Being able to understand and interpret the current medical device regulations, marketing requirements and healthcare direction requires an in-depth awareness of how to apply the best options to maximize opportunity in each specific market.
In the continually evolving medical device landscape, the product portfolio of a distributor or company is increasingly more important. A medical device product evolution from inception, through research, funding, company organization, regulatory approval, congress promotion, distribution discussions, agreement legal discussions, pricing, training, inventory, and market launch is a long process which requires the expertise of a knowledgeable team in order to source, select and finalize product selection over years.
As the center of a company's operations, their sales network whether as a direct sales force or through National or International distributors requires careful analysis with thorough knowledge of the specific market potential, opportunity and regulation restrictions.
Marketing support may include exhibition and/or attendance at major International medical congresses.
With the Sales pipeline in place, the logistics and manufacturing divisions must be revised in order to maximize efficiency, delivery time and cost. Our assistance includes logistics selection, management and alternate manufacturing site evaluation as well as o.e.m. (outsourcing) synergies.
Mergers in the medical device industry have generated an unprecedented amount of activity, resulting in hundreds of billions of dollars in transactions. In order to maximize potential it is imperative to have the expertise of a group such as ours to seek potential partners, set goals for M&A options, maneuver the negotiation process with financial and legal support, follow through in the transition process and opportunities for spin-off companies.
Alternately, we have access to U.S. and Asian venture capital groups to pitch company investments at various stages for growth.
Regulatory compliance requirements extend throughout the full product life cycle from development through approval, manufacturing, launch, and required post market reporting. These vary among countries with the two major entities of the EC and FDA updating regularly. It is important to have a knowledgeable organization to follow the latest rulings for new product registrations and to maintain approvals.
Patent application assistance is also available for the Worldwide and U.S. patent approval processes.
Today any medical device company faces ongoing risks to finances, products, data, equipment, property, and personnel.
This includes IT system reliability analysis for heavy amounts of user traffic, maintaining security standards and adapt to new technologies.
Organizations that are successful are those that can adapt to change. In today’s increasingly regulated environment, medical device companies must proactively evaluate if their division processes are evolving with industry demands.
Across the medical device industry, maintaining compliance is never a fixed parameter. There is always more to learn, understand, and put into practice for each individual department and country in which a company operates. For this purpose, standardized training resources are an asset for small to mid-sized companies to keep their training up to date.
Our support may also include organizing clinical cases in each country with local opinion leaders for further product development and clinical publications.
