CDRH/Payer Summit: Washington, December 14, 2016

There is a longstanding annual winter conference in Washington called "FDA/CMS Summit," held this year on December 14/15, 2016 (here).

This year, there will also be a first annual "CDRH/Payer Summit for Medical Devices," held on December 14.   The goal is described as, "facilitating direct dialogue between medical device executives, payers, investors and CDRH regulators to explain complex regulatory and reimbursement policy."   

While this is a commercial summit (sponsored by Informa), CDRH has launched multiple initiatives between FDA and Payers over the past year (for some examples see here), in addition to making FDA/CMS parallel review permanent a few weeks ago (here).  

From FDA, a redacted set of 190 slides used at the conference is in the cloud, here.
