Watch a complimentary webcast where we present the findings from PwC's Health Research Institute's (HRI) new report: Medtech companies prepare for an innovation makeover. In addition to the author of the report and other PwC subject matter specialists, the webcast features an industry perspective from Stan Rowe, Chief Scientific Officer, Edwards Lifesciences Corporation.
The medtech industry has been on the forefront of health innovation for decades, but growth through product innovation has slowed, and the benefits from incremental improvements to existing devices pale in comparison to the cost of making those devices. While 64% of executives surveyed by HRI view innovation as a competitive necessity today, 81% believe it will be in five years. But, the mere concept of innovation needs redefining in a health ecosystem that demands and rewards new models for delivering better care at lower costs across a broad patient population. Medtech companies must get ready to compete in this new environment or risk being displaced by competitors that can show evidence their innovations achieve the same high clinical standards but are faster, better, less expensive, and more integrated into the care delivery continuum.
Grounded in one of the largest benchmarking studies conducted on medtech innovation, HRI's study forms the foundation for our webcast. Participants will hear about leading industry practices that result in high impact innovation strategies designed to drive business models, management processes and product development efforts. The webcast will include a discussion of specific innovation examples and case studies.
