surrounding the local industry landscape. Hosted by Minneapolis-based

availability that will affect the viability of local medical start-ups.

to manage chronic care costs including behavioral coaching applications.

Minnesota's leading providers of medical technology and hear how they're
navigating local market challenges and opportunities," said Congressman
Paulsen. "They shared their clear concerns about the tax and regulatory
environment, as well as the importance of investment in the MedTech
indstry. They also reaffirmed that the medical device tax is directly
