Connectivity in medical devices is no longer a novelty; the ability to gather and exchange data across a network of devices is often a required part of any modern system. Devices with more sophisticated connectivity offer extensive potential improvements.
Unlocking this potential, however, requires more than an extension of the status quo. Delivering scalable, secure, stable software connected to a fast-paced cloud ecosystem necessitates a different approach to engineering.
This paper explores the key challenges a medical device company must overcome, specifically system architecture, data and system security, adaptability, verification, complex and evolving regulatory requirements, and more.
