    1. Healthcare Reform: Will Device Makers End Up in the Red or in the Pink?

      Tracking the fate of U.S. healthcare reform is like watching a patient being wheeled into the operating room while the surgeons bicker in the corridor over the best way to save his life. Despite the current level of uncertainty surrounding the mid-summer debate, medical device makers should emerge from the legislative operation in relatively good health, according to several industry executives and at least one analyst. Given the focus on cost containment, obvious concerns have surfaced over the ultimate impact on device sales, company profits, product development, and investor confidence. But a quick roundup of industry opinions reveals both ...

    2. Healthcare Reform: Will Device Makers End Up in the Red or in the Pink?

      Despite some concerns, execs say device sector should emerge from the legislative OR in good health. ..The Imalux system uses optical coherence tomography (OCT) to visualize tissue in real-time “at the site of patient care,” according to the description on the company’s Web site. Burke obviously wants his company’s system to have a chance in the market. However, he’s worried about the effect that low-ball reductions in payments for imaging procedures based on AMA’s current procedural terminology (CPT) imaging codes will have on Imalux’s chances.
