Abstract :

Innovations in healthcare have been focussed primarily on creation of new technologies, new application of existing technologies or improving the process of healthcare delivery. Most of innovations in medical technology do not focus on creation of new technologies, since it is viewed as a risky proposition. Since incubation period of R&D in healthcare is long, a well-planned approach is necessary to bring out a successful innovation. Technology and market understanding are key to any innovation but its carrying the innovation to healthcare delivery makes it a sensitive topic because it has people’s lives at stake. I will share my experiences with medical device innovations and the journey from market research to proof of concept to clinical trials/research to post marketing surveillance for creating a successful clinical product.
