Diving into digitalization in the medical device industry

By Christina Rucinski

How can medical device manufacturers drive profitability in today’s era of increased complexity? The answer is through digitalization.

Digitalization is affecting every industry and creating new opportunities. It can help companies develop innovative products and bring them to market faster with high quality. The status quo is simply not good enough anymore. Innovation without digitalization is no longer an option.

Medical device companies are facing challenges, such as:

  • Global competition
  • Intense cost pressure
  • Continued regulatory scrutiny

Relying on paper trails can lead to missed deadlines, human error and process inefficiency. Today, manufacturers and their information are working in silos. This means there is little chance of capturing traceability and key knowledge.

To be more nimble and get to market quicker, medical device companies must transform their businesses with the digital enterprise. The digital enterprise takes advantage of digital data, virtual product models and a cohesive digital thread of information.
