Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the Healthcare Sector: From Idea to Funding to Launch By Luis Pareras, MD, PhD, MBA

"Over the past 10 years, my academic colleagues and I have successfully started two medical device companies from self-generated device and methodspatents. In retrospect, I can tell you that this book would have saved us a lot of time, money and grief!" Manuscript Reviewer

For healthcare professionals, it is important to understand the difference between a good idea and a business opportunity. Innovation is crucial to the future of health care - especially with trends such as personal medicine and retail and consumer-driven healthcare driving fundamental changes in the value chain. Unfortunately, many of today's budding innovations never make it to market. Instead, they're sidetracked by the pressures of patient care and practice management or sabotaged by legal, financial and marketing issues. Now, more of these good ideas can succeed thanks to powerhouse new book, written expressly for physicians and healthcare professionals, by Luis Pareras, MD, PhD, MBA.
