Dramatic Changes in MedTech

Josh Makower, ExploraMed

Josh Makower, CEO of ExploraMed, encourages those who are interested in the future of medical technology to engage in the current (as of Spring, 2010) state of the vertical's landscape. Factors such as the global economic crisis are the backdrop for the industry's threatened state. But what's even more imposing, says Makower, are the upcoming policy changes in physician interaction and compensation, patent and healthcare reform, and the broken insurance company reimbursement system.
