State MedTech Alliance

What is SMTA?

The State Medical Technology Alliance (SMTA) is a consortium of state and regional trade associations representing their local medical technology companies. SMTA’s mission is to collectively support the medical technology industry on the local, state and national levels by fostering a collaborative environment through sharing of best practices, promoting the industry, and advocating for public policies that support innovation.

State Based Competitiveness Agenda

AdvaMed in collaboration with SMTA has developed a State Competitiveness Agenda outlining various policy options states should consider implementing to sustain and grow their local medical device industry. These policy options, which focus on supporting promising early-stage companies as well as established firms through a favorable tax policy and business assistance programs, seek to create a more favorable business climate and increase regulatory predictability for medical technology providers.
