Medical devices—ranging from tongue depressors to implants to robotic surgery machines—have revolutionized medical care. While the associated healthcare spending is only 4 to 6 percent of total healthcare spending in the U.S, the rate of spending growth is in the double digits. Like drugs, pricing information for medical devices is opaque. Advocates have long had safety concerns about devices, calling for reforms to the FDA’s regulatory process.  

In this webinar you will learn about the pricing and marketing parallels between drugs and medical devices, as well as the key issues surrounding medical device safety.
