The Medtech Spotlight enhancement merges DRG's Medical Device industry expertise with the knowledge of Market Overview analysts. The result is an industry-specific digest that leverages the in-depth data and analysis of Market Overviews and pinpoints the market drivers at a metro-level. Medtech Spotlights gauge the impact of managed care dynamics on medical device utilization, spending, and purchasing decisions.

The enhancement allows users to stay up-to-date on any key developments in a metro market impacting the medical device industry, as well as compare a market to the national distribution of commercial, Medicaid, Medicare and uninsured populations. The analysis also dives into medical device opportunities and threats within the market.

"The shift to value-based care is impacting medical device companies in diverse ways in metro areas across the U.S.," said Josh Kelley, Senior Director, U.S. Regional & Customer Segment Insights.

"In Chicago, for example, Advocate Health Care's aggressive move toward risk-based contracting and clinical integration is likely to increase scrutiny on healthcare spending and the value proposition for medical devices," Kelley continued. "At the same time, the proliferation of high-deductible health plans and cost-saving ACOs in Northern New Jersey could restrict medical device utilization by making patients and providers more selective about the procedures they use. When navigating these market-specific developments, an analysis that explains the impact at a local level is a powerful tool."

This new tool is part of the Market Overviews product portfolio, which takes a deep dive into key healthcare players and market drivers in the 87 most dynamic metro areas. It provides expert insight into the shift to value-based care, reimbursement reform, and the growing power of integrated delivery networks (IDNs).
