MedFuse 2018 has ended
While innovation in the medical space can be daunting or challenging, MedFuse will be a place where both seasoned experts and aspiring talent are welcome together. Not only are there many ways in which the medical field stands to benefit from new perspectives, but there are also many tangential fields to medicine that innovations present in other IoT solutions can serve with fewer barriers. Fields like home monitoring, health and wellness apps, or wearable devices. So if you or your company have ideas, are looking for ideas, or just want to be inspired, MedFuse is the place to come tap into a network of innovators, thinkers, but most importantly, doers. So whether or not you are a trained medical professional, MedFuse is right for you.

Product and service development in medical technology involves enormous investments and long lead times. In order to realize a substantial return on investment, development leaders need to identify "whitespace", or relatively un-exploited territory. They also need to identify such whitespace far in advance of commercialization. Systematic Design and Innovation amplifies and accelerates that process.

Systematic Innovation explores and combines multiple attributes for an ideal or un-discovered product or service configuration. The magic of Systematic Innovation is that it combines both art and science. The "science" is the generation of various combinations of attributes and identification of feasible or relevant configurations. The "art" is the identification of relevant attributes as the basis for combinations. Every solution space is unique. As a more robust approach, Systematic Innovation can integrate product/service attributes and customer attributes.

We will explore some examples of Systematic Innovation, and we will consider ways that Systematic Innovation can enhance and accelerate product and service development in medical technology.
