Medical device use fees going up
. The fees that medical device manufacturers must pay the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to gain marketing clearance for new technologies will rise beginning Oct. 1, 2017, per the Medical Device User Fee Amendments of 2017. Small U.S.-based businesses – that is, those having gross receipts or sales of no more than $100 million for the most recent tax year – are eligible for a reduced small-business fee. In August, the FDA issued a guide to help manufacturers determine whether they qualify as a small business. Medical device user fee rates for FY 2018 are spelled out in the Federal Register of Aug. 29.

Made in China 2025. The Chinese government is seeking explosive growth in biomedical and high-end medical device manufacturing over the next decade, according to Medical Design and Outsourcing. From 2004 to 2014, the compound growth rate of China’s medical device industry was 25 percent, much higher than the 7 to 8 percent global growth rate. However, the major products in China’s domestic medical device industry are low-cost and low-tech. But that may change. The “Made in China 2025” plan focuses on developing domestic, high-end, profitable medical device such as imaging equipment, medical robots, fully degradable vascular stents and other high-value medical supplies. The government will support domestic manufacturers to improve their R&D capabilities.

Shaking things up. Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry has published profiles of nine inventors, entrepreneurs and researchers who could shape the medical technology field for years to come. Read about them in Medtech’s Rising Stars of 2017.

Hold the champagne. Normally, the medical device industry is risk-averse and cautious about adopting new technologies because of the critical nature of the products and the regulatory hurdles needed to bring these offerings to market, says an article in Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry. However, the industry’s dive into the Internet of Things (IoT) means companies believe in the value of embracing this technology. Insurers might start thinking the same thing. But people can’t sing and dance in the streets just yet. Why? It has something to do with cybersecurity – or lack of it.
