MDMA hosted a member-wide webinar this week to analyze the election results and what it will mean for the regulatory environment, reimbursement and more.

"The election results make it clear that Americans want bipartisan solutions to the challenges confronting our economy, and that elected officials should remove barriers to innovation and job creation," said Mark Leahey, President and CEO of MDMA. "Repealing the medical device tax is a perfect example where there is broad, bipartisan support in Congress to do just that, and MDMA remains laser-focused on accomplishing this goal. While there will continue to be passionate debates about how to spur the economy, policies such as the medical device tax have already led to job losses and cuts to research and development, and America's workers and patients can't afford either."

MDMA is closely monitoring pending legislation and working with members of Congress as they are expected to tackle significant pieces of legislation in the lame duck session and in the beginning of the 113th Congress.
