Re-thinking Medical Device Management: Driving Digital Innovation, Analytics & Supply Chain Efficiencies

COVID19 disruptions have accelerated the need for medical device organizations to digitize their supply chain and transform device management. Medical device organizations can leverage advanced analytics to optimize inventory of device parts thereby ensuring there is neither high capital tie-up due to stockpiling of devices nor stock out of devices at provider facilities and hospitals.

Besides digitizing the medical device supply chain, organizations must aim to transform device management and maintenance. Traditionally, medical device organizations have followed a reactive approach for device maintenance leading to unplanned downtime and unnecessary service visits by field engineers for device maintenance. Through the adoption of an AI-based proactive approach, organizations can reduce field visits by over 20%, intelligently monitor devices, alert service teams in real-time and reduce the overall cost of maintenance.

In this panel discussion industry luminaries shared insights on steps device organizations can take to digitize the overall supply chain and drive proactive maintenance of devices.
