Digital transformation is especially important to medical device manufacturers because they must have good quality data, and especially tracking metrics, to track complaints and device performance to comply with regulatory requirements. And these requirements are just getting stricter.
Growing pressure on the manufacturing industry from rising prices, new regulations and supply chain uncertainty have accelerated medtech’s digital transformation. COVID-19, in particular, has encouraged medical manufacturers to adopt more resilient and agile working practices. New technology can enable process changes and business strategies that help medical manufacturers become more flexible and responsive to changing…
The industry struggles with various unknowns that impact efficiency, quality, and as a result, finances. This article reviews some of these challenges and how to overcome them.
Today’s health monitoring and management systems rely on wires and batteries, and often are not continuously connected to an alert and communication system for patients and doctors. Wireless power will empower medical device manufacturers to develop sophisticated, smart IoT systems that will improve patient care and patient lives.
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.
