SMART MEDICAL DEVICES IMPROVE PATIENT HEALTH

Advances in artificial intelligence, Bluetooth connectivity and other technological developments are enabling smart medical devices to come to the forefront of healthcare. Smart medical devices allow providers to tap into enormous amounts of data from anywhere, helping improve the health of patients with chronic and expensive health conditions.

THE “DIGITAL TWIN” REFINES PERFORMANCE OF MEDICAL DEVICES

How can you safely test new medical technology? A “digital twin.” A digital twin is a computer-modeled replica of a physical person. In health care, digital twins can be used to model both medical devices and patients to see how devices work on people with specific conditions. Once the transition to a real-world person is able to take place, more data is generated which further refines and perfects the device’s development and performance.

“LEARNED” MEDICAL DEVICES INDIVIDUALIZE PATIENT CARE

Medical devices that can “learn” and adapt their performance to the needs of a specific patient will contribute to more tailored, individualized approaches to patient care. The more data a device can collect, the more accurate it becomes, reaching human-level performance.
