MedtechFORUM – Maternal Health: The Canary in the Coal Mine

Description:

MedtechWOMEN invites you to join us for the third episode of MedtechFORUM: Women’s Health in 2024 and Beyond. 

In 2022, the maternal mortality rate (MMR) in the U.S. was 22 deaths per 100,000 live births. This rate is notably higher compared to many other developed countries. Black women in the U.S. experience a significantly higher MMR, with a rate of 49.5 deaths per 100,000 live births. This figure is more than double the overall U.S. rate and highlights a stark racial disparity in maternal health outcomes. These disparities reflect underlying issues related to access to quality healthcare, socio-economic factors, systemic biases within the healthcare system, and disparities in health outcomes based on race and ethnicity. This powerful discussion, moderated by Nada O. Hanafi, MSc, MPH, Founder, MedTech Strategic Advisors, LLC and Co-Founder, MedTech Color, will highlight how addressing these disparities is crucial to improving maternal health outcomes for all women in the United States.

MedtechVISION 2024 Annual Conference

The Power of We: Together Moving Medtech Forward

How do you address industry challenges no one can solve alone? By forming new partnerships that allow us to do more, together. This year MedtechVISON will focus on the power of new and emerging partnerships. We will discuss how medical device companies can build broad support systems with adjacent ecosystem players to keep innovation moving forward, broaden access to existing and emerging products, and help deliver on the promise of health to all patients. The Medtech industry has had decades to prepare for the growing needs of aging adults, learn about the underserved members of our communities, and improve the bottom line of safety, effectiveness and cost. But the last five years have seen an unprecedented level of disruption to our businesses, to say nothing of our lives and health. The processes and resources that built the great medical companies of yesterday will not meet the patient needs of today and tomorrow. Given the complexity of modern healthcare, we cannot thrive as an industry alone.
