Clinician Driven Innovation (CDI) Initiative

The Clinician Driven Innovation (CDI) Initiative, spearheaded by SPRING, aims to forge partnerships among clinicians, technology providers and academia locally and overseas for the development of effective, tested healthcare innovations that meet the real-world needs of patients and users.

By encouraging greater communication and collaboration between innovative technology companies and their end-user customers in the healthcare industry, CDI helps tech companies to better understand the needs of the end-users and develop more effective products that meet real-world needs.
