Digitization in medical tech
Digitisation also offers an opportunity for medical tech. The first medical products have already been digitally enhanced. This will not only create new possibilities, for example in the evaluation of functions, places of use or service life of the products, but also open new business areas.
The sales market is expanding due to ever smaller and more portable products, which are further driving the trend in medical tech towards home care. Spatial ties to hospitals or other facilities are no longer required. The patients themselves become users of medical products. This results in new challenges but also exciting business models.
Many medical tech manufacturers are asking themselves how they can continue to position themselves in this rapidly changing environment in the future. The advantages of digitalization in medical tech are obvious, but the risks, especially in data protection and data security, must not be neglected and forgotten. We accompany you conception of collaborative platforms to the development and operation of IT solutions in medical tech.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Nowadays, medical tech companies distribute their products through a wide variety of sales channels. In times of digitalization, not only the customer wants to know where and when his product is available, but also the manufacturer. Therefore, traceability is becoming more and more important. Thanks to the Blockchain technology this is now possible with little effort. This method guarantees, besides a secure traceability, also the protection against fraud.
