Moving the HME Industry Forward

New Faces from New Places

July 6, 2015

ATLANTA – The June 8 Medtrade Monday explored the aging in place movement and its ability to draw new faces into home care—where building professionals and HME providers share similar goals.

Additional affiliated professions from the CPAP and rehab worlds may also benefit from Medtrade attendance. “Venture capitalists, mergers and acquisition professionals, sleep medicine professionals, and PTs/OTs know about the baby boom generation and the opportunity it represents,” says Gary Sheehan, MBA, president and CEO of Cape Medical Supply Inc, Sandwich, Mass. “They could certainly benefit from an in-person visit to the showroom floor at Medtrade. Knowledge gained from Medtrade could help them, and their patients, in many different ways.”

“I agree that professionals in the sleep medicine community would find an in-person visit to the showroom floor quite useful,” adds Alan Hickey, founder of the American Sleep and Breathing Academy. “The products, knowledge, and networking at Medtrade could help patients seen by physicians and sleep techs. Sleep apnea patients who suffer from other problems would benefit from refferals to HME providers who go beyond the scope of sleep-related products.”

Early registration for Medtrade is officially open, and organizers are preparing to make it the best Medtrade ever. “If you are looking to save money, it pays to act now,” says Kevin Gaffney, group show director, Medtrade. “You can save up to $75 on the Expo, and more than $200 on the Conference over later rates and/or day-of-show rates. Whether you are a regular attendee or considering your first trip, remember that demand for HME will continue to skyrocket, and we can help you succeed with relevant education and exhibitors.”
