Organizer: MedTech Intelligence (MTI)
Date: Thursday, May 19, 2022
Time: 12:00 – 2:30 PM EDT

MTI Webinar:
Connected Care: Digital Health, Wearables & Connectivity Series:
Telemedicine & Healthcare Outside of the Hospital

Organizer: MedTech Intelligence (MTI)
Date: Thursday, May 12, 2022
Time: 12:00 – 2:30 PM EDT
Venue: Virtual

What will be the future of telemedicine? Which parts of healthcare will become totally virtual? How will telemedicine change the practice of medicine and the way that provider organizations operate? How will telemedicine blend into the larger continuum of care delivery options that providers and patients can access.

Also, if telemedicine largely remains “zoom with your doctor or nurse,” what are the upper limits on what can be accomplished over video conferencing or a phone call? s webinar will also look at what additional value we can deliver through virtual care if we can use it in tandem with powerful medical devices given to patients to use in non-clinical settings (i.e., their daily lives in the home, work, school, in transit). If we can use devices to remotely diagnose, monitor and treat, then can we accomplish more?

Orthogonal’s CEO Bernhard Kappe will be presenting at this webinar.

Talk Title: Maintaining a Validated State for Connected Medical Devices, SaMD & DTx in an Era of Chaotic Innovation

From AI/ML to smartphones to cloud computing to web services, MedTech faces a growing imperative to leverage these technologies to support the core functions of a regulated medical device. The vendor creating and operating these new technologies have an admirable focus on continuous improvement, but often isn’t compatible with MedTech’s traditional approaches to regulated change management.

We can no longer ignore this uncomfortable truth. Instead, we need to adapt to a new set of architectural approaches, best practices, and systems thinking, embracing a more modern approach to device safety and the meaning of the validated state. Join us to discuss/debate.
