Improve Quality of Connected Medical Devices: Effective Manufacturing Test Strategies
The advent of IoT is driving transformation in healthcare. Rising healthcare costs and consumer demands for better healthcare delivery are driving the widespread use of IoT in healthcare. This evolution is commonly known as the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). Today, we can easily find medical devices that are connected, such as ultrasound imaging systems, glucose monitors, bedside monitors, pacemakers, hearing aids, and wearable health monitors. With IoMT devices, non-critical patients can stay at home and be monitored through these devices to decrease hospital admissions and reduce costs. The overall IoMT market is expected to grow from USD $72.5 billion in 2020 to USD $188.2 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 21.0%. We will see the IoT greatly influencing all aspects of the healthcare segment, from monitoring, to diagnostic, to surgery and patient care.
