Erstwhile Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services chief Dr. Donald Berwick tells MassDevice.com that, despite a clutch of headline-grabbing recalls, medical device makers are doing good work for patients.

Public health pioneer and onetime Centers for Medicare & Medicaid chief Dr. Donald Berwick gave some props to the medical device industry ahead of a presentation at Harvard Medical School this week.

Despite a recent stream of  high-profile recalls and the ever-present clamor among consumer groups calling for more stringent regulatory oversight, Berwick said he remains a fan of the industry.
