Foliage Vice President of Consulting Services, Chris Miles, to Address MD&M West Audience: "Using Software Design to Drive Medical Device Differentiation"

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 3, 2014) -

Medical device manufacturers are confronting a fundamental shift in their business models and their approaches to the marketplace. Whereas hardware used to be the great differentiator, its commoditization will compel manufacturers to differentiate themselves by how their devices support higher levels of interoperability, interconnectivity and data integration. This presentation will help answer the question: "How do you transition your organization from one that has focused primarily on hardware to a more software-and data-centric one that embraces systems and system-of-systems thinking and approaches?"

His presentation will include:

  • Using software and data management as a differentiator in the market
  • Making the transition to more data-centric business models

Foliage will also be at the MD&M Exposition, Feb. 11-13, booth #2990

Monday, February 10th at 1:00 p.m. PST

MD&M West Conference and Exposition, Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA
