In today’s digital era, healthcare device manufacturers rely on advanced digital technologies to enhance efficiency.

FREMONT, CA: In a continually changing world where virtual and physical environments are converging, emerging digital technologies continue to transform the health device manufacturing industry. Besides, an uncertain environment resulting from the ongoing pandemic has forced healthcare device manufacturers to embrace advanced technologies and tap into growing healthcare device markets. The digitization of manufacturing is one of the core adjustments for healthcare manufacturers and OEMs to offer better patient care and remain competitive in the healthcare device markets. Here are some of the major technologies reshaping the industry.

Adopting Mixed Reality for Digital Engineering

As healthcare devices continue to miniaturize in size and weight, MR technologies have risen to move the needle for medical devices. AR/VR headsets empower medical device developers to navigate product designs, and features in an immersive augmented or virtual environment. This is where users can communicate with computer-generated 3D models to develop improved healthcare products.

RPA to Drive Greater Efficiencies 

Modern medical device manufacturers are facing financial pressures along with several product development and commercialization hurdles. To overcome such issues, digital technologies like Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Cognitive Automation (CA) come to the rescue of healthcare device manufacturers. These technologies help them identify better means to develop and launch innovative healthcare products and mitigate the cost associated with it.

Mobility Solutions for Remote Monitoring  

To remain competitive in the healthcare device market and monitor production operations remotely, healthcare device developers turn towards the implementation of mobility solutions. However, the proliferation of mobile devices has already allowed the medical device industry to generate new avenues for managing various product manufacturing operations from anywhere, at any time.

IoMT for Actionable Insights 

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is a connected healthcare device, health services, and software system. Advances in portability, connectivity, and miniaturization have powered the growth of IoMT and connected medical devices – that allow users to produce, collect, analyze and transmit data with the Internet. IoMT enables medical device manufacturing firms to get powerful data insights and develop value-based, digitally-powered medical devices.
