Event: The MedTech Conference

Topic: The Medtech Solutions Buzz: How Real Is It?

Many leaders in the medtech industry often talk about transitioning from “products” to “solutions.” Although this evolution generically makes sense (particularly as more digitally connected products enable more holistic ways to treat medical conditions), there is wide uncertainty about what this transformation actually means for the industry or for individual companies. Despite the buzz about solutions, the lack of clear case examples or success stories makes it particularly difficult for industry executives to know whether to aggressively move forward in investing in solutions, let alone what solution to build and when to do so. This session will discuss the case examples and learnings from several leading industry executives on tackling the solutions buzz, including how to define winning solutions as well as predictions on their future role in the industry.
