Medical appliance maker and technology company Medtronic, Inc. (Minneapolis, MN, U.S.) has announced that its chairman and CEO Art Collins will serve a 2-year term as chairman of the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed), effective immediately.

In his inaugural address to AdvaMed members, Mr. Collins noted, "Never before has medical technology had such an extraordinary capacity to prevent, diagnose and treat disease. However, we are facing significant obstacles that increasingly limit patients' access to the medical technology they desperately need."

Mr. Collins continued, "I challenge our industry to take a more collaborative approach -- and a stronger leadership role -- in finding innovative solutions to the challenges we face. The patients who could benefit from our breakthrough medical technologies are counting on us to champion this cause."

In support of improving patient access, AdvaMed has announced an initiative that will drive continued progress toward these goals. AdvaMed has established the Institute for Medical Technology Innovation, a new and independent foundation that will partner with thought leaders and research institutions to quantify the value of medical technology innovation and then broadly disseminate the results. Work of the Institute will soon be underway.

AdvaMed is an industry association representing more than 1,100 manufacturers of medical devices, diagnostic products, and medical information systems. AdvaMed members and subsidiaries are said to manufacture nearly 90 percent of the U.S. $75 billion of health care technology products purchased annually in the U.S., and more than 50 percent of the $175 billion purchased annually around the world.
