There are many sectors which provide good revenue stream and volume such as Orthopedic, Surgical appliances and supplies, prosthetic, x ray apparatus, dental equipment and supplies, physical therapy and rehabilitation equipment, irradiation apparatus, ophthalmic equipment, electro medical, electro therapy, etc. which are used by health care industry every now and then. Selling these products online is also a good option as many of these retail products people buy with online shopping.
Within these sectors there are several sub sectors which can add considerable profit to your manufacturing such as surgical and medical instrument manufacturing, dental equipment and supplies manufacturing, electro medical and electrotherapeutic manufacturing, surgical appliances and supplies manufacturing, etc. It is to be remembered that many developed and European Union countries have strict regulations pertaining to medical supplies business and necessary regulations and standards need to be met for export of these health products.
BUSINESS POTENTIAL: -It is to be remembered that these sectors have sub sectors which again provide good source of revenue. A business man may concentrate on a single sector or multiple sectors. It is good to remember that each of the above sectors mentioned has huge catalogue of medical supplies which have a robust business opportunity and also the scope to sell over internet with online retail shopping is tremendious. In many developed countries and European region health medical diagnostic and treatment is highly monitored which makes the procurers to have high quality medical supplies and health products. Most of these medical supplies are fast moving products because they cannot be reused according to medical regulations of certain countries. Often business turnover for this sector is in billions of dollars.
1) Many established companies such as GE recognized the potential for this business and invested heavily in R&D, personnel (human resources) training and manufacturing. There are many other established listed companies such as Siemens (Germany), Hitachi and Toshiba, Philips, Marconi, etc which provide software and hardware.
2) Indirect business opportunity could be in developing critical software which should be cost affective and highly reliable.
3) SERVICE: - Bio medical engineers can use their skills for designing and servicing equipment. Service sector offers huge revenue stream with low capital cost. Lack of talent is very much profound in this sector due to lack of qualified bio medical engineers and certified bio medical engineers who can service these equipment according to standards and regulations. Often a supplier (manufacturer or distributor) needs to provide onsite service for these machines. Remember these machines provide life support and other critical emergency backups and a qualified engineer can only service these highly sensitive health or medical machines. These machines are highly sensitive and needs careful handling and very precise alignment. Also some of these machines have possible radiation hazards such as irradiation apparatus, electro medical and electro therapy machines, etc. Servicing or troubleshooting these machines should be in precise accord to rules and regulations as stipulated by various government departments. Often safety of the technician is left to the manufacturer or service provider. Nevertheless it is always good to have a clear set of rules and regulations charted out before supplying medical supplies as they are now a days also sold with online retail shopping.
4) This sector demands qualified legal exerts in framing the rules and regulations, terms and conditions between the buyer and supplier. Contracts are issued for a certain period of time which is to be renewed periodically according to the time frame.
5) Outsourcing is an important industry parameter as it reduces the cost of specified unit and these outsourced industries should comply with food and drug administration and othhealth er departments failing which their license to export goods and services will be terminated.
6) Electronic storage of patients data
7) Venture capitalists can back good companies with healthy product portfolio and innovations.
