Remote patient monitoring has the potential to transform the medical device
industry. But it can’t happen without collaboration with digital health companies that can provide the infrastructure to gather data from these devices and generate real world evidence (RWE).
In a new eBook, executives from Huma, Abbott, Smith & Nephew and AliveCor share how they are using RWE collection to support remote patient
monitoring and improve patient outcomes in neurology, cardiology and orthopedic surgery. It also explores how medtech and digital health companies can collaborate to maximize patient engagement and to navigate regulatory requirements.
For example, AliveCor has used RWE to underscore the effectiveness of its cardiac monitoring technology to reduce ER and hospitalization.
“Just by adding remote patient monitoring, we were able to show
real-world evidence of nearly 56% reduction in emergency room
use and then 68% reduction in hospitalization for patients with
arrhythmia. That is powerful,” said Dr. Archana Dubey, chief clinical officer with AliveCor.
Healthcare executives also share some of the advantages of collaborating with digital health companies.
“I can’t walk into a CIO conversation. It’s just not our comfort zone,” said Paul Trueman, global VP for health economics and market access at Smith
and Nephew. “You need a trusted partner who can do this for you and someone
who’s going to speak in the right language and come up with a value
proposition for that CIO in the IT department.”
