- 60 minutes
This medical device training program will provide an understanding of creative methodologies to solve design and development challenges of connected solutions for patient monitoring, scheduling, tracking, or drug delivery. It will demonstrate how consumer technologies vary by level of complexity and how they can be used in healthcare.
Why You Should Attend
Medical devices will look and feel different in the next 20 years because our design criteria are changing. Home healthcare and the demands of remote patient monitoring add a new level of complexity. Design and usability research for home-based medical devices will elicit vastly different design inputs, because the user profiles are drastically different than they are at the hospital. The technology requirements will continue to increase with real concerns regarding how personal data will be protected, along with potential interference of device functionality by hackers, which may directly affect efficacy.
This webinar will explain how consumer vital tracking and clinical grade devices are converging. It will also discuss the issues developing these devices and how they’ve been solved in past development programs.
