We’ve changed the look here at MassDevice, New England’s top source for medical device news, as part of our constant drive to improve the site for our readers, bloggers and sponsors.
And while you may not be as delighted as we are with our new look (after posting some 5,000 pages of content you get a little tired of looking at the same thing), we hope you’ll find the improvements to your liking. Please let us know either way bear with us as we iron out the kinks.
Here are a few of the changes to help acquaint you with our new digs:
- More stories “above the fold:” The first thing you probably noticed is that we’re highlighting what we do best here at MassDevice: Providing up-to-the-minute coverage of the medical device world. That’s why you’ll see eight to 10 breaking news stories right away when you enter the site. These stories will cycle through the center column as news breaks. But don’t worry if you miss them; you can always find the top three news stories just by scrolling down, or by visiting the News page where every story is permanently archived.
- Highlights from our original reports and expert bloggers: Just to the right of the center news column, you’ll find quick links to our popular “Voices of an industry page, which brings you into the corner offices of the movers and shakers in the medical device industry.
You’ll also see a direct link to our MassDevice Reports, to the right of the Voices of an Industry button. We’re highlighting our “Eye on the FDA” report, an in-depth examination and analysis of 10 years worth of 510(k) clearance data from the Food & Drug Administration’s predicate device approval process. We’ll be releasing more intelligence reports in the near future, keeping tabs on the FDA as well as other important medical device issues including mergers and acquisitions and intellectual property.
We’re also bringing our roster expert bloggers (literally) front-and-center. If you’d like to inquire about blogging on MassDevice, please contact our editorial team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Better representation for our sponsors: We couldn’t do what we do without the assistance of our annual sponsors, so we’ve adjusted the homepage to better highlight their support. Please take a look at all of our advertisers (they’re really doing great things, and theiur support helps sustain our mission).
If you’d like to see your company represented here, please contact our sales team.
- Better visibility for our jobs board: We’ve added a homepage tease for our medical device industry jobs board, where we connect leading medical device companies with top-flight candidates. Our jobs board is a great way to attract the best talent in the medical device industry.
There’s a wealth of information behind this home page, and wehope the new look makes it easier for you to find it. For example, did you know you can look up almost any company in New England’s medical device industry on the MassDevice.com Directory? We hope you’ll take a few minutes to look around and let us know what you think. And, as always, thank you for reading MassDevice.
