Korea University Anam Hospital

 

Expected to Become a Key Leader

 

in the Medical Devices Industry

 

 

 

 

 

Medical Platform Innovation Center signs an agreement with numerous domestic companies

 

Will expand the distribution network and strengthen clinical trial stability

 

 

Korea University Anam Hospital Medical Platform Innovation Center (Director

 

Seung-Zoo Yoon) has recently attracted great attention in the medical industry

 

for its unparalleled footstep, previewing its role as a key leader in the industry.

 

 

The center signed an MOU with 10 Korean medical device distributors and a

 

CRO. This was done as a part of the “establishment of medical device

 

convergence industry ecosystem” of the center to expand the distribution

 

network of medical devices and strengthen the stability of clinical trials.

 

 

The MOU is based on the cooperation to specify markets in order to establish a

 

medical device industry ecosystem for improving treatments by promoting the

 

introduction of novel medical technologies based on the expansion of

 

distribution networks. Through the support for medical researchers’ product

 

development and release, the center will push ahead with detailed plans of

 

easing regulations for signing clinical trial and distribution with the researchers.

 

 

The center is expected to gain a great driving force of development and

 

commercialization of products through this grand scale agreement. “We would

 

be able to establish a new support system for researchers in the medical field

 

through strengthened stability of clinical trial and expanded distribution

 

network,” said Director Yoon. “I hope the center will become a stepping stone

 

for tearing down a wall between hospitals and companies and for co-

 

development so that the domestic medical devices can survive in global

 

markets.”

 

 

Meanwhile, the center was started as a “Medical Device Innovation Project

 

Unit” and provided support for research’s initial establishment between

 

hospitals and companies and served as an intermediary to prevent conflicts. As a

 

result, the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy’s study was successfully

 

carried out, and it was re-established as an official organization of Korea

 

University Anam Hospital in September 2019, taking a leap as a key leader in

 

the medical devices industry.
