We hope you enjoyed the last day of The MedTech Conference, and your time in San Jose. Below are some social media highlights from Day 3:
This week, several of my colleagues and I are at AdvaMed’s annual MedTech Conference where we are discussing a wide range of topics, including value-based contracting, cybersecurity, and digital health. Earlier today, I led a panel focused on the decline of early-stage investment in medtech, and its impact on startup activity. During the session, we dove into how dwindling investments in those early phases could put future innovation at risk. We also discussed potential strategies for attracting new medtech investors.
As the medical technology landscape continues to rapidly evolve, new vehicles for innovation are taking center stage, ranging from big data and artificial intelligence to cognitive learning. Separating all the information around these new technologies and understanding the realities of the implications they hold for the industry has never been more important. In particular, the role that innovation can play in refocusing conversations around the patient experience and patient engagement is critical.
We hope you had a great second day at the conference! Check out some photo highlights from the day two, including many shots from our plenary sessions.
The MedTech Conference continued today with inspirational and insightful speeches, and plenty of opportunities to check out some of the newest medical technologies.

Day 1 at The MedTech Conference is a wrap! Check out some photo highlights from the first day at the conference (and from our International Reception last night!).
A major theme across today’s sessions and reflected throughout The MedTech Conference this year is around the future of medical technology and its evolution in global markets. From growth opportunities, to the role of specific innovations, to developments in value based healthcare, the medical technology industry clearly sees both challenges and solutions in terms of local market dynamics, evolving regulations and trend towards patient-centric value.
The MedTech Conference is officially underway! Day 1 was packed with educational programming, technology demonstrations and networking with peers from across the world.
With three days until The MedTech Conference begins, it’s time to learn about the Patient Pavilion! At Booth #313, the Patient Pavilion will feature four sessions: Insights, Activation, Advocacy, and Engagement. All moderated by Rolf Benirshke, Co-CEO, Legacy Health Strategies, these sessions will educate on how to mobilize patients into care, keep them committed throughout treatments, and initiate brand advocates. As the world of healthcare is transforming, it is important to learn how to best optimize the patient experience.
Here's a quick look at the four sessions:
A number of leading UK clinicians and pioneering medical companies will be visiting The MedTech Conference in a bid to forge lasting relationships and drive sales for UK products.
The mission, which is supported by the UK Government, aims to strengthen export links between the UK and San Jose and create demand for UK designed healthcare technologies.
