April 27, 2015

SAN DIEGO – The 10x Medical Device Conference, held from May 4-6 at the Hilton San Diego Mission Valley, will feature an HME-focused panel discussion with some familiar industry faces. The session is entitled, “How Escalating Costs are Giving Rise to Home Care and Telemedicine,” and will discuss how the DME industry will benefit from escalating health care costs.

Kevin Gaffney, group show director, Medtrade (pictured), will moderate the panel that features: Tom Ryan, president and CEO, American Association for Homecare; Jeremy Malecha, senior director, ResMed; Mitchell Yoel, executive vice president, Drive Medical; and Seth Johnson, vice president, Government Affairs, Pride Mobility Products Corp.

Now in its third year, 10x covers timely subjects affecting the entire medical device industry. The event is limited to 200 guests, many of whom tend to be medical device company CEOs, presidents, vice presidents, directors, and senior managers, as well as business development executives from medical device consultancies. Those who wish to attend may go to the registration page and use the code “Speaker” for a $400 discount.

“This is a small conference, but it is packed with influential people,” said Gaffney. “Proper use of home medical equipment is a great way to avoid costly hospital stays, and this discussion will inevitably touch on the fact that HME is part of the solution to the health care woes that the country is facing.”
