Hospital at Home models are expanding capacity for overcrowded hospitals and emergency departments and providing comfort to a growing range of patients. Dave Kerwar, co-founder of Inbound Health, discusses the best candidates for hospital at home care and opportunities for MedTech providers to enhance this model of care, as payers and CMS look at long-term adoption.
An adhesive developer explains why skin is so challenging to adhere to, why it’s never too early to explore skin-adhesive options for your wearable device, and recent milestones in stick-to-skin adhesive longevity.
“The solution provider that builds the device and creates the algorithm should consider integration and accountability among multiple other challenges. But meeting the needs of the third element in the equation, the doctors, is key.”
Rama Chellappa, PhD, John Hopkins University Bloomberg Distinguished Professor in electrical, computer, and biomedical engineering, and co-author of “Can We Trust AI?” looks at the promise of AI in health care and how we can best utilize this extraordinary tool to save lives and improve health equity.
The Intricon Biosensor CoE team has expertise in high-density microelectronics, miniaturization, ultra-low power, miniature molding, firmware development, and wireless communication.
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.
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.
Next-generation, predictive analytic patient monitoring lowers healthcare costs, improves clinical outcomes and enhances the patient experience in hospital-at-home, post-acute care and chronic care management.
John Mastrototaro, Ph.D., biomedical engineer and CEO of Movano discusses strategies to improve data accuracy, the convergence of consumer wearables and medical remote monitoring devices and what healthcare providers are seeking in remote data delivery.
The findings suggest that manufacturers need to make user interface and user experience design improvements to certain wearable medical devices.
