On Wednesday, September 30th, Frank Guinta, Aaron Josephson, and David Rothkopf of MEDIcept, hosted a webinar introducing the Alliance for Medical Device Innovators. This new alliance helps small- and medium-sized medical device companies navigate federal and state governments to expand and protect their markets. Topics covered in this webinar include: 

  • Defining and successfully executing a strategy for dealing with the FDA (marketing authorization), CMS (coverage), DoD, and other federal agencies who may be gatekeepers or customers for your products
  • Leveraging federal policies and programs related to coronavirus/COVID-19, including funding for treatments and manufacturing 
  • Improving access to federal and state grant money, enabling more research and development and ultimately marketing of novel devices for various health conditions
  • Crafting legislation or other policy deliverables (e.g., regulations, guidance documents) to create a favorable policy environment for a product or company
  • Improving federal and state policymaker awareness about innovative medical device companies and their products and how they can be used to help solve public health and public policy challenges
