With new research requirements, comprehensive documentation guidelines and demanding certification standards, a sword of Damocles now hangs over much of the industry. Not only do development and production processes have to be redesigned, but even existing products risk being banned unless completely new processes are implemented.
Companies urgently need experts and project managers who understand MDR requirements and are able to work at eye level with approval bodies. The only problem? – These experts are in short supply. For the companies affected, sweeping regulations can lead to critical deficits of skilled and specialised labour. To survive, they have to be able to precisely formulate job descriptions, identify qualified specialists and get them on board before the competition does. All in a day’s work for HealthCorp Partners.
The medical device industry is currently undergoing several kinds of changes. In particular, this includes regulatory changes, like the EU’s Medical Device Regulation (MDR), new combinations of high-performance equipment and individualised therapies, the development of open, platform-based systems and new services, the use of digital technologies and the integration of in-house developments in overall value creation chains.
These rapid and far-reaching changes are leading to new strategic imperatives and skills requirements, which the industry needs to handle effectively.
Dealing with the pressure of the current transformation in the medical device industry requires new processes, structures and technologies.
In turn, this requires new expertise, e.g. on the conceptual design and management of clinical studies, on data analysis or on assembling powerful sales teams. However not every Medtech company has the necessary depth of know-how available. So, in order to establish this expertise, new specialists and executives have to be brought in.
HealthCorp Partners knows the industry structures, trends and requirements in the medical device sector based on personal leadership experience. Our network includes top experts from different countries and all different roles. We match these experts with high-level positions and get them interested in working for our clients.
