Wipro helps a global medical device manufacturer with an integrated remote patient monitoring system
The client is a US-based leading global medical devices manufacturer and is a Fortune 500 company. Medical professionals from over 120 countries trust the client’s medical devices and systems for smart and real-time healthcare solutions to monitor cardiovascular, neuromodulation and diabetes patients.
As the evolution of cardiac devices opens up new vistas in the healthcare industry, the demand from emerging markets is increasing, and the key segments that are contributing to this growing demand are Home Care, Monitoring, and Diagnosis.The medical device manufacturers who are competing to capture these opportunities are now forced to roll out advanced device variants quickly. Consequently, the manufacturers are looking towards innovative technology solutions that would address the complex challenges to remain competitive.
This has intensified the pressure on the medical technology providers to reduce time to market, adhere to stringent regulatory compliance and design, and develop first time right devices. Besides the technology, solution providers have become an integral part of the value chain by providing innovation, greater ROI, faster time to market, and end-to-end ownership advantages.
An effective, flexible, and integrated remote patient monitoring system would address the challenges and issues centered around patient care, physician utilization, and clinic productivity. The client’s existing device system faces the challenge of scalability and flexibility issues in patient data monitoring, remote follow-ups with physicians, and technology maintenance costs. This resulted in the entry of competition with next-generation patient monitoring systems.
The client was looking for a technology partner who could design, develop, and prototype a next-generation device system that would be robust, agile, and technology independent with telemetry capabilities.
