With the rapid transformation of digital healthcare and the technology evolution in robotics, networking, and automation, MedTech companies are under increasing pressure to deliver solutions that improve patient outcomes, lower costs, and increase clinical efficiency. This is causing a dramatic shift from standalone medical devices to next-generation solutions that integrate smarter devices and increasingly networked and disparate components, sensors, and applications. These systems must be capable of highly reliable, secure, and real-time data sharing to enable more advanced, automated, and efficient treatments. Device Manufacturers need to take a holistic approach to data flows and invest in software connectivity technologies that enable system evolution, accelerate development, and drive focus to where they want to innovate; thereby establishing an economical and flexible foundation for companies to compete and deliver transformational solutions.
