Cloud-enabled healthcare innovation is poised to help millions across a range of conditions. Understanding the realistic costs and risks associated with medical device cloud connectivity is critical.
HOUSTON (PRWEB) November 18, 2020
Galen Data Inc., announces the release of a 28-page whitepaper entitled “The Definitive Guide to Medical Device Connectivity,” which offers in-depth guidance on device-to-cloud connectivity for medical device companies. The guide is co-authored by a team of leading experts in medical device design and development, who have a combined 50+ years of experience in healthcare technology, medical devices, and regulatory compliance.
Cloud computing technologies have transformed countless industries. Over the last six years, there has been an ever-growing number of companies developing medical devices with a cloud dependence. Safely connecting devices to the cloud can be an incredibly time-consuming process and poses critical regulatory and financial risks. Knowing these risks and mitigation strategies early in the development process is critical to commercial success.
This comprehensive whitepaper provides guidance across a range of connectivity considerations, and answers the following questions:
- Why should I connect a medical device to the cloud?
- How is cloud computing and IoT (the Internet of Things) technology set to disrupt healthcare?
- What are the steps needed to prepare for medical device connectivity?
- What are the regulatory, cybersecurity, and privacy implications for a medical device?
- What can I expect when building cloud connectivity in-house as compared to leveraging a third-party platform?
“This whitepaper was written for anyone interested in medical device connectivity, but especially for founders and executives of medical device companies who are considering cloud connectivity for their devices,” said Chris DuPont, co-author, and CEO and cofounder of Galen Data. “Cloud-enabled healthcare innovation is poised to help millions across a range of conditions. Understanding the realistic costs and risks associated with medical device cloud connectivity is critical (and often overlooked) in the early stages of development.”
The newly released whitepaper clarifies device connectivity needs, including hardware and software considerations, regulatory, security, and privacy issues, and more. Armed with this knowledge medical device innovators can confidently make decisions about connecting their medical devices to the cloud.
