In this webinar, we will discuss the industry trends and dynamics around digital health & technologies (Connected devices, SaMD, AI, RWE) in the medtech industry, discuss market influences and imperative to change and the nuances of the challenges in integrating device insights with health information systems.
Accelerating Innovation at the Intersection of Medtech and Health Care
Medtech is at the tipping point of digital innovation. 90% of medtech executives are prioritizing digital adoption. Many devices and medtech products are accompanied by companion apps but app abandonment is a real problem for the industry. On the whole there are over 350,000 digital health apps today, of which 83% were installed fewer than 5,000 times. Companion apps are often not compelling to patients because they work in isolation from the patient’s EHR, care team.
Yet, the promise of digital health, RWE generation, connected devices, and SaMD’s, presents a new frontier that can fundamentally change the way medtech companies interact with their health care customers, patients and consumers to improve care outcomes and experiences for each user in the value chain. Efforts to connect devices to care workflows, surface insights at the point of care and integrate them into the patient’s clinical record are being made in order to deliver on these promises.
However, the challenges of ingesting the correct clinical data, difficulties in integrating device insights into the clinical workflow, and scaling these integrations despite the lack of interoperability of health information systems creates an extremely expensive and high barrier to leveraging the full potential of digital innovation in the health care context.
In this webinar, we will discuss the industry trends and dynamics around digital technologies, discuss market influences and imperative to change and the nuances of these challenges in integrating device insights with health information systems. Specifically, we will cover:
- What are the trends in the industry around digital technologies, the driving forces and imperatives that necessitate these? What have been some examples of success and some of the biggest challenges faced by the industry so far?
- Why does integrating insights from digital devices into care work streams matter and what is the value lost by not doing it?
- What are the challenges faced when attempting to integrate insights from digital devices into care work streams?
- Challenges of equity, what are the impacts as you try to cross the digital divide, will this exacerbate differences for disadvantaged people. Technology is often seen as actually bridging the gap between populations, how does this play out in medtech?
- How to begin this journey and overcome the challenges of implementing connected digital health solutions.
- What are the challenges providers face when implementing such solutions and what’re the best ways to approach these conversations with your customers?
Our live webinar will be recorded. If you are unable to attend, please register and we will follow-up with a recording of the program.
