As healthcare reform proceeds, cost pressures are mounting for medical technology companies.  Increased pressure on reimbursement, more stringent regulatory approval requirements and the medical device tax have all put pressure on operations to reduce supply chain costs and improve performance.  The industry has done a remarkable job responding to this challenge, stripping out cost, and many wonder where they will find new opportunities to achieve additional supply chain efficiencies.  The industry will need to push ahead with long term supply chain transformation projects and innovative solutions to continue driving cost improvements.

This seminar will explore MedTech industry operating performance trends and some of the leading supply chain strategies that are being implemented by forward thinking MedTech companies.  Hear from practitioners from both large and small companies about how they have leveraged these leading practices to achieve performance improvements.  Learn how they tackled roadblocks and overcame pitfalls along the implementation journey.
