MedTech IoT start-ups and early-stage innovators often launch with a minimum viable product, or MVP, a version with just enough features and stability to be used in clinical or field-testing. With the right MVP, companies can prove technical feasibility and position themselves for success with investors. Here is how to get there.
Connectivity in medical devices creates new diagnostic and treatment opportunities, yet at the same time increases the risks of cyberattacks—including their consequences for patient safety and data privacy. Now the new IEC 81001-5-1 standard provides clear technical requirements for manufacturers and developers to ensure the cybersecurity of their products across their life cycle.
Connected sensors are a key component to improving patient access to and patient retention in clinical trials. Following are considerations for developers and sponsors when designing and selecting sensors for use in trials.
MedTech Intelligence will host four vertical in-person events in 2023 covering connected care, regulatory compliance, advanced manufacturing and supply chain. The Washington, DC-based conferences bring together MedTech professionals for education, networking and discussion on the key challenges and opportunities facing the MedTech industry.
Advances in medical devices and technology have had a profound effect on those with mild, moderate and severe hearing loss. Here, we take a closer look at how these technologies have evolved and what the future may hold.
There are several challenges and opportunities on the road to a truly connected, hospital to home healthcare system. Stuart Long, CEO of InfoBionics, discusses new innovations as well as what’s needed to move connected care and remote patient monitoring to the next level of adoption.
Microbatteries are on the cusp of a new era as solid-state lithium technology arrives to pack more energy into smaller form factors. These batteries will enable the products they power to be offered in smaller sizes and more comfortable shapes, with enormous implications for future medtech product designs and capabilities, from the convergence of hearables and OTC hearing aids to wearable devices that are used for remote health monitoring and fitness tracking.
We’ve all dabbled with apps that affect various parts of our health and wellness, but never in a holistic way. This is an opportunity for the tech sector to help patients drive better health outcomes and reduce overall healthcare costs by showing them how to embark on a path of wellness. It’s just a matter of pulling it together into the right user experience.
Anthony Fernando, CEO and president of Asensus Surgical, discusses the potential benefits of augmented intelligence in robotic surgery for both patients and physicians.
The blueprint includes opportunities for various healthcare stakeholders to contribute to the full optimization of digitally enabled care and includes case examples featuring organizations with care models that leverage the blueprint’s six pillars.
