It’s hard to overemphasize how much healthcare will change over the next twenty years due to advances in technology. We are finally reaching a critical mass of sorts, with progress in genetics, imaging, artificial intelligence, and predictive analytics. Of course, targeted therapies are nothing new, but the rapid pace of medical innovation is ushering in a new era of precision medicine and patient-tailored therapies.
Here is a recommended article from Strategy + Business Magazine – “How Precision Medicine Will Transform the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Industries.” It’s a great read.
The article points out barriers that are hindering the movement:
Externally, the uncertain legal and regulatory framework of precision medicine, a limited ability to integrate data sources due to a lack of widely accepted standards and methods, and continuous regulatory oversight with rules that were written for a previous generation of healthcare and data collection and management are significantly hindering progress
True Process is well aware of the problem of collecting medical device data. We are hard at work making it easier for clinicians and researchers to capture high-resolution, high-fidelity data from medical devices using our ViNES medical device data capture platform. We also provide device connectivity, integration, and messaging solutions to medical device and systems manufacturers that are looking to enable their devices for next-generation interoperability.
