From surgical robots to “smart hospitals” to wearable medical devices and virtual doctor visits, new technology is revolutionizing healthcare. But with patients’ health and lives at stake, even the most innovative products must still meet stringent industry regulations and standards for safety and security. At the same time, developers are under intense pressure to accelerate time-to-market and reduce costs with modern software solutions and technology. Wind River® is helping medical technology developers meet these challenges to usher in a new era of innovation, operating efficiency, and improved patient care with a portfolio of proven and modern software.
KEEPING PATIENTS SAFE THROUGHOUT A DEVICE’S LIFECYCLE
To make medical devices safer and more secure for patients, part of a 2018 FDA announcement calls for mandatory built-in capabilities for providing safety and security updates. But how will medical equipment manufacturers meet the new requirements securely, reliably, and cost-effectively?
The Wind River® portfolio of software products enables medical device companies to use solutions such as virtualization and containerization to design safe, secure, and reliable update functions into their devices. Read this use case to find out how.
PROTECTING PATIENTS IN THE AGE OF CYBERTHREATS
As medical devices and patient healthcare have become increasingly connected to the Internet, cybersecurity has become a top priority for medical equipment companies that need to meet regulatory requirements as well as mitigate risk for their company brand and reputation. Cybersecurity must be built into the entire device lifecycle—from design, development, and manufacturing to operational maintenance and decommissioning.
How can you ensure that a medical device will successfully operate in an IEC 80001 conformant healthcare environment.? Read our white paper to find out.
LIVES DEPEND ON RELIABLE MEDICAL DEVICES
Patients’ health and lives depend on their doctors and the equipment they use. Whether it is a pacemaker, infusion pump, MRI machine, or robotic surgery machine, medical equipment simply cannot fail.
So how can medical equipment companies ensure that their medical equipment operates with the utmost quality and reliability? They must select the best and most reliable software technology for the design and development of their medical products. Read our blog to learn how to choose the right system software for medical devices.
