MEDRC projects have the advantage of insight from the technology, medical, and the business arenas, significantly increasing the chances that a device will fulfill a healthcare need as well as be profitable for companies supplying the solutions.

With a new trend toward increased healthcare quality, disease prevention, and cost-effectiveness, such a comprehensive enterprise is crucial and a doorway to improved healthcare practices nationwide.
