At Vanguard Medical Technologies, we are excited to be at the forefront of emerging medical technology. VMT is a physician founded, physician run technology firm focused on patient and physician benefit. Our mission is to: Apply early stage ideas and technology from laboratories and our own researchers to address critical healthcare needs and benefit patients and physicians. We do this while maintaining strict ethical standards of benefiting patients, reducing overall healthcare costs, and causing no harm to humans or animals.
The mission is achieved by bringing together an extremely talented team and giving them wide leeway in exploration. Within VMT, all employees have industry experience in healthcare, technology, and business and every executive has multiple advanced degress in at least two of these areas.
The need for bridging the increasing culture gap between physicians, engineers, and business people is increasing. As medical knowledge grows, doctors find themselves in academic or cultural silos. Medical specialists undergo five or more years of specialty training, studying curricula with little common ground. Add to this the wide difference in perspective and training between physicians and engineers and it becomes obvious why collaboration is often limited. Take the distrust between physicians and engineers and the entrepreneurs who bring ideas to the market and an often untenable environment is produced. A wide realm of potential technology and intervention awaits collaborative medical, technical, and entrepreneurial specialists willing to explore it.
Through careful financial analysis, we identify applications and markets which will ultimately support a viable and meaningful product. Then, by supporting physicians and engineers in controlling the earliest stages of technology research within these markets, we create a unique environment to produce the most ethical, innovative, and targeted technologies. After focused research and product development, we begin rigorous testing and further design evolution, always with the clear goal of benefiting patients and physicians while lowering overall healthcare costs. When products reach maturity in prototyping and testing, the researchers themselves often want to spin out to form a commercialization company. This approach is supported by VMT.
Vanguard Medical Technologies is not just another medical technology company. We are targeting a unique area of interventional medicine through a specific approach while maintaining high ethical standards. This is exciting new ground with extensive potential for medical and technological breakthroughs.
