Medical Device Development Resources
We often say it “takes a village” to bring new medical technology from an idea to the patient. Medical device development is a complex, multidisciplinary process that can be difficult to navigate and our ecosystem helps us do that. At GCMI, we combine internal capabilities in conceptualization, design, engineering and prototyping with an external “village” of experts who are passionate about helping medical device innovators and startups thrive. We spend a lot of time building relationships and developing this ecosystem to support our mission. We work with intellectual property experts, corporate attorneys, various types of engineers, materials experts, regulatory consultants, QMS advisors, reimbursement gurus, contract manufacturers, entrepreneurs-in-residence, investors, and industry. We want to save our startups and innovators time through anticipating their needs and connecting them at the right time.
GCMI is committed to assisting clients accelerate the commercialization of their new medical technology. We have relationships with innovative organizations to offer expertise and development capabilities for a wide range of medical device technologies, including:
- T3 Labs – GLP preclinical studies, testing, and training
- Greenlight.Guru – innovative online design control & QMS for startups
- Interoperability and Integration Innovation Lab (I3L) – health information technology (HIT) development
- Southeastern Medical Device Association (SEMDA) -– non-profit trade association promoting medical device companies in the Southeast
- Georgia Tech Manufacturing Extension Partnership (GaMEP) -– educating and supporting manufacturers in Georgia
- Atlantic Pediatric Device Consortium (APDC) – focused pediatric device development and commercialization
- Georgia Tech HomeLab – evaluation of emerging health and wellness technology products for the home
GCMI welcomes the opportunity to discuss other collaborative relationships to help bring new, innovative technology through medical device development, regulatory approval and market launch. Please contact us at for more information.
Interoperability and Integration Lab (I3L)
The I3L is being designed to move the health information technology (HIT) industry to the “future state” required to facilitate patient-centered, economically feasible, improved quality healthcare for the benefit of personal and public health. As a mainly virtual lab, it is an Internet Gateway to resources within other data centers on the internet collectively known as the Georgia Tech I3L Health Cloud. In addition to resources hosted at Georgia Tech, the I3L provides controlled access to applications hosted by other universities and private industry, as well as publicly available applications hosted by state and federal agencies.
The I3L will accelerate innovation by providing a suite of open source and commercial resources, significantly reducing cycle time and cost from idea to market of disruptive HIT. The I3L will provide conformance standards testing, interoperability evaluation, commercialization assistance and more. A critical priority is to create and sustain an evolving, “state-of-the market” educational products suite with which to train the emerging HIT workforce.
