Device Implementation Sets the Stage for Successful Adoption
For clinicians, the use of new devices can represent significant solutions for their patients. However, if there’s a lack of education on the provider benefit or subpar training, a new vendor/provider relationship may fall flat before the device is able to see consistent use. Many times, one of the first interactions with a device company’s clinical team is during a product evaluation. Consequently, medical device manufacturers should develop an exceptional and methodically mapped out implementation program. Although these programs should aim to establish adaptable processes, they must a...
