Anesthesia Market: Patient Safety Drives Growth

Patient safety dominated the discussions at the 2007 annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists. Although medtech manufacturers have long focused on improving safety, that movement is being further fueled by a growing number of performance measures and documentation requirements. In addition, pay-for-performance initiatives are gaining in popularity as health care buyers seek ways to drive quality improvements, putting more pressure on hospitals and physicians to provide and document quality care in order to maximize their reimbursements.

Disrupting Ultrasound

In ultrasound, small companies are few and far between; here, capital equipment companies rarely get venture backing, and the diversity of clinical segments that ultrasound serves requires sellers to have both large technical and marketing resources. But small companies like SonoSite, with new high-performing and lower-cost hand-held devices hope to disrupt the big-company, radiology-oriented status quo. The small companies are carving out some new non-radiology markets--guidance for catheter insertion, emergency medicine, Ob/Gyn and primary care--by positioning ultrasound as a new kind of triage tool.
