2015 Industry Update: Change, Challenges & Opportunities

On November 12, 2015, I delivered this presentation to the Medical Device Supply Chain Council in Scottsdale,  AZ. Attendees included supply chain and senior executives from BD, Terso, Endologix, Edwards Lifesciences, Halyard Healthcare, Wech Allyn, Boston Scientific, Rhenus Healthcare, Owens & Minor, Terumo, Karl Storz, Acelity and PwC.

Topics covered during this informative and far-reaching presentation included:

  • a thirty-year horizon for continued, increased demand for healthcare services; 
  • the ticking time bomb of chronic care; 
  • 2015 as the year of massive consolidation across all aspects of the health care system; 
  • lack of adequate progress in improving medical device supply chains since adoption of the Affordable Care Act
  • major regulatory and payment changes on the horizon.
