Don’t let the Medical Device Tax get
you down!

Yes, a 2.3% hit to your top-line revenue is no fun.

But instead of reacting by cutting costs, let’s see what an increase in Throughput would do to your bottom-line:

Throughput is simply Revenue minus Total Variable Costs (materials, outside services, commissions).

The examples below show how improving your company’s Throughput – assuming labor and overhead are relatively constant – can have a huge positive impact to your profitability.  Note also that the increase in Revenue is not necessarily an increase in “sales”, rather it is an increased in the amount of revenue your company is able to recognize due to increased shipments (Throughput) of an existing backlog:
