We started this site for a simple reason: We couldn’t find any stories about medical devices we wanted to read.
We knew that, behind every life-changing innovation, there lies a compelling story. So we set out to discover the tales behind the truly astounding technology being developed here every day.
That news goes beyond the business and financial details, though you’ll find plenty of those here. After all, the medical devices industry is a major driver of the region’s economy, accounting for 2 percent of the state’s gross domestic product and employing roughly twice as many people as the pharmaceutical industry.
You’ll also find magazine-length features and profiles, close looks at the movers, shakers and players driving the industry.
We’re also delighted to host blogs by experts and leaders in a variety of disciplines, including veteran healthcare reporter Tinker Ready and David Spenciner, a man of too many talents to list here. We count ourselves lucky to be working with them.
We’ve gathered all the relevant medical devices news from around the world we could find and collected it in a single place, our Feeds page.
And there’s our already robust business directory, which with your help we aim to build into a one-stop resource listing the companies serving the industry’s every need. We hope this will be a powerful tool in helping you develop your business.
We also hope it serves, in some small way, as a catalyst for the local economy. There’s an amazing amount of talent in Massachusetts and New England, homegrown and imported, and we hope our readers will “think local” and help build our medical devices and life sciences community into an ever-more powerful and connected market.
In short, we hope to provide as complete a resource for the Massachusetts and New England medical devices industry as you’ll find anywhere. We hope you’ll let us know what you think, where we’re doing well and where we can improve. Please let us know how we’re doing.
MassDevice aims to provide an independent, unbiased take on a vital, underexposed sector of region’s economy. Sooner or later, everyone who reads this page will need a medical device of one kind or another. When that happens, we hope you remember you read about it here first.
