Intermountain's employees and physicians often make discoveries, create inventions, develop software, or create other new "intellectual property." We help protect these inventions and establish agreements with partner companies. Licensing of inventions can lead to additional funding to support patient care and research at Intermountain. It may also generate royalties to be shared with inventors.
Our services include patent preparation, engineering design, prototyping, and finding commercial partners for an invention. Descriptions of these services are available at Invention Management Services. All of our services are provided at no cost to the inventor.
