Why is medical technology (med tech) innovation an important growth area for the healthcare industry at large? What are some of the areas of med tech innovation that your company is focusing on that will shape the future of healthcare?
Alan: Med Tech innovation is an important growth area, given that patient testing will become more and more distributed – and, at some point, be conducted in the home setting. This will improve the health of patients, decrease the costs of healthcare delivery due to poorly-managed conditions, and create entirely new markets for innovation. We are focusing on our ability to create an ecosystem of connected devices that will provide our customers with all the tools they will need to be successful in such a decentralized environment.
