Health Industry Hub | January 29, 2024 |

MedTech & Diagnostics News: In an interview featuring international guest Roberta (Bobbie) Dressen, President/CEO of Medical Alley, and Dr Deama Amr, Director of Clinical Research and Medical Science at Medtronic ANZ, Health Industry Hub delves into the recent visit of Governor Tim Walz of Minnesota to Australia to foster international ties and explore healthcare synergies.

Minnesota has been a centre of health innovation for decades. The state houses the #1 hospital in the US, the Mayo Clinic, and #1 health technology cluster in the world, including Medtronic.

Unravelling the roots of Medical Alley’s global healthcare movement, the podcast explores what compelled visionaries like Medtronic’s founder Earl Bakken to launch this initiative. As Medical Alley approaches its 40th anniversary, Ms Dressen discusses the organisation’s goals and focus areas, detailing its mission in reshaping the healthcare landscape and driving transformative change.

The conversation takes a turn towards the crucial role of clinical trials in medtech innovation. Dr Amr sheds light on Medtronic’s local focus on research and development, highlighting the obstacles that need to be overcome to ensure a thriving research sector in medtech.

With Medical Alley boasting a vast network of over 800 organisations, the interview explores the pivotal role it plays in supporting start-ups, including those from Australia. Ms Dressen shares insights into what is crucial for fuelling a dynamic innovation ecosystem and discusses the lessons Australia can learn from Medical Alley’s approach.

The interview concludes with valuable advice from Ms Dressen for both large medtech multinationals and local startups in Australia as they navigate the evolving and complex healthcare ecosystem.
