Medical technology or “MedTech” includes healthcare products and services used to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease or otherwise improve peoples’ health and overall quality of life. MedTech innovations include in vitro diagnostic tests, 3D printing, diagnostic imaging technologies, minimally invasive surgery, implants, biorobotics, and wearable devices.
This industry is highly dynamic and innovative as evidenced by the large number of patents produced each year and the rapidly evolving regulatory landscape. The global MedTech market of over US$400 billion is currently concentrated in the US and Western Europe but there is increasing participation from Asia.
The MedTech value chain ranges from market research and R&D to manufacturing, distribution, and point of care. There are, therefore, many areas in which medical technology experts specialize, and these include among others:
Business expertise regarding e.g., MedTech market gap analysis, market access, product positioning, and other aspects of successful commercialization
Research and development of new MedTech products and services
- Clinical research where clinical studies are required to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of novel MedTech
- Regulatory affairs to ensure compliance with regulatory agencies, notified bodies, and safety requirements
- Quality assurance
- Sales and distribution
Medical technology specialists come from a variety of backgrounds with the necessary qualifications dependent on their roles. For example, those involved in R&D will likely have a degree in e.g., biomedical engineering or electrical engineering, or a Ph.D. in e.g., biology, chemistry, or physics. Medical technology consultants may have a life sciences or medical background with a postgraduate business degree.
Medical technology experts work either as freelance consultants or for medical device or healthcare companies, medical device or MedTech consulting firms, medical device or MedTech marketing companies, and regulatory agencies, among others. The job titles of medical technology experts vary greatly and can include MedTech Development Engineer, Regulatory Affairs Associate, and MedTech Consultant. There are also freelance MedTech writers who specialize as MedTech content writers, editors, copywriters, technical writers, whitepaper writers, and article writers.
To hire a freelance MedTech consultant, the fee generally ranges from 40−150 USD per hour depending on the required skillset and the level of experience necessary.
The hourly fee can be negotiated upfront based on the estimated number of project hours, or a flat fee (for projects of a defined scope) can be discussed. If you need short-term/temporary access to these specialists, then hiring a freelance medical technology consultant on our platform is a convenient and cost-effective way to harness their expertise.
The best way to attract the top Kolabtree freelancers in this field is to make your project description informative. You will need to provide information on the following:
- Skills required (e.g., expertise in MedTech commercialization)
- What the project area is (e.g., wearable technology)
- What the project entails (e.g., market evaluation for a new wearable sensor)
- What the deliverables are (be specific about what you need the outputs to be)
- Duration of the project (provide an estimate of how many hours work you will need per week/by when you need the project to be completed)
- By when you need to hire (having more leeway on this will give you more time to choose the best expert for your needs)
- Your budget (per hour or fixed fee)
If you are unsure what exactly is required, providing as much detail as possible will allow the experts to still make an informed bid for your project and suggest the best routes forward.
Our platform makes it easier than ever before to connect and collaborate with MedTech researchers and freelance MedTech consultants who can provide your project with the expertise you need.
