Greater Manchester Medical Device Leadership Group Meeting
Arjun Sikand, Commercial Director of Health Innovation Manchester will present the Healthcare Innovation Adoption Pathway. This integrated approach to health and social care spans primary, community, secondary, tertiary and social care. The objective is to cut across traditional silo budgets, accelerating the adoption of innovative healthcare solutions that offer better patient outcomes and potential cost benefits.
Marcus Orton, CEO of Swabtech Ltd will update on the launch of the Medtech Early Technical Assessment tool. NICE and Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network (GMAHSN) developed the tool to enable early adoption.
Alistair Williamson, Managing Director of Lucid Innovation will discuss the challenges facing connected healthcare solutions. As consumers increasingly appreciate the benefits of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, interest in the potential of connected healthcare solutions is at an all time high. Connecting systems offer immense benefits, but healthcare is a highly regulated environment. Drawing on Lucid’s development experience, Alistair will provide a brief introduction to the core considerations in connected device development. Useful take-aways will include sources of information on data security, emissions, immunity, compatibility, power and compliance.
