Tina Tan

Editor-in-Chief

London, UK
Since she began covering the medtech industry in the late 1990s, Tina Tan has seen significant changes in the industry landscape: companies bulking up to become sector heavyweights, unwieldy conglomerates restructuring to get leaner, new players with game-changing technologies growing and thriving, struggling firms sadly fizzling into oblivion. She has also witnessed how the ever-evolving healthcare environment has impacted the way medical device companies operate, inciting them to develop new technologies – and services – to meet the needs of patient, physician and, of courses, the healthcare payer. As Editor, and prior to that Business Editor, of Clinica Medtech Intelligence, it is Tina’s experience and understanding of the key issues affecting medical device companies that has enabled her to maintain the high quality, business-critical content of Clinica for which the product is recognized globally. Tina has also dabbled in other sectors outside of medtech, having written for an eyewear fashion and an alternative health publication. But as attractive as it was to get cost-price Armani frames and free samples of organic root vegetables, Tina found herself being drawn back to the excitement of the medtech sector. Like many of her long-time colleagues covering this beat, she still marvels at the incredible gizmos and gadgets that are coming out from the industry, especially from the start-ups, and the genius creativity behind these potentially life-saving technologies.
