Capstone Project:

There are barriers to implementing new health care innovation into hospitals.

The aim of this project is to identify the barriers to collaborative academic-industry partnerships in the health technology sector, as well as identify common goals between these two stakeholders to determine if collaborative partnerships can be improved. Depending on our findings, this project will also determine whether a viable business opportunity exists to improve collaboration between industry and academic stakeholders in the health technology sector.
