The Coming Storm: Implications for MedTech Pricing

--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PROS Holdings, Inc. (NYS: PRO) :


The perfect storm of pricing pressure has hit medical device companies. Physician/supplier relationships no longer drive negotiations - procurement professionals and hospital buying centers do. While this has been a significant shift, more change is inevitable as institutions adapt to the national healthcare model. In this environment, increasing price erosion is a growing concern.


In this webinar, featured presenters Christopher D. Provines, Founder, Value Vantage Partners and Phil Holladay, PROS Strategic Consultant, will discuss:

-- The rapidly changing market environment facing medical technology companies.

-- The key drivers of change and the implications for MedTech companies.

-- The specific actions MedTech companies should take to prepare for the coming storm.
