Conference Agenda

1:00 - 1:15: Welcoming Remarks

Tiffany Wilson
CEO, Global Center for Medical Innovation

1:15 - 2:15: Opening Keynote - Patients. Clinicians. Technology. Policy.

In our industry, when we think about the future of healthcare and the role of technology in improving patient outcomes, we must consider the role of each character in the story — from the perspective of the patient, the healthcare professional, the technologist, the policy maker’s, among others.  How often do we have the opportunity to understand these perspectives directly from a patient, the surgeon who saved their life, and the manufacturer of the device that was implanted?

Carter Conley is a single father of two beautiful teenager daughters, a patient at Piedmont Healthcare, with an Edwards heart valve implant.  Dr. Jim Kauten is the Director of the Marcus Heart Valve Center at Piedmont Heart Institute and performed Carter’s surgery.  Samantha Ramos is the Director, Global Healthcare Economics and Reimbursement at Edwards Lifesciences, a company that the leader in heart valves and known for empowering patients to help themselves and make a difference in the community.

Moderated by Dr. Jayne Morgan, Director of Innovation at Piedmont Healthcare, join us to hear Carter’s inspiring story and the perspective of the clinician and an industry leader on the road to save lives and improve overall patient outcomes.

2:15 - 2:30: Networking Break
2:30 - 3:25: Panel Discussion: CEO Perspective: Recruiting & Promoting Female Executive Leadership in the Southeast Medtech Industry

U.S. women in medtech trail behind their male peers in leadership positions. U.S. women in all S&P 500 companies hold almost 45% of all professional-level jobs, and 26.5% have achieved executive/senior level management jobs. Not so in medtech. An in-depth analysis in the industry shows that only about 17% of senior positions in medtech are held by women.

Our panel will discuss methods that medtech companies can take to bridge this gap and strategies women can use to work their way into the top.
