Medical device reimbursements are the payments paid by the private insurers or a third-party insurer to a health care provider, usually in return for the cost incurred by healthcare service providers for using a medical device. If the coverage under reimbursement has no certainties, it becomes difficult to analyze the ROI, thereby, creating obstacles by limiting innovation.

However, there are several other challenges for medical device manufacturers that are associated with medical reimbursements. Though these factors vary depending on the geographic region and the demographics, there are a few common factors that pose major challenges for players in the medical device industry. This gives rise to questions such as, what are the major medical reimbursement challenges and its impact on the medical device industry? In an effort to help medical device industry players, Infiniti Research has curated a list of the top challenges and the impact associated with medical reimbursements.

“Medical device companies will have to invest significantly in moving beyond products and devise effective business models to tackle the challenges and evolve in a value-driven healthcare ecosystem,” says an industry expert from Infiniti.
