Physicians and healthcare administrators rightly need to ask:
– Will it improve patient outcomes and the patient experience
– Will it increase productivity?
– Will there be a positive return on investment?
– If a technology is adopted, how will it be implemented?
That is where an conversation with Aaron Ali MD – a physician, entrepreneur and consultant – is instructive.
As Dr. Ali is a board certified anesthesiologist and an active member in the Austin medical community, he understands the needs of physicians. In his role as co-founder and CEO of MedtoMarket Consulting, Dr. Ali sees firsthand the gap between the medical device industry and physicians.
MedtoMarket consulting services provide “unbiased feedback” to bridge this divide and help companies establish credibility with key stakeholders. In the buildup to the Medical Device and Technology Summit, (co-hosted by Spectrum and the Austin Technology Council). I reached out to Dr. Ali who is on the steering committee.
Why did you get involved with the MedTechTX Summit?
Aaron Ali, MD: I believe the goals set forth by MedTechTx organizers meets many of the needs of their participants. There are many individuals and groups fighting hard to keep their companies alive in the difficult medtech world of today and getting key insider information to help your company complete the last mile is incredibly vital.
The MedTechTX Summit brings to the table real players who can give you real feedback to help entrepreneurs succeed. I personally enjoy being a part of an organization with sharp individuals who understand the medtech landscape and how to navigate its ever changing challenges.
