MassDevice Playbook Presents: ACO's and the age of cost scrutny


In the era of health reform the cost of new technology is under scrutiny by both public and private payers. 

Technology is an easy target as new innovations will require an increasing level of data to fit in existing payment categories. New, promising, expensive devices, mean manufacturers and inventors will struggle to meet the threshold of data to satisfy payers and regulators. 

How will new products that physicians and consumers demand be paid for in health reform? What incentives will hospitals have to grow innovative new technology programs if new payment incentives and regulations threaten access? What new payment systems will hinder or help hospitals in the next 3-5 years to adopt new technology without losing on the bottom-line? 

Join MassDevice as we welcome Randel Richner from the Neocure Group to give us the lowdown on changes the medical device world can expect from the new era of cost scrutiny. The Neocure Group is a consulting firm specializing in health policy, reimbursement strategy, health economics, and global planning to support biopharmaceutical and medical technology companies.

Date: April 26th

Time: 1:00 p.m.
