MedTech, along with Gov-tech and Edu-tech, are our core market verticals for one very big reason. We are located in a mecca of government, education, and health agencies and corporations. To highlight MedTech specifically, the region hosts a concentration of 57 accredited colleges and universities that provide specialized biotech programs. There exists a strong local biohealth sector focus and workforce.
Maryland is home to one of the largest life sciences clusters in the nation, with 500+ biotech firms, 2,700 life sciences companies, the NIH, the FDA, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Maryland Medical System as well as many national health associations who are headquartered here. With the high concentration of life sciences in this area, the number of start-ups and the culture for MedTech innovation is high.
It is significantly higher than other states and regions.
With the rush of firms into this space, less competent technology groups are entering the market and deploying less secure medical platforms that expose risk to large quantities of protected patient data. While we have more expertise in this area, the flood of others mishandling complex product development could increase pressure on government agencies (institutional regulators) to further protect data and increase security of medical devices in healthcare facilities.
Over-regulation could cause undue financial and compliance burden on technical start-ups entering the marketplace. As with any product built for good,there are also inherent risks to developing powerful software components that can be hacked and used for nefarious purposes. There are potential detrimental effects to consider when navigating software product development associated with clinical patient care if appropriate safeguards are not implemented correctly.
TechSlice offers a program that lowers the barrier of entry for tech startups, ensures high levels of security and compliance, and full go-to-market understanding. Your investment dollars go further, faster, and with better returns.
