Innovation is crucial to the future of health care - especially with trends such as personal medicine and retail and consumer-driven healthcare driving fundamental changes in the value chain. Unfortunately, many of today's budding innovations never make it to market. Instead, they're sidetracked by the pressures of patient care and practice management or sabotaged by legal, financial and marketing issues. Now, more of these good ideas can succeed thanks to this powerhouse new book, written expressly for physicians and healthcare professionals. This book explains how to nurture that entrepreneurial spirit and apply proven business principles to fast-track new ideas into valuable real-world devices and other medical breakthroughs. Clearing the obstacles to innovation, this unique book is an investment that will repay ""physician-entrepreneurs"" many, many times over with guidance for researching the competitive landscape, protecting intellectual property, developing the right business and marketing plans, getting funding and going to market.
