The medical device and life science sectors are dramatically changing. Due to recent changes in the healthcare regulatory landscape, private equity and venture capital investment in medical device companies has come under greater scrutiny. The Physician Payment Sunshine Act has brought greater attention to physician interaction with medical device and pharmaceutical companies. The proliferation of cloud-based storage and growing reliance on mobile devices have raised significant questions and fears concerning HIPAA and data security. Yet despite these challenges, and as we’ve discussed in prior publications, investment activity in this sector continues to be strong.
Learn about these hot topics and many more at the McGuireWoods 5th Annual Medical Device and Life Sciences Conference: Innovation, Investing and Regulatory Issues. This interactive conference addresses key legal and business issues facing life sciences companies, medical device, durable medical equipment and diagnostics manufacturers and distributors.
