Date and Time: Tuesday, March 21, 2017, 10:45 am PT
Featuring: Creating New Value via Iterative Innovation
Session Speaker: Yuhgo Yamaguchi
MedTech companies such as yours must develop innovative new services to support your products if you’re going to win in value-based care. But how will you design and deploy service experiences that bring significant new value beyond iterating your current product offerings? In this lively roundtable, we’ll discuss using a patient-centered approach to ensure that your product-and service packages effectively serve customers and users, “backcasting” your way
into short- and long-term development roadmaps, and enabling your organization to bring new offerings to market consistently by assessing and developing your innovation capability.
