Atlanta, Ga. (January 25, 2016) – Clinicians at Piedmont Healthcare are teaming up with the Global Center for Medical Innovation (GCMI), a not-for-profit, comprehensive medtech development organization based in Atlanta, to change the way healthcare is delivered by advancing medical technology.
The partnership allows physicians, nurses and technicians with an interest in technological innovation and entrepreneurship to bring new, potentially life-saving ideas to life through the Piedmont Innovation Center. GCMI will work with clinicians at Piedmont to facilitate education, design, engineering and prototyping, as well as general medical device commercialization.
“Through the Piedmont Innovation Center, our clinicians can conceptualize new devices and solutions that have the potential to transform medicine here in Atlanta and all over the world once they’ve come to fruition,” said Dr. Charles Brown, III, chief medical officer of the physician enterprise, Piedmont Healthcare. “With the resources and support services available, clinicians will have all the tools they need to bring their idea from concept to market.”
An affiliate of the Georgia Institute of Technology, GCMI brings an in-house team of medical device engineers and broad ecosystem of industry experts in intellectual property, regulatory affairs, reimbursement, quality systems and more to the partnership with Piedmont.
“Our center is the first and only one of its kind in the Southeast and we’re proud to partner with Piedmont to advance medical technology,” said Tiffany Wilson, executive director of GCMI. “We look forward to helping their clinicians develop products and bring these innovative devices that will improve patient care to market.”
