MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY / SOFTWARE LAWYER
Achieving advances in medical technology cannot be accomplished by innovation alone, but requires the support of capable professionals who understand the process of taking the initial concept/business and transforming it into a financially-successful advancement in medical technology that has extensive application. Medical technology is only capable of achieving its true purpose if it can expand its reach to a global level and operate as a profitable enterprise.
New business enterprises play a significant role on the research and development front, conceiving new and improved medical technology and devices, with larger businesses providing the organizational and capital assets that facilitate extensive application. Understanding how new enterprises can progress to the next stage is of critical importance. Frequently, this takes the form of finding the correct synergies with other medical technology operations or financial institutions to achieve such goals.
Due to intensive competition and innovation that characterizes medical technology, many products do have relatively short life cycles. For this reason, among others, it is important to have knowledgeable legal professionals guiding your business development.
Medical Software – computer programming directed at improving the medical process by facilitating greater efficiencies and increased accuracy.
Diagnostic Tools – technology used to detect medical conditions and their level of severity in patients. In vitro diagnostics (generally, laboratory tests or pathology tests) are extremely sensitive and highly specific, providing concise information about the presence and/or concentration of analytes in a specimen (ranging from complex equipment in hospital laboratories to self-administered testing or point-of-care testing).
Medical Devices – an instrument, apparatus, or other device used in (i) the diagnosis, treatment, mitigation or prevention of a disease, disorder or abnormal physical state or its symptoms or (ii) the correction of a body function or structure.
Prosthesis Technologies – surgically implanted devices that replace a damaged body part and the technology associated with its operation, from hip and knee replacements to cardiac stents and pacemakers.
Bioinformatics – the use of computers in the analysis of biochemical and other biological information, including molecular genetics and genomics.
