In Women's Health, Hologic Stays Ahead of the Curve

Hologic is garnering more attention these days than it might have in the past because it's just come off an "annus mirabilis." In 2006, Hologic made three vertical acquisitions in the area of breast cancer detection, and it reported stellar financial results. The company is now a market leader in osteoporosis assessment and has an approxmately 50% share of the conventional mammography customer base as well as an early lead in digital mammgoraphy, which is remarkable considering that it is a mid-sized company competing in capital equipment markets against the likes of GE and Siemens.

Conceptus' Re-Birth: Surviving in Women's Health

The early-to-mid 1990s marked the rise of a huge wave of interest in women's health among device start-ups and investors. Several women's health companies, including Conceptus, were among the ill-fated IPO Class of 1996 that largely failed to meet investor expectations. Most of these start-ups are no longer around, but Conceptus re-trenched and shifted its emphasis from fertility to a new approach to sterilization, which finally received FDA clearance late last year. The company has survived the pitfalls that derailed other women's health start-ups, most notably a customer group that is difficult to access and slow to adopt new technology, and a challenging reimbursement environment, but in doing so, may be the exception that proves the rule.

PSS Redux-: The Fall and Rise of a Physician Supply Company

PSS built a strikingly successful physician supply company in the 1980s and early 1990s through a combination of an aggressive, no-holds-barred approach to sales and a strategy that targeted solo practitioners and small physician groups. Everything was going swimmingly until the mid 1990s when the company fell prey to a series of bad breaks and a loss of coroprate focus that nearly drove it out of busines. Now, led by a new management team, the company is putting the pieces back together.
