It’s important to draw on experience from other sectors.
A look at the factors contributing to the slow adoption rate of these devices in the OR, along with how the industry can increase adoption.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed hospital processes and made people more aware of the need to thoroughly sterilize medical instruments between patients. This article discusses some of the changes that may occur due to lessons learned throughout the global health emergency.
As more medtech companies take advantage of the game-changing technology to innovate and advance products, they must anticipate the need to obtain trustworthy, evidence-based comprehensive data—and be prepared to do their own due diligence to verify the chain of evidence and meet increasingly stringent regulatory requirements.
Automation handling with integrated controls can assist with laser marking for all shapes, sizes and materials used in the manufacture of medical devices. This approach can offer flexibility, along with the ultimate precision necessary, to support the UDI system, which provides a clear framework that defines the form in which information should be encoded on the device in accordance with its classification.
Greater use of next generation sequencing can better prepare the world for future diseases and accelerate the adoption of precision care.
As organizations continue to use technology to enhance the way they provide care, changes must be made to ensure the interoperability of the technology, patient data and continuity between providers.
Automating validation processes gives manufacturers the flexibility and capability to make changes, updates and re-validation, making it easier to upgrade or add new MES modules to their process. Simplifying the process through automation leads to faster ROI and time to market.
Adding wireless connectivity to medical devices brings convenience to patients, and can facilitate more effective healthcare delivery and lower healthcare costs. Its success depends on the ability of manufacturers to produce reliable, connected products that do not fail prematurely in the field.
Digital twins have the capability to enable safer medical devices and improve overall patient outcomes.
