    The cloud. You’ve done the research, you know if you don’t act you’ll be left behind. You’ve chosen your development partners,  maybe you’ve even gone as far as connecting your device. Congratulations…now what do you do? You’ve made all the right decisions but you may have overlooked a key question. How can you utilize this connected device to bring in the revenue you need?

    This panel will focus on the things you need to do to ensure you will be able to make money on this newly connected medical device. Panelists will include experts in the design and regulatory area of mobile health and cloud services. You will hear actionable do’s and don’ts from representatives of both large and small companies who’ve successfully launched a product in this space.

    • What does an increase in patient efficiency/data monitoring due to biotechnology portfolios? Will this increase channels to revenue?

    • What are the regulatory mandates surrounding the sector?
    • Does the move away from ‘normative’ medicine create or hinder market opportunity? How will technology platforms in biotech reflect this movement?

    For Investors:

    • How can investors assess the impact that these trends have on their current and future portfolio companies?
    • What is the regulatory path for these technologies?
