Medical Products

Creating tools to humanize health care

 

The field of health-care delivery is changing at breakneck speed. IDEO excels at addressing market shifts, such as integrating emerging technologies into delivery systems and other equipment and driving down costs by putting traditionally HCP-administered processes into the hands of patients. We help clients evaluate the competitive landscape and identify opportunities, assess risks through prototyping, and set up supply chains that support clinical trials and production.

Our stage-gate development process, from strategy and design to manufacturing and regulatory approval,  enables innovation in a complex industry. We consider everything from a product’s technical specifications to its underlying business model to ensure that our solutions meet the needs of all stakeholders. IDEO’s focus on outcomes ensures that our designs focus not only on molecules, but also on adherence, training, and adoption.
