In Medical Devices, Is "Good Enough" Good Enough?

Executive Summary

Device companies have historically been rewarded for even incremental technology enhancements with premium pricing by a price-insensitive customer, all in the spirit that no improvement to the clinical episode would go unrewarded.

Instead, payors, hospitals and even physicians, encouraged by government policy makers, will increasingly look for technology that delivers an acceptable clinical outcome at a better price.
