The 70th anniversary of World Health Day is April 7, 2018, and the World Health Organization (WHO) is asking leaders to commit to concrete steps that advance #healthforall. Their vision is that everyone everywhere should have access to essential quality health services without financial hardships.
We have been improving healthcare for both patients and providers for over 20 years, by designing, developing and connecting smarter healthcare devices and solutions. Here are 3 ways we remain committed to making #healthforall a reality.
1. Building next-gen medical devices and therapies
An aging population, rising cost of managing chronic conditions, and a focus on value-based care are changing the way we think about healthcare. Technology plays a critical role in addressing these realities.
We have brought more than 80 new medical and drug delivery products to the market to help millions of patients around the world. We are continually helping pharma and medical technology companies build connectivity into their next-generation medical devices and drug therapies. Connectivity enables new types of communication between the patient, their medical device, and the healthcare provider to improve outcomes for patients with real-time information. Our digital health tools ease access to this critical information outside of a healthcare facility and make the information more accessible and actionable.
2. Accelerating time to market for connected medical devices and therapies
Our integrated technology platforms give customers access to a modular approach to design, enabling them to shorten the product development cycle. In addition, our digital health platform, BrightInsight, is a medical-grade intelligent platform that optimizes connected therapies and medical devices through real-time, integrated data and actionable insights. Not only does this enable increased patient adherence and engagement, but it also helps simplify the execution of clinical trials needed for regulatory approvals.
The innovation doesn’t stop there. In partnership with Google Cloud, the BrightInsight team is developing advanced algorithms, fueled by Google’s machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities. As a result, healthcare providers will be able to more effectively address potential use cases such as drug dosing, decision support, personalized patient interventions and trend analysis.
BrightInsight enables more effective data collection and real-time analytics to help patients, physicians and medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers better understand device usage and medication adherence, and streamline the product development and certification process.
3. Providing healthcare anywhere, any time
Our cutting-edge healthcare solutions improve life for both providers and patients. The latest IoT solution help people stay on top of their health conditions anywhere in the world. Smart monitoring devices give patients interactive support and allow doctors to schedule remote follow-ups. Innovations in drug delivery systems make it easier to manage drug infusions from home.
New provider-focused technologies let doctors and nurses focus on their most important goal: delivering world-class care to every patient. Closed-loop smart solutions collect and analyze the patient data that providers need. From better diagnostic and imaging tools to hospital monitors and advanced surgical equipment, we are committed to providing the latest breakthrough technologies.
