The RMC Innovation Laboratory is a unique center of creativity, focusing on providing technological solutions across a vast array of unmet clinical needs within the hospital setting. The lab primarily facilitates the first steps of medical entrepreneurship, supporting medical personnel of all disciplines. In addition, we collaborate with external organizations, guiding them through all phases of clinical needs-finding, research, brainstorming and clinical testing.
At the core of the Innovation Lab lays the understanding that in order to provide an impactful solution one must first identify and characterize the unmet clinical need. We believe that medical personnel, who come into contact with gaps in patient care on a daily basis, are the ones most suitable to make the first identification of the unmet need. Once the initial need is identified, we work with the entrepreneurs in promoting an applied solution to the problem, based on the method of “design thinking”.
As a key player in the large innovation initiative of the Clalit Healthcare System, the largest HMO in Israel, and working closely with both the Clalit Research Institute and Mor Research Applications, we are able to connect entrepreneurs who have identified unmet needs to the ever growing and vibrant community of engineers, designers and business capabilities.
Our vision is to assist medical personnel in cultivating their ideas and creating a working environment where identified unmet needs can develop further into products and companies, benefiting the patient population and health care professionals. The unique combination of its management, partnerships and collaborations with companies from industry and academia, we wish to provide the entrepreneur with the right setting to test and execute ideas.
We see you, the entrepreneur, as the key to success and we are here for you to make it happen.
