Internet of Things: Creating Challenges for Medical Device Manufacturers

We recently posted “Internet of Things: Expanding Into Medical Device Enterprise,” and welcome you to part two of the ongoing discussion about medical devices and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Realization

Because field update of software is possible for hardware that is no longer manufactured it is now probable that more than one DMR will be approved for use with the variety of different product configurations (hardware and software variants).  In addition to this an update of the product in the field requires the DHR not be a static lot based document.  It is now time based.

Internet of Things: Expanding into Medical Device Digital Enterprise

What is the definition of the Internet of Things (IoT)?

Gartner defines IoT as the following: “The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with the internal states or the external environment.”

If a medical device firm is implementing an IoT device, implied in the definition is a set of new product features related to the company ideation, realization and utilization systems. We will begin with a delineation some of the new capabilities and potential features IoT promises to bring to our devices.

This list will be fairly short to illustrate the difficulty in implementing this kind of technology, and the need for a digital model to support the effort not only in creation of the product, but just as critical, in management of the device after deployment.

Embedded Computing Creating New Business Opportunities

Embedded software is becoming even more important in product development, leading innovation in connected and engineered products.

Although embedded software presents new business opportunities, there are also development and security complexities that must be addressed. More functionality is needed to support new and differentiated products, with demands on price, performance, size, and time to market are accurately discussed.

Current Tech Trends: I4.0 Continues Driving Development

Software is eating the world!” is a phrase that we’ve used in the past, and the technology continues to be extremely disruptive. As organizations try to sort out the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), sometimes referred to as Industrie 4.0 (I4.0), decision makers shouldn’t be too hasty in deployment plans.

Trying to figure out how to deal with punctuated innovation times, shrinking product lifecycles, and growing complexities is difficult. Customers must find methods to automate systems engineering while developing quality embedded software when consumers expect new and differentiated products. (more…)

ALM: Helping Make Sense of Evolving Medical Device Complexities

Software has evolved to become the key differentiator for medical device manufacturers, even though there are continued challenges.

The use of a unified application lifecycle management (ALM) solution, such as Polarion ALM, accelerates innovation while at the same time streamlining quality assurance and automating proof of compliance.

Despite the benefits of software innovation for medical devices, there are a number of strict quality requirements, product failure risks, and even more regulatory complexity.
