Do you need insight into overcoming the litany of global regulatory and funding hurdles in order to get your product to market?
The medical electronics market is facing a complex, fast changing and challenging future. With US healthcare reform under way and an unstandardized global regulatory environment, bringing a new product to market is becoming increasingly difficult. Top this off with the obstacle of finding appropriate funding channels, and introducing new innovations in this sector seems grimmer than ever.
EE Times has chosen to respond by launching the EE Times Medical Electronics Summit, the first in a new series of intimate high level executive briefings, bringing together senior level executives from across the medical electronics industry to discuss ways to overcome these challenges, new ways to collaborate and also what to expect in the coming years.
Join us on January 31 – February 1, 2011 in Santa Clara, CA (co-located with DesignCon) for this industry summit forum to discuss regulatory approval, cost minimization and margin maximization. Benefit from interactive panel debates offering you the opportunity to ask the crucial questions and receive the advice that you have been waiting months for.
Partake in dynamic plenary discussions and critical debate, including:
• The latest update on the FDA’s 510(k) approval procedures
