DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 7, 2013--Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4qtgwc/trends_shaping_u ) has announced the addition of the "Trends Shaping U.S. Medical Devices Industry Strategies" report to their offering.
The reelection of President Obama insured that the major pieces of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA) will be implemented between now and 2018. PPACA serves to accelerate trends that were already underway. No U.S. healthcare industry company can afford to ignore the industry discontinuities that are occurring. The Trends Shaping U.S. Medical Devices Strategies report is designed to challenge conventional thinking, fight Group Think, inject fresh/different ways of looking at medical devices and to question product development, marketing, business development, and company strategies. Historic industry boundaries are giving way. Who the customer is will change for many products and services. The very definition of what a company sells will be brought into question. Furthermore, technological convergence requires innovation, new disciplines, capabilities and organizational structures for those healthcare entities that will survive and prosper. Many companies will not make it.
U.S. Medical Devices (In Vitro Diagnostics, Medical Devices, Medical Equipment, and Medical Supplies) is an industry undergoing redefinition and revitalization. Five technologies and a myriad of innovations are converging to enable the creation and development of new and/or improved products. Legislation is fostering innovations and is speeding industry change. Changes in one healthcare industry sector affect the other interrelated healthcare stakeholders. The period to 2020 will be typified by industry discontinuities, innovation and change. What worked in the past will not work in the future. Medical device industry norms in 2020 will be radically different than they were in 2012. The Trends Shaping U.S. Medical Devices Industry Strategies report provides insights into how the transformation of the respective United States healthcare industry stakeholders will redefine how medical devices are developed, reimbursed, launched, marketed, and who, how and where they are utilized. The report is organized to assist management in strategy development and in the development and preparation of annual long-term strategic and marketing plans. The implications listed at the end of each chapter serve to challenge the reader's thinking and basic assumptions.
The Trends Shaping U.S. Medical Devices Industry Strategies is designed to: 1) prompt senior management to question internal assumptions and corporate strategies in order to fight Group Think and refine or develop strategies to better position the company to capitalize on industry change, 2) challenge the thinking of product development and marketing teams/staffs, and 3) orient individuals new to the industry. Strategically managed companies anticipate and capitalize on industry change, innovate and prosper; the majority of companies are destined to be broken up, acquired, merged or driven out of business.
