KCI Form - Idea Submission
KCI is honored that you would like to share your new idea with us. Product ideas can lead to improved patient care and quality of life, when the innovation is in the hands of the clinician.
In order for our evaluation team to be able to properly review your idea, it is imperative that you only share NON-confidential information at this time. Upon review, we will determine if your idea
- is a strategic fit for our company’s direction, and
- represents a concept that has not already been considered by KCI.
In the event KCI desires to further pursue your idea, KCI will contact you to obtain further information.
You may have proprietary rights in your new idea, and you should consider protecting it through patents, copyrights, or otherwise. You should consult your own lawyer, and take whatever steps are necessary to protect your idea BEFORE you submit your idea to KCI.
It is KCI’s policy that we not enter into a confidentiality arrangement with you as we have an active R&D program that is most likely creating ideas in the same area of invention as you.
