In the news: The medtech regulation landscape and emerging healthcare technology trends
The healthcare industry is considered relatively resilient during an economic downturn, but the technology sector within healthcare is not immune to the effects of a recession. From reduced funding for new innovations to overall cutbacks on healthcare spending, healthcare tech is facing numerous challenges simultaneously.
In this month’s news roundup, we'll be covering the top ten healthcare tech trends that industry leader, Phillips, believe are on the horizon as the industry continues to weather staffing shortages, uncertain budgets, and cybersecurity threats. We’ll also look at the current medtech regulation landscape and dive deeper into the critical importance of endpoint security.
With staffing shortages, mounting obligations, and economic insecurity, it’s fair to say that healthcare providers worldwide are under pressure to do more with less. The key to overcoming these challenges, however, is through improving operational efficiencies and delivering innovative care models.
Healthcare technology holds the promise of supporting providers to meet their goals and deliver care effectively — and with efficient resource use. Learn more about how tech can help address today’s challenges through these 10 trends that Phillips expect to gain further traction in 2023.
Endpoint security refers to the protection of devices such as computers, smartphones, and medical devices that access the healthcare network. These devices are vulnerable to cyber-attacks, which can lead to the loss of sensitive patient information. In this article, take a deep dive into endpoint security and see why healthcare organizations must prioritize endpoint security to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of patient data.
For medical device makers – and the patients who rely on them – 2023 is poised to be a year of challenge and change for regulation. As the role of artificial intelligence and machine learning — combined with swift advances in monitoring technology and wearable sensors — increases there is no doubt that digital health is here to stay but it comes with concerns of security and integration.
See what leaders from across the medtech field are saying about the prospects and challenges for product regulation in 2023.
