Medtech is a federally regulated industry, which means changes in public policy can have a profound and immediate impact on your company. We are champions of the medtech industry, advocating at the state and federal levels to ensure policies protect and support our region’s medtech sector. Our Advocacy Think Tank offers an opportunity for members with significant resources dedicated to state and federal affairs to gather for information sharing and advocacy coordination.
Industry leaders in this group help to shape the position and advocacy strategy for MassMEDIC by discussing, considering, and, if necessary, reaching consensus on action plans for pressing federal policy issues. Activities include developing comments for federal rulemaking (e.g. FDA’s Device Remanufacturing Guidance), and legislative discussion drafts (e.g. Senate HELP Committee PREVENT Pandemics Act) and providing guidance in regard to supporting the organization’s sign-on to certain industry letters in collaboration, many times with fellow industry trade groups.
