Recently I posted a blog here about my observations of the medical device space over the last five years and how it has changed during my five-year tenure at Medical Device Daily. Like the industry, we too have changed a great deal since I joined the MDD staff in October 2006.
The first big change during that timeframe is the launching of Medical Device Daily Perspectives, our free, weekly e-zine, MDD Perspectives offering viewpoints on developments within the med-tech industry. In that, we aim to go beyond the news to provide you with a fresh outlook on the companies, trends, people and events taking place in the industry today. It goes beyond the who, what, where, when, how, and why to help you see understand how it affects you and why you should care.
Not long after MDD Perspectives launched, we saw an opportunity to bring you news as it is still developing, giving you a sneak peak at what to expect in our next daily issue of MDD. With that, the Medical Device Daily Midday Report was born. It's an email sent to our subscribers typically once a day (more in the event of late breaking news) offering a snippet of what we are working on for the next day’s issue. We figured we owed our subscribers that little heads-up on what to look for the following day.
As social networking has rapidly taken on a life of its own over the past couple of years, we knew we needed to engage our readers through sites like Facebook and Twitter in an effort to interact with you and also give you yet another venue of finding out what is happening at that very moment – tomorrow’s headlines today, so to speak, in 140 characters or less!
Earlier this year we launched the Medical Device Daily Perspectives Blog site. Similar to the weekly e-zine, this site brings you critical news, analysis, debates, commentary and camaraderie related to the med-tech industry.
We have worked hard over the last half a decade to keep up with the way information technology has changed and to deliver the news to you more immediately than ever before.
Of course there is always room for improvement and we do challenge ourselves on a regular basis to do better.
More blogs. More tweets. More breaking news alerts.
