ProcurMed 2017, a Canadian MedTech Procurement Forum, took place today May 11th in Montreal. Our CEO Pierre-Alexandre Fournier shared experiences and lessons learned in working with hospitals in Canada and the United States.
Hospital procurement and innovation departments, payors, and medical devices and health IT companies from Ontario, Quebec, Massachusetts, Vermont, and other states shared ideas on how to make it easier for innovative technologies to go through the procurement process. We talked shared risk, integrating pilots in procurement, and how to do procurement in a value-based healthcare system.

Hexoskin presented its technology for health monitoring at the Wearable Expo at Tokyo Big Sight this week. We were present on the show floor with our Japanese partners Kissei Comtec, and had the chance to visit Tokyo and Matsumoto.
Dozens of top health research organizations and sports performance labs in Japan use Hexoskin's open data platform for physiology monitoring. If you're in Japan you can contact Kissei Comtec for Japanese training and support.
