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.
For more than 25 years we have worked to develop close relationships with our congressional delegation and state leaders to make sure they understand our industry and its needs. This approach has helped our industry weather many difficult moments. During the COVID-19 crisis, for example, MassMEDIC helped ensure that medtech workers were deemed essential throughout the state lockdowns. We also were able to make sure our manufacturing workers got priority access to vaccination. In addition, we played an integral role in repealing the 2.3% medical device excise tax, tamping down the onerous Massachusetts gift ban, and helped lead the way to a more predictable FDA.
As a MassMEDIC member, you are part of a unified industry voice and your issues and priorities are paramount to our discussions with legislators.
You also have access to medtech industry issue tracking and awareness creation, through events like our Town Halls and advocacy publications.
We are committed to your success, including ensuring your company has access to the tools and resources needed to establish and grow your business in the New England area. Broad exposure for opportunities within our industry is important to ensure you garner the best talent possible.
As a MassMEDIC member, you receive up to five complimentary job listings on our website each month.
MassMEDIC has partnered with MassBio to expand our savings program. Now you can enjoy even greater savings from a wider variety of partners than ever before.
New England Edge is available exclusively to MassMEDIC members and access is free with your membership.
Best of all? Every deal has been pre-negotiated to save you time and money. There’s no complicated number crunching required.
As an organization strongly committed to supporting the health of our medtech ecosystem, MassMEDIC offers a variety of resources for start-ups and pre-commercialization companies. Through a robust network of our membership, we can facilitate business plan development, access to executives at medtech OEMs for business development or mentorship opportunities, and invitations to communities relevant to their companies’ conceptualization, formation, and development.

I’ve been involved with MassMEDIC’s lobbying efforts for the past eight years. The organization’s grass-roots approach in bringing industry’s concerns to federal and state policy makers has made a difference. The medical device industry can count on MassMEDIC to push for legislation and regulations that encourage innovation and facilitate timely access to new medical technologies.
