Trend: Taking health (and brain health) care “beyond the pill”

How Device Mak­ers Can Take Health­care “Beyond the Pill” (Med­ical Device and Diag­nos­tic Industry):

One thing is clear: Pharma’s com­mit­ment to “beyond the pill” has nev­er been so apparent.

Each and every phar­ma com­pa­ny seems to have formed a divi­sion or a strate­gic team to explore new ser­vices around patient com­pli­ance, pop­u­la­tion health data and fur­ther­ing con­nec­tiv­i­ty for improv­ing patient management…

Medtron­ic, Abbott, GE and J&J have shown how to achieve FDA approval for the use of data from devices, although these are pro­pri­etary platforms…Healthcare providers can see trends mapped out through dash­boards and can use that to make clin­i­cal deci­sions about the patient’s care…

Putting the physi­cian-patient vis­it as the tar­get for wearables/devices data can cre­ate tremen­dous val­ue. If data from all med­ical devices and wear­ables could be con­sol­i­dat­ed, it makes it eas­i­er for physi­cians to assess patients’ com­pli­ance with drug reg­i­mens. It can also enable titra­tion of pre­scrip­tions where physi­cians can adjust dos­es until desired results are reached.”
