The Role of Technology in the Medical Devices Industry

With almost everything under the sun being touched in one or another way by technology; medical devices are not exempt from this influence. Technology and medical devices have always had a strong bond with each other. Newer technologies that have sprung up over the past few years have accentuated their already strong linkage. So, which new technologies have the potential to impact medical devices in a big way? There are many, but let us consider these among them:

Artificial Intelligence: Undoubtedly, the real shaker for the medical devices industry is AI. AI has been around for a while now, but with the major impetus it received with the advent of the cloud, which makes its monstrous amounts of data manageable, AI’s prowess seems more capable of actualizing.

Its uses in the medical devices industry too may become more prominent in the years to come.



IoT: The Internet of Things is another phenomenon that could impact medical devices strongly.

The most crucial element it could introduce into the industry is likely to be connectivity. Connectivity of medical devices could alter the game for the medical devices industry.
