The medical device and diagnostics market is more competitive and price-sensitive than ever. Consolidation, reduced reimbursement, increases in physician employment, and trends toward greater transparency and consumer responsibility have yielded dramatic changes in purchasing decision dynamics. These shifts have rendered many existing assumptions in the development and commercialization of medical devices obsolete.
To adapt quickly – and successfully – fresh thinking is needed. Processes, capabilities, and products must be redefined around a new understanding of stakeholder needs; making incremental changes won’t be enough. The changes underway demand a re-evaluation of existing business models and a clear plan for adapting to the emerging environment.
