AusMedtech 2021 programme launched

An inspiring line-up of Australian and global keynotes and panels has been revealed as the AusMedtech 2021 conference programme is launched. AusMedtech 2021: Reimagine and reconnect provides virtual half-day sessions across five days, 17 – 21 May, that represent Australia’s medtech industry.

Keynote speakers include Dr Sean Parsons, Found and Chief Executive Officer, who will share insights on the Australian success story: Ellume; and Kate Quirke, Managing Director and Chief Executive, who will present on how Alicidion’s built their business through accessing the global market.

Digital diagnostics company Ellume caught attention around the globe last month with a $231.8 million agreement with the US Departments of Defense and Health and Human Services, to accelerate domestic US production of its COVID-19 home tests. The breathtaking deal was a stand-alone achievement, but for Ellume and its founder Sean Parsons, it marked a spate of good news that has positioned the company as a global contender and Australian success story.

Alcidion is providing clinicians with real time data via mobile devices to enhance decision making. Currently in 307 hospitals across the UK, Australia and New Zealand, they have 68,000 users and have captured more than 1 billion observations at the 50,000 hospital beds.

The five-day AusMedtech 2021 programme will traverse the medtech pipeline, with themes across the week including: product development, idea generation, feasibility prototyping and manufacturing; regulation, clinical trials and reimbursement; investment, investor relations, partnering and grants; marketing, distribution and partnering for market access; and AusMedtech’s inaugural Early Stage Investment Forum.

More keynotes and speakers will be revealed over the upcoming weeks.

AusMedtech 2021 is Australia’s premier medical technology conference. It is developed by AusBiotech and industry, for industry, and brings together key stakeholders of the Australian and international devices and diagnostics sector to help prepare the industry sector for its changing landscape.
