One of the biggest problems in
innovation is accurately identifying needs. Can existing products on the market
satisfy the need, and if not, why? Does the Needs Statement concisely
articulate the purpose of the project? CMTi can help and guide clinician innovators
to refine their Needs Statements for more clarity.
There are several sources of grants
including both intramural and extramural ones, but not all may be suitable for
innovation-based projects. Whether it’s applying for a big medical grant,
internal funding or even collaborator-centric agreements, CMTi will guide you
through to ensure the highest probability of success.
Any good project requires some
amount of external support. Whether it’s a collaborator that works alongside
the clinician innovator or a vendor who provides key components, CMTi
facilitates partner and by working out the best arrangement for all parties.
Prototyping cannot be done in a
vacuum. In order to test out whether the beta product works, both preclinical
animal trials and clinical trials will need to be carried out. CMTi can connect
you to the right places to get the appropriate trials done, and assist you in
getting your DSRB approvals in time as much as possible.
Once your product has passed the
clinical trials phase, you’ll need to see if it is a good fit for the clinical
environment. CMTi is able to recommend where is best to put your product to the
test (i.e. in a particular NHG institution) with focus groups of patients and
medical personnel to for clinical test-bedding
The process of clinical innovation
from conceptualization to commercialization can be complex and daunting to
some. That is why you can rely on CMTi to help you in your innovation journey –
from finding you a suitable partner to exploring suitable funders and
eventually to commericialising
