Significance of Medical Device Software Development & Its Uses
Software is gradually making itself prominent in the field of healthcare and medical science. Given the accessibility of a vast amount of technology
platforms such as Smartphone’s, personal computers, network servers and the rising flexibility of access and distribution such as Internet Cloud,
software that is set up for medical reasons and non-medical purposes today are in use in the healthcare domain.
To take a generic view, the present day regulations address the public health concerns of medical device software development in a conventional
way. However, the existing applications of policies and controls might not always translate or address the crucial public health concerns that are
posed by the Software as a Medical Device and neither ensures an apt balance between the patient/customer, security and promotion of public
health by facilitating advancement and innovation.
Today companies specializing in product R&D services make use of their experience in embedded software and connectivity to set up medical
equipments that enhance diagnostic capacities, simplify the treatment processes and also keep the medical patients engaged with their care.
These companies have experience in working with class I, II, and III medical equipments that allows them to set up integrated solutions that offer
services in multiple clinical fields and healthcare companies. By co-operating with consumers and engaging with industry leading external partners,
the service providers takes a product from the design stage through quality assurance, integration, certification and assistance. The focus areas
include the following:-
· Patient records
· Computerized physician order entry
· Clinical decision support
· Registration, admission, discharge and transfer
· Asset management
· Revenue cycle management
Analytics and decision support
· Clinical reference libraries
· Retrospective event analysis
· Performance analysis & management systems
· Data visualization systems
· Health information exchange (IHE, HL7)
· Device communication software
Compliance and regulatory software
· ePHI security and integrity enforcement solutions
· Patient portals
· Social networking and patient engagement
· Educational and reference mobile apps
As the medical equipments are becoming more complex and connected, the software developers today need to address the new user-interface,
control and security issues. It has been observed that behind successful medical device there is new age software. Designed in a way so that it can
conduct various tasks, medical software allows the medical equipments to interact with the body and also carry out various functions, from
monitoring the heart rate and also evaluating the blood flow to control the electrical pulses and dispensing medications. The challengers in terms
of data integrity, consistency, security are prominent in medical software device development.
