This Little Med-Device Went to Market: Health Economics and Market Access in Medical Devices

"Well begun is half done" – Aristotle
Clearly, Aristotle never worked to bring an innovative medical device to market.

The sooner you start thinking about how your product will delight clinical AND non-clinical customers, the more likely you are to optimize the market access and patient access that is critical to your success.

Beyond the challenges associated with gaining regulatory approval, there are hurdles to overcome as you enter the real world with your innovation. Many of these challenges can be addressed through understanding the non-clinical and clinical situation, building integrated plans for evidence to quantify and communicate the value of your solution, and market access & reimbursement strategies to ensure access and adoption.

On May 5, learn from Brian Vaughn, Leader, Global Health Economics and Market Access and Diane Francis, Senior Director Health Economic Solutions at ETHICON, part of the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies. Brian and Diane will discuss today's market access landscape for medical devices and how to ensure you are starting early with a plan to succeed. Don't miss the opportunity to apply for a one-on-one meeting with these experts as a forum to further discuss your company and personal reimbursement path.
