The cornerstone of Henry Ford Innovations is its Technology Management Office established to commercialize biomedical and healthcare inventions generated by HFHS physicians, researchers, and employees. The Office solicits, formulates, and evaluates innovation opportunities that can be developed into products suitable for licensing or establishing spinoff companies.
The Technology Management Office supports all System inventors. It is staffed by experienced biomedical commercialization professionals who collaborate with HFHS inventors to assess and protect potentially valuable intellectual assets. The professionals meld contemporary evaluation and intellectual property structuring methodologies with institutional and individual networks to market commercial opportunities.
