Medical technology companies have long been recognized for their life-saving contributions to diagnosing and treating patients – from medical imaging to genetic testing to implantable devices. In fact, medical technology advances are credited with helping to add five years to the average U.S. life expectancy since 1980 and slashing the number of days spent in hospitals by 59 percent between 1980 and 2010. The newest medtech innovations are truly astounding, from the use of 3D printing of tissue to diagnostics linked to smartphones, to innovations in medical robotics and nanotechnology.

Posted by Lauren Belisle on June 22, 2017

Updated June 29, 2017: Did you miss the chat referenced below? Check out our summary/recap here: #MedTechInnovator Twitter Chat: June 27, 2017.

 

One of the things we love is using the conference as a connector - when we see people meeting new prospective partners, investors, employers and more, that's what tells us everything we do all year round is worth it! But, The MedTech Conference is only three days long, and there's much more we can do year-round to drive connections throughout the medical technology ecosystem.

Reflections On the U.S. Supreme Court’s Decision Limiting Use of the False Claims Act

Posted by Matt Wetzel on May 30, 2017

In reflecting on 2016 legal developments, a key health law case that stands out is the Supreme Court’s decision endorsing the implied certification theory of the False Claims Act (Universal Health Services v. Escobar). Contrary to many press outlets, Universal Health Services will not serve – in 2017 and onward – to pave the way for more whistleblower suits. In fact, the Court’s decision raises the bar for whistleblowers, and its practical impact will be to restrict the use of the False Claims Act.
