Confused about where the medical device market is going...well you are not alone...by reading this full article, you may become even more confused! Where is the balance... investors want a return on their money, consumers want technology that will save or promote better health care... but the consumers can't get the health care without someone footing the bill...various presentations...including “ Early Stage Investing, Financing and Exit Strategies", “Mining China for Potential Investments”, “Creating Effective Presentations", “The Impact of Recent Patent Infringement Decisions and Litigation Outcomes on Your Medical Device Company", How Large Companies Sustain Growth through M&A and Strategic Partnerships” and more....wait a minute... DOES HEALTHCARE ENTER THE PICTURE AT ALL HERE???
Obviously this is a conference to help the investment folks make some sense out of where the money should be invested as well....everyone has their opinions on where the financial side of things will go...I'm sure this is a very challenging area today from everything I read and post on the blog...other lectures include " What are the Hot Deals Now and in the Future"... one more fractured portion of health care today in the US with "Hot Deals" having the focus rather than a direction towards what will heal....my own personal thoughts lead me to question what's wrong with this picture and is healthcare really all about the money? Nobody has a crystal ball today....but we could all sure wish one existed...and what happens when the Hot Deals go sour...I guess that's another story... but in the meantime investors and bio tech companies alike will be knocking heads to figure it out...
