Barry T. Katzen, M.D., founder and medical director of Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, led the launch of Innovation Institute Miami in 2017 as a resource for the entrepreneurial spirit and intellectual talent at Baptist Health. Innovation Institute Miami develops and commercializes intellectual assets for products, devices, tech apps, therapies and delivery models to promote human health globally. Led by Corporate Vice President for Innovation Mark Coticchia, Innovation Institute Miami has four “innovation pillars” it employs toward its mission:
Innovation Institute Miami offers access to unique resources and tools for system innovators. These tools include product designers, 3D printing technologies and other “ingredients” to foster design thinking and rapid prototyping. They allow inventors to submit ideas for healthcare advancements, including implantable and non-implantable medical devices, technology development, applications linked to devices and other process improvements with a focus on solving unmet needs in the patient experience.
The Institute has formed strategic alliances with industry partners and others to carry out the vision. If you would like more information about how you can participate, contact us. If you have an idea, submit it. There is no cost or risk, and there could be significant upside if your idea has merit.
