Case Study: Innovating Inside the Box: Putting an Innovative Spin on Existing Technology

Jeremy Koehler (Director of R&D, Prescient Surgical)

Location: 210A

Date: Wednesday, February 6

Time: 4:00pm - 4:45pm

Track: MD&M West: New Technology & Next-Gen Design

Vault Recording: TBD

The healthcare industry is notoriously averse to change, and for good reason: Even small product tweaks can lead to big unintended consequences that impact provider workflows, patient outcomes, and system costs. In this session, attendees will learn how Prescient Surgical tackled one of healthcare’s most pressing problems, surgical site infections, with a truly novel device that was able to successfully navigate the provider adoption gauntlet. The company’s secret? Embracing a design philosophy of minimizing change to maximize receptivity.

Topics covered include:
  • Characterizing the current reality for providers and patients
  • Leveraging existing resources in the healthcare environment
  • Leveraging gaps in care with clinical evidence to define opportunities for improvement
