This year’s 5th WOMFORUM was attended by over 30 guests from the WOM referral network. The invited guest speaker was Prof. Dr. Martin Strik, Chief Physician of General, Visceral, and Oncological Surgery at the HELIOS Hospital Berlin-Buch. He talked about “Innovation Management in the HELIOS Clinic Chain – the Road to the Hospital 2025.”
Close collaboration with doctors and clinics is particularly important in the process of product innovations in medical technology. Creative ideas and further development of products have the greatest potential if they are initiated in close and direct exchange with the users from the clinic. The credo is: From the clinic – for the clinic!
WOM attaches great importance to working closely with doctors, clinics, and research facilities in the field of life sciences during the development process of product innovations. The exchange with doctors and surgical staff is of enormous importance as the best ideas come about when people work together and the user feedback can flow directly into the product.
