The Importance of Connected Drug Delivery Devices

Drug delivery systems are much more sophisticated today than conventional devices. Many of these devices are state-of-the-art medtech devices with electronics and sensors that allow for dosage and timing monitoring and provide immediate feedback to patients.

Fremont, CA: Since the last few years, the healthcare sector has gradually digitized with the widespread use of connected devices in laboratories and healthcare facilities. The widespread accessibility of low-cost connectivity, such as near-universal access to technology, including mobile technology, has opened the door to new opportunities in the healthcare sector.Connected drug delivery devices are wirelessly connected and smart electronic devices that allow patient therapy. These devices are mainly equipped with a sensor that offers many features such as adhesion trackers, residual dosing, and patient education resources.

Drug delivery systems are much more sophisticated today than conventional devices. Many of these devices are state-of-the-art medtech devices with electronics and sensors that allow for dosage and timing monitoring and provide immediate feedback to patients. This helps patients to know whether or not a dose has been adequately administered. Many of the available devices are also connected to applications and programs via wireless connections or cables that allow data transfer. As a result, demand for connected drug delivery devices is expected to increase by 24.6 per cent in the CAGR during the forecast period from 2020 to 2027.

Nowadays, people are managing every aspect of their daily lives online with computers at their fingertips. In the meantime, pharmaceutical and medtech firms are looking for ways to help people stay on top of their treatment regimens and thus improve outcomes. The most important step in developing a connected drug delivery device is to define the product and find out whether it is feasible.

Firms should evaluate the medical device quickly in order to evaluate whether or not the device is feasible in the first place. Once a product definition and feasibility stage has emerged, firms need to consider creating a document tree related to mechanical, software and electrical assets with specific requirements.
