Medical Device Seminar Bringing your medical products to United States of America (USA)
4th June 2015
Introduction Healthcare improvements rely on an innovative and diverse medical device sector around the world. But as the market grows, so too does the regulatory environment and the pressure on timelines. To guarantee swift market access, manufacturers must respond quickly and effectively to regulatory changes as they happen. They need to ensure that their products meet expectations of quality, safety and performance prior to launch in order to achieve quick, cost-efficient market acceptance. This seminar is specially organized for medical technology companies seeking entry to United States. At an estimated US$125.4 billion in 2013, the US medical device market is the world's largest. Per capita expenditure, at US$392, is the second highest in the
world, behind only Switzerland. In addition, the medical device imports increased by 4.6% to reach a record high of US$37,751 million in 2013. The running annual total reached US$38.9 billion in the 12 months to August 2014, representing y-o-y growth of 5.1%. With the facts speaking for itself, the USA is the most attractive market in the world, particularly for commercializing a medical device (Source: BMI's Medical Device Risk/Reward Ratings (RRRs)). However, there is a challenge common to all medical device manufacturers. Due to the nature of the products to be used in healthcare, the market is very much regulated to ensure that patients have access to high quality, safe and effective medical devices. As such, this seminar aims to address this challenge by providing the local medical technology companies with good knowledge and understanding of what it takes to sell a medical device in the US market.
Who Should Attend This seminar is designed for a multidisciplinary audience of: Medical Device Business Owners Medical Device Companies CEOs Managing Directors and Directors Regulatory Affairs Directors/ Managers / Specialists Quality Assurance Directors/ Managers / Specialists Product Managers / Engineers and Medical Device Consultants
