The agenda features interdisciplinary perspectives on unmet clinical needs, financing, regulatory and reimbursement policy, and evolving healthcare delivery models. Specific main sessions topics include: 

  • Shaping Innovation Priorities: Global Demographic and Population Health Trends 
  • Emerging Models of Healthcare Delivery 
  • Predicting the Future of MedTech: Transformative Concepts and Technological Trends 
  • Macro and Micro Financing Trends 
  • How Robotics Are Redefining Health Care 
  • Pain Points in Healthcare: Challenges and Opportunities  

The Forum will also examine cutting-edge breakthroughs and trends in cardiovascular medicine. Featured technology workshops will center on emerging devices and prospects for structural heart disease, interventional heart failure, and stroke interventions. 

“The TCT MedTech Innovation Forum will convene stakeholders from across the ecosystem to address core issues and share perspectives,” said Andrew Cleeland, Chief Executive Officer of Fogarty Innovation. “Our goals are to uncover insights that help innovators better understand and address market needs and build meaningful collaborations that help important new technologies reach patients as soon as possible.”
