The Covid-19 pandemic fueled the slow-burning desires to build medical devices that can connect patients and providers. Going forward, new medical device technologies will need to demonstrate a well-conceived, fool-proof system that ensures medical care can’t be impeded by any future disruptions.
Now is the time for forward-thinking device firms to expand their offering and invest in services that support these groundbreaking new technologies.
Bill Betten of S3 Connected Health will lead a discussion about this next crucial next step for medtech. Panellists will talk through some industry examples of companies who have already seen the benefits of a shift in mindset to become both device and service providers.
In the end, medical device makers that incorporate connected technologies into their products will be able to help payers and providers to see value and efficacy in their products.
But the long-term success will come to those companies that build services around those devices to change how healthcare is delivered, and to improve patient and clinical outcomes.
