Understanding Medical Device Development
The healthcare industry is a hot bed of innovation. A convergence of new technologies, connectivity, big data and analytic models are creating a multitude of opportunities to improve health outcomes and reinvent platforms for device and service businesses. Working in a regulated industry requires special considerations that can prove challenging for the uninitiated.
From concept generation to launch, this session, led by Aidan Petrie, Chief Innovation Officer of Ximedica, will provide an overview of six essential components of successful product development specific to the development of medical devices and healthcare products. We will start with a discussion around the regulatory considerations that drive many of the activities surrounding each of the development phases and then cover step-by-step each phase of development including an overview of funding milestones and potential sources. Part how-to, part know-how the aim of this short workshop is to equip anyone who is currently trying to bring a product to market or may do in the future with a high level view from experts in the field.
Ximedica is the largest product developer the country that is focused solely on the medical space. Our clients range from Fortune 30, VC’s, university incubators and everything in between.
