WASHINGTON, D.C. – Scott Whitaker, president and CEO of the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed), today issued the following statement regarding the nomination of Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS):

“AdvaMed congratulates Rep. Price on being nominated as Secretary of HHS. As an orthopedic surgeon, he understands the important role medical technology plays in improving patient outcomes – allowing them to live longer, more productive lives – and in adding value to health care systems.

“Rep. Price has been a strong proponent for health care delivery policies that factor in the importance of patient access to medical technology.

“We look forward to Rep. Price’s confirmation as HHS Secretary early next year and to working with him, the new administration and the new Congress on ways to improve the U.S. health care system and advance medical innovation.”
