Halloran Virtual Town Hall: How the Inflation Reduction Act is Impacting Product Development Programs

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) contains $500 billion in new spending and tax breaks aimed at reducing healthcare costs, boost clean energy, and increase tax revenues. Since signed into law on August 16, 2022, the life science industry continues to mull its impacts to the healthcare ecosystem.

While the IRA seeks to lower prescription drug costs by allowing Medicare to negotiate prices with product development companies, place an inflation cap on drug prices, and lower out-of-pocket expenses for Medicare recipients, product developers are already noticing significant impacts and juggling tradeoffs. Conversely, many developers remain unaware that the IRA may impact their programs.

Please join us for a virtual Town Hall – How the Inflation Reduction Act is Impacting Product Development Programs – led by Katie McCarthy, Halloran’s Chief Innovation Officer, in collaboration with industry colleagues:

Prepare to learn:

As we navigate this new legislation together, now is the time to collectively share examples, suggestions, and considerations for success.

Upon registration, you will receive a calendar invite with Zoom info.

In the midst of an evolving regulatory landscape, the increasing influence of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the drive for more personalized healthcare, this is an exciting time for the medical device industry from an economic and innovation perspective. Yet, many medical device leaders face an uncertain landscape. To balance opportunity and risk, medical device companies must establish their corporate strategy, align on milestones, assess potential partnering strategy, and chart their regulatory roadmap early on.

Often, many struggle with these components in the early phases and continue to experience challenges as they move throughout later phases of development. Despite these challenges, leaders have a powerful opportunity to refine their approach and establish resiliency and competitive advantage by working through the following:
