Holiday Wish List, Part 1—Mike on Medtech

In this episode of Mike on Medtech with Mike Drues, president of Vascular Sciences, we discuss my lastest Editor’s Letter that appeared in the November/December issue of MPO, My Holiday Wish List (for Industry) (click here to read that Letter). In this Letter, I outlined a few things that I would like to see for the benefit of the medical device industry. The items included an improved image for the industry, pain management technologies market success, reform or improvment in reimbursement and CMS, and a couple other items. In part 1 of this two-part podcast series, we address the first item, an improved image, and discuss the recent "black eyes" suffered by the medtech industry, such as The Bleeding Edge documentary and an investative report that cited dangerous medical devices. We also discuss announced changes the FDA intends to introduce such as the 510k Modernization effort.
