A Q1 Productions 2019 White Paper

Who We Are

Each year, Q1 Productions researches, develops and hosts over 50 unique conferences for executives working in the life science industry, covering topics from product research & development to regulatory clearance and market access, with a particular focus on the development of educational content and programming for medical device and diagnostic firms. Over the course of this research, Conference Program Managers conduct interviews with more than 2,000 individual executives, manage over 1,000 executive presenters and bring together more than 3,500 industry executives that participate in the dynamic programming Q1 develops.

Industry Trends: Medical Device & Diagnostic
As 2018 came to a close, Q1 conducted a survey with medical device industry clients, regulatory authorities, as well as consultant partners to take the pulse of the industry and to get a gauge of priorities, challenges, concerns and where the industry is headed in 2019. This report contains much of the feedback from the hundreds of responses received, which focused on a number of core challenges as executives considered the year ahead, which Q1 grouped into several areas:

Pricing & Reimbursement
EU Medical Device & IVD Regulations
Regulatory Challenges
Technology Trends
Corporate Resources

Q1 Productions will continue to stay abreast of all industry developments to provide educational content and thought leadership to industry followers. Please visit our events page for details on upcoming educational programming and news.
