The future for many medical devices is moving outside of the hospital.
Patients are being given power to deliver life-saving treatments beyond traditional clinical settings, so medical devices increasingly need to function safely and securely at home and in daily life.
The “hospital-at-home” trend began with simple devices to take treatment out of hospitals, but now includes everything from dialysis to EEG monitoring. It brings new opportunities for innovative medical device makers who can rise to the challenge and create intuitive interfaces, secure connections, and protect against outside threats.
In this discussion, medical device professionals with decades of experience in connected health will share their best practices for meeting this rising demand. They will cover:
- Solutions required for medical devices to deliver treatment outside a clinical setting.
- Key steps device makers must take when developing new devices and their accompanying digital solutions.
- Novel features common to ‘hospital-at-home’ solutions.
- Overlooked challenges facing medical device vendors designing these products.
