & Sullivan's keynote presentation, other speakers and moderators include:

  • Editor-in-Chief Shana Leonard of Medical Product Manufacturing News and
  • Editor-in-Chief Heather Thompson of Medical Device + Diagnostic Today
  • Managing Editor Brian Buntz of Medical Device + Diagnostic Industry
  • Sr. Sales Engineer Brent Hahn of Accumold
  • Technical Director John Whynott of Mikrotech, LLC
  • Associate Editor Camilla Andersson of European Medical Device Technology
  • Editor-in-Chief Norbert Sparrow of China Medical Device Manufacturer

Hosted by Medical Device + Diagnostic Industry, Medical Product Manufacturing News, Qmed, and China Medical Device Manufacturer, this virtual event and conference is solely dedicated to outsourced medical device design and development. Attendees will benefit from a variety of presentations, panel discussions, and chat sessions that will serve to educate medical device OEMs on a selection of contract manufacturing topics. By attending this virtual conference, attendees can interact and network directly with industry experts and peers, download information and view presentations direct from their desktop.
