MedTech Innovations and IP management for SMEs


MedTech, or medical technology, is every product, service, or solution using medical technology to improve people's health by preventing, diagnosing, monitoring, and treating disease. Medical devices ( any instrument, apparatus, implement, machine, appliance, implant, reagent for in vitro use, software, material or other similar or related article, ) are essential & integral part of MedTech domain.


MedTech domain (including Medical devices), particularly in India, has seen noteworthy changes and growth in recent years and it is expected to continue. The Small & Medium Enterprises (SME Units), which are a kind of backbone of Indian economy, will have to play a major role in this. There are challenges of market competition, access to finance, technology, regulatory provisions, scaling up and others. There are opportunities also. The challenges can be converted in to opportunities. The sure shot is considered to be Innovation. The key is to Continue innovations in technology, products, product design, packaging, market strategies and an overall management style.


The innovations can be small but relevant which adds value and increases market share. Such innovations generate Intellectual Property (IP). And these innovations (the IP) have to be protected under Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) like Patents, Design registration, Trademarks, Copyright, etc. The innovations protected under IPR will provide SMES a strong leverage to capitalise the opportunities in the MedTech domain.


The presentation will focus on Smart three pronged approach of Innovations & IP Management. These are: Firstly creating an Intellectual Property (IP) by smart Innovation, Secondly protecting this Innovations (IP) under IPR and Thirdly the increased market through IPR protected innovations.
