The WMAHSN Industry Innovation Gateway, delivered by Medilink WM, acts as a single point of entry for all medical / health technology and life science businesses who wish to engage with the WMAHSN.
With comprehensive networks across the health and life science sector, the Industry Innovation Gateway provides essential connectivity to the business, clinical, academic, regulatory and finance communities, helping businesses to form new collaborative partnerships and to navigate the increasing complex health innovation landscape.
Meridian is WMAHSN’s interactive online innovation health exchange designed to support the West Midlands innovation ecosystem, assisting NHS, academic, commercial and industrial stakeholders, and supporting a collaborative approach to resolving clinical and service challenges to build a region-wide innovation culture.
If you have an innovative product or service available that has significant potential to benefit both patients and the health service Medilink WM will look to facilitate your need by assisting with your Meridian Innovation Submission and developing key relationship management with appropriate clinical groups and stakeholders with you, to assist the right innovations to evolve and move forward with the NHS.
Working closely with MidTECH the West Midlands NHS technology transfer office, the Industry Innovation Gateway helps to identify opportunities for collaboration with SMEs, supporting the commercialisation of NHS intellectual property, resulting in licensing and spin out opportunities for industry that will impact on wealth generation and employment, further contributing to the local economy.
