The August 28, 2015, edition of MDDI DeviceTalk features Have You Targeted Your Design for Fast Adoption?, an exclusive guest blog by StarFish Medical Vice President of Product Development, John Walmsley.
Digital Health has many definitions. One common element is devices with amazing capabilities and the ability for patient and clinician stay in close touch with those devices and data. This enables new business models, new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities and a new level of Post Market Surveillance.
John describes how digital health product adopters are already creating a financial pulling force. Patients pay to be healthy, doctors push for purchases in their hospitals to help with patient care, and providers are willing to invest in order to save more later. He then discusses the implications for patients, clinicians, and medical devices, and examines products and projects that utilize the new paradigm to empower consumers.
