Format: Peer-reviewed article
Type: Case-based research
Experience level of reader: Fundamental
Annotation: The insight-value-perception model is presented to examine practices within eight medical device firms. This study investigates how doctors as end users effect new product adaptation and influence the companies that produce them.
Setting(s) to which the reported activities/findings are relevant: Community, Federal Lab, Government, Large business, Small business, University
Knowledge user(s) to whom the piece of literature may be relevant: Policy makers, Clinicians, Brokers, Manufacturers, Developers, Intermediaries, Users, Advocates, and Researchers.
Knowledge user level addressed by the literature: Individual, Organizations, Sectors
This article uses the Commercial Devices and Services version of the NtK Model
The market value of new medical technology varies based on need.
Occurrences within the model: KTA 6.A, NtK Tip 6.C, NtK 2.2, 4.3
- Coordination between product development teams and functional departments is linked to greater product success at market.
Occurrences within the model: NtK 7.4, 7.9, 7.10
- Physicians as end users can contribute meaningful information to manufacturers and regulators governing healthcare and drugs.
Occurrences within the model: NtK 3.1, 4.1, 7.13
- Increase relative product value for multiple stakeholders with conflicting needs while simultaneously minimizing the need for end users to change behaviors.
Occurrences within the model: NtK 2.1
- Use various product simulation conditions to optimize products for widespread use.
Occurrences within the model: NtK 5.3
- Users in user-centered design can be classified into sub-groups. Patients, healthcare personnel and caregivers are primary users where trainees, engineers, researchers, etc. are secondary users.
Occurrences within the model: NtK 3.1, 4.1, 4.6
