I know it’s risky but if we play nice this could be a productive conversation.
With one Presidental debate behind us, which candidate would be better for the medical devices industry? Or will either candidate be equally good (or bad) for industry?
The Medical Device Tax suspension still has more than a year left in it. Will the election help determine whether the suspension is permanent? (We had a related conversation at http://bit.ly/medtax-suspended a few months back.)
Lastly, do you think the next few years for the medical device industry will be better than the last few? If so, why?
And again, remember this is a professional forum. Respectful comments only, please.
SEATS ADDED TO THE 13485:2016 WEBINAR
In the five years I’ve led the group, we’ve never had 1100 people register for a webinar so quickly.
If you tried to register and got locked out, please try again at http://medgroup.biz/iso13485 now that I’ve added another thousand seats.
Jon Speer from greenlight.guru will discuss all the changes ISO made in its long awaited revision to 13485, the global standard for medical device quality management systems.
This is the first revision of the standard since 2003, and it represents some major changes including the inclusion of risk management throughout the QMS, greater emphasis on quality management throughout the entire product lifecycle and supply chain, and much more.
Specifically you will learn:
The live event will be Tuesday, October 4 at noon, New York time. We’ll record it and make the replay, slides, and transcript available to all who register.

I have seen no mention by Ms. Clinton, but since the ACA policy was established by the current Democratic administration, one might expect the tax to be reinstituted if given the chance.
On the Republican side, while Mr. Trump also has not expressed an opinion, Mike Pence is on record as being firmly against the tax, so that might be the better option.
If I can open a can of worms, Gary Johnson, with his desire for eliminating taxes on both personal income and corporations, might be the best solution for this topic. Of course, that is a long shot and he would then have to work with Congress…

A company supplying commodity medical devices with half a dozen competitors may be squeezed on profits & declining sales.
A company innovating with better, simpler, less expensive products or ones giving unique usability may be growing leaps and bounds.
I’m not sure about either candidate on economy, but it probably doesn’t matter, because I don’t think either one will actually be running the country if they are elected. Nor do I think that what either candidate says while campaigning will correlate much with what actually happens post-election.

I’m not necessarily saying DT will be any better for the future of medical devices, but certainly his pro-business, anti-regulation attitude, is a step in the right direction. However, he hasn’t said or done anything specific toward our industry that would indicate a much brighter future.
