Providing Solutions in Challenging Times

December 2, 2013

ALPHARETTA, GA – These are interesting times for the health care industry. The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) doesn’t seem to be making health insurance as affordable as advertised. 

The HME sector has been dealing with national competitive bidding for more than 10 years now (either the threat or the reality) and we were told this wonderful program would save money for taxpayers and provide better coverage and care for patients. Sound familiar?

Bureaucracy with a dash of more bureaucracy is clearly not the answer, but try telling that to bureaucrats. Businesses grow and thrive because of the ideas of people, and one size does not fit all.

For thirty-plus years, Medtrade has been working hard to provide the spark to help those in the HME industry build upon ideas, ideas shared by other people, to grow their businesses and help patients find the solutions they need to enjoy a high quality life despite any physical issues they may suffer from.

Medtrade Spring 2014 will continue and build upon that long standing tradition and will offer providers the solutions, ideas, and connections to survive and grow despite the best efforts of the bureaucrats.

I invite you to join us March 10-12 at the fabulous Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas to find and offer the solutions to help your business, and industry, to build and grow.
