Smart Manufacturing in Medical Devices

Medical manufactures, can access a specially tailored digital infrastructure from Siemens for the MD&D industry called “Operational Excellence through Smart Manufacturing”. This means to develop a digital infrastructure by using production digital twins to design and simulate manufacturing scenarios, schedule and execute production, enforcing routes, quality inspections to deliver high quality devices. This is also an approach for the small- to medium-sized businesses (SMB), the new emerging market leaders, aiming at creating the same digital infrastructure of their larger competitors to get their own innovation to market, rapidly, cost-efficiently and in compliance with high quality standards international regulatory authorities require.

The Collaborative Role of Technology and PharmD in Managing Chronic Conditions

Himsslearn

The prevalence and cost of chronic, cardiometabolic conditions like Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease is one of the greatest healthcare challenges we face today. Luckily, price points are coming down on cellular and Bluetooth-enabled medical devices like blood pressure cuffs and glucometers, and at the same time, enhanced interoperability capabilities are allowing us to seamlessly pull patient-generated data from the devices into analytics platforms and combine it with patient record data from the EHR. The connection gives clinicians a more complete view of their patients’ health whether at the point-of-care or virtually giving them the ability to detect costly complications before they happen, and prompting them to intervene with appropriate guideline-based management.
