This unique guidebook addresses a common gap in tech transfer organizations: many physicians and healthcare workers have valuable ideas for improving patient care, but the majority of these innovative ideas for new technologies never make it to market. Instead, many are sidetracked by the pressures of patient care and practice management or sabotaged by legal, financial and marketing complexities that are part of the innovation process. Now with the all-new book Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the Healthcare Sector, you’ll have proven strategies and real-world guidance for turning these new ideas into real-world products, patents, and profits.
Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the Healthcare Sector combines clinical skills and business savvy with step-by-step guidance for moving beyond the generation of an idea to the creation of a business plan, the development of a proposal, and testing and evaluating a product. You’ll also find critical strategies and techniques for developing and protecting your valuable intellectual property.
This 462-page book provides a clear road map for nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit among clinical innovators and applying proven business principles to fast-track new ideas into the marketplace.
