Trusted Advisors for Life-Science Executives   

2012 Medical Device Industry Research

The increasing pace of globalization and outsourcing in the Medical Device industry has created demanding business, technology and regulatory challenges. As one industry executive put it, "I sleep like a baby - I wake up every 2 hours and cry."

To identify key pain-points and innovative strategies that brand owners, their partners, and regulators are undertaking to cope in this new environment, Axendia is launching this important research study.

This research will evaluate the impact of globalization and outsourcing across the entire Medical Device life cycle (from R&D design, supply chain, manufacturing and distribution). The study will provide insights into how industry leaders and regulators are utilizing innovative strategies and systems to improve visibility, control, and collaboration. It will also provide a roadmap to enable organization to mitigate risk and increase business success.
