Medtronic cardiac devices are vulnerable to malicious hackers who could potentially not only intercept data between the patient and their provider, but also may be able to manipulate the implantable cardiac devices, possibly leading to serious adverse events and death. US FDA says patients should continue to use the devices as usual but should look out for telltale signs of an attack. Meanwhile, Medtronic claims it was aware of the issue and contends that patients shouldn't be concerned: “To date, no cyberattack, privacy breach, or patient harm has been observed," a spokesman says.

Cardionovum: As DEBs Heat Up, Who Needs The US Market?

German serial entrepreneur Michael Orlowski achieved a successful exit in his first cardiovascular device company, EuroCor, by selling not to a US-based giant, but to an Indian conglomerate, Opto Circuits.

With CE mark in hand, Cardionovum is preparing to launch its products in Europe.

Owning the Disease: A New Business Model For Medical Technology Companies

The convergence of expanded access, lower reimbursement rates, higher velocity of innovation, diminished pools of venture capital, the advent of personalized care and a growing demand for improved patient outcomes has created ripples that already are altering the economics and operating dynamics of health care.
