How to Overcome Common Obstacles in Turnkey Product Development for Healthcare Professionals
June 25, 2024

Are you a healthcare professional looking to change the world? Whether you’re a nurse, doctor, or even a veterinarian, your innovative ideas and dedication to improving patient care can drive significant advancements in medical products and technology. However, bringing these ideas to market can be challenging. Turnkey product development offers a streamlined solution to help you navigate this complex journey efficiently and effectively.

What is Turnkey Product Development?

Turnkey product development involves using a single supplier or manufacturer who provides an end-to-end service for developing a product. This approach eliminates the need to hire separate suppliers for tasks such as prototyping and packaging, allowing you to simplify and streamline the entire production process by consolidating all stages of product development under one expert contract manufacturer.

What Are the Common Obstacles in Turnkey Product Development?

Turnkey product development can be a great solution for getting your innovative medical product to market and it’s vital to understand the common obstacles your trusted contract manufacturer can alleviate from your hands.

Unexpected Obstacles in Developing Healthcare Products

When developing a product for the healthcare industry, there are unique obstacles that healthcare professionals might not initially consider. Regulatory compliance is a significant hurdle, as medical products must meet stringent FDA or equivalent standards before they can be marketed. Intellectual property protection is another critical aspect, ensuring your innovation is safeguarded from competitors. Additionally, user training and adoption can be complex, as new products often require healthcare providers to learn and integrate new protocols into their practice. Finally, ensuring the product’s compatibility with existing medical systems and technology is crucial for seamless integration into the healthcare environment.

Complex Project Management

Turnkey projects can involve multiple stages, from engineering drawings to prototyping, to manufacturing and packaging. Managing these stages by yourself simultaneously can become complex and time-consuming, which is where your turnkey product development supplier comes in. They will be able to take care of every step of the journey, without you needing to outsource each stage individually. Aspects such as communication and consultation with your contracted manufacturer are important, to ensure that you have confidence that your product will be able to make it through the development process with ease.

Development Obstacles

The development stage is where most healthcare professionals encounter product development obstacles. Ensuring quality control, legislation and managing costs are vital to creating a product aligned with the scope and consultation stage of the turnkey product development journey. Your contract manufacturer should work with trusted suppliers that they have visited and audited themselves to ensure the product development process meets expectations.

Risk Management

Things don’t always go to plan in product development, and projects can be susceptible to various risks such as technical failures or regulatory compliance issues. A good contract manufacturer should plan ahead and think outside the box when it comes to potential problems. By conducting risk assessments early and regularly reviewing the product during development, later-stage issues can be identified early, helping to avoid problems at launch.

Supplier Coordination

Turnkey product development involves not only creating the best product but also ensuring it reaches customers’ shelves worldwide. Obstacles may arise in managing suppliers, ensuring timely component delivery, and overcoming shipping issues. Strong relationships with suppliers help mitigate supply chain problems, although geopolitical factors may pose difficulties. To manage risks, turnkey manufacturers employ early planning, diverse sourcing, and logistics expertise. Clear communication and proactive risk management are crucial in navigating international shipping and customs complexities. This ensures a smooth product launch, delivering value to your practice and patients alike.
