Sagentia Leads Discussion On Translating Innovative Ideas Into Successful Products At Frost & Sullivan's 18th Annual Medical Devices MindXchange
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
Inc., a global technology and product development company, is leading an
interactive workshop for senior medical device experts on "untangling
the intangible: translating innovative ideas into successful products"
at the 18th
Annual Frost & Sullivan Medical Devices Executive MindXChange on
March 11, in San Diego. The session is part of a larger program that
Sagentia is running to raise awareness and drive discussion around the
new paradigm shift taking place in the healthcare industry and the
implications this has on product and service innovation.
Sagentia's workshop, run by Dr. Gillian Davies, PhD, Surgical & Health
Technology, will evaluate how the economic climate and the Affordable
Care Act are leading Medtech and Pharma organizations to evaluate
completely new sets of opportunities, often in unfamiliar areas, and
require a very different approach to innovation. In her interactive
session, Dr. Davies will provide some tools and techniques to help
systematically deliver on the innovation mandate and seek group
discussion on how to identify and avoid the most common pitfalls
associated with translating innovative ideas into successful products.
"As healthcare provision increasingly focuses on outcomes and cost
reduction, the drive for disruptive innovation is growing," said Dr.
Davies. "Adapting to these market shifts will be critical to the
continued success of businesses operating in the medical space, but
getting it right may require a different approach to R&D if companies
are to provide the new paradigm of solution-based products in the
emerging connected healthcare system."
This three-day event will also see Dr. Andrew Jackson, PhD, Vice
President of Patient Care at Sagentia, leading a roundtable discussion
on "Connected Health: what's in it for my business " This open
roundtable will focus on topics such as remote sensing, home use
devices, smartphone applications and complex data analysis and will try
to define how real and tangible these opportunities are for the industry.
Sagentia's focus on these topics is based on 27 years of work on medical
device projects that span from market needs identification and
technology scouting through to technology innovation, product
development and transfer to manufacture. For further information on
