A Medtech Insider’s Walk Through the Healthcare System
As a long-time medical product development engineer and executive, Bill Betten has been involved in product developments ranging from medical imaging to surgical instruments to wearable devices. However, a brain tumor diagnosis earlier this year led him on a journey through that same medical system as a patient. Join us for an insider’s journey through the medical system, ranging from diagnosis, insurance, surgeon/hospital selection, 7 hours of surgery, ICU care, pain management, and recovery. Finally, he’ll discuss how the trip through the system has impacted his view of “person-centric” product development and care.
