Impact of the Medical Device Excise Tax, which will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2013

Regulatory repercussions on certain key sectors of the market

Expected changes in market strategy for industry stakeholders

Key opportunities for growth in medical technologies

This briefing will be beneficial to any individual or organization in the medical technology marketplace looking to gain perspectives on where industry trends are heading, and how the current election cycle will shape those shifts.

Supporting Quote "Due to the proposed direct industry taxes and cost containment measures of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), many industry observers had been looking to the midyear Supreme Court review of the bill and November elections as their best chances for repeal of certain measures," noted Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager Venkat Rajan. "For many companies, a significant portion of 2012 board meetings involved mapping out strategies for various scenarios and contingencies due to the uncertainties in the industry. Now, with the outcomes in hand, the preparedness and successful execution of those game plans will be paramount to the long term outlook of many firms."
