About the Affiliation
The Channel Group, MedIQ Innovation experts and HCTC recognize that companies in the US and Europe require significant support in their desire to access markets in Europe and North America.

Many US healthcare companies choose Europe for initial commercialization (obtaining CE first) prior to US launch due to reduced time and costs to the market. Often they are lacking in critical pre- market intelligence to understand dynamics that might influence their clinical development plans and commercial strategy. These companies often require an experienced team to drive the process from clinical development to commercialization. MedIQ provides a single source of support with a successful track record of more than 10 successful product introductions. HCTC currently handles a large number of clinical trials and is frequently advising clinical researchers in terms of clinical trial feasibility, set-up, and management.

European companies seek to enter the world’s largest US healthcare market but often lack the ability to access the expertise and assets required to do so. They find it especially difficult due to associated costs and the significant range of expertise required. Often these companies seek local US partners to develop and manage their US business activities. The Channel Group provides operational management expertise, access to a wide range of support organizations and introduction to licensed capital resources to support market entry.
