PA Consulting talks on future technology trends and driving breakthrough products


PA Consulting Group will deliver two talks on the future of healthcare at MedTec Europe on Tuesday 23 March 2010 in Stuttgart, Germany.

At 10.20 hrs Ian Rhodes, a Partner in PA's Healthcare Group, will talk on - Revolution in Healthcare: future technology trends. Ian will outline significant changes the healthcare industry is facing, healthcare complexities, strategic information use, cost-effectiveness but at what level, new payment systems allowing new business models, how technology drives revenues away from traditional suppliers, the squeeze on profitability of traditional incumbents.
At 14.00 hrs Kevin Deane, a Senior Consultant in Technology & Innovation at PA, will talk on: From innovation to product: understanding market trends to drive breakthrough products. Why are some products game-changers in their markets, while others fail to make an impact? Kevin will consider three key factors: anticipating the market, reacting rapidly and decisively within R&D, and building an appetite in the market pre-launch.
MedTec Europe, 23-25 March 2010, Landesmesse, Stuttgart, Germany.
