Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


How can we improve patient care with new devices? How can we improve on existing devices or tools? A new perspective will be presented using a team approach to bringing innovative tools to market. As family physicians and educators, we all come across ideas to improve the efficiency, time and patient comfort during medical procedures. This presentation will feature cases from work done at the USC Alfred E. Mann Institute for Biomedical Technology in the research, development, and dissemination of primary tools to primary care physicians. We will demonstrate how teamwork among physicians, mechanical engineers, rapid prototype developers, attorneys and others can result in the evolution of new tools to clinicians in a cost-effective manner.
