Disruptive innovations have proved to be a powerful way of thinking about innovation-driven growth. Technology continues to change our lives in subtle ways. Today, a large number of devices, sensors, cloud infrastructure, data and business intelligence tools are already in use. Disruptive innovation also creates a new market by disrupting an existing market, displacing established market leaders and alliances. It has been postulated that the future doctor-patient interaction & diagnosis will occur anytime and anywhere. AI, Robotics, Nanomaterials, Internet of Things in healthcare are transforming the world.
How disruptive technologies must be matched with innovative business models
Displaces older systems and ways of doing things
Models, antecedents and economic, social and organizational consequences
Role of IoT in Health Care
A digital future accelerated by COVID-19
Past few months have changed the way we look at technology which was introduced in households irrespective of the socio-economic strata. This revolution has had a magnificent impact on the health industry as well. Major trends that will continue to emerge are smartphones, big data, virtual reality, wearables, artificial intelligence, blockchain etc. which helped to ensure the best prevention and treatment making healthcare accessible in minimal duration, through means of telemedicine, video consultation, m-health.
New models of technology enabled care from Vaccination Certificate, Infection Monitoring, Remote monitoring, Telemedicine and Nursing Robots
Population health Management
Digital system supporting individual centric health
Consumerism and participative healthcare
In the time of digitalisation which is affecting all areas of industry including Healthcare. The term Industry 4.0 stands for fourth industrial revolution. This requires the interaction of technical objects with each other and integrated application of cloud based platforms. For the successful cooperation of interaction, interoperability is required. To obtain this, particular norms and standards with specifications are being set by international standardisation organisations
Role of globally harmonised standards for IoT devices: Enabling a 360 degree Healthcare view
Vision and Key paradigm of Industry 4.0
Reference architecture model Industry 4.0 (RAMI 4.0)
Mechanical, Electrical and communication standards between all vendors
Production line and process for standardization
Medical Device industry has been growing rapidly and constantly. With the increase in adoption of new technologies, the requirement of safety and performance also increases. Medical Device testing and calibration ensures safety, accuracy and functionality for patients as well as for the manufacturers also
Medical Grade IoT Sensors (Thermal Screening to Non-invasive monitoring): Role of calibration and accuracy in medical application
The Importance of testing of medical devices before delivery to the point of use such as hospitals, clinics, pathology labs
The Importance of Calibration as each item and device in a hospital, clinic or pathology lab is perfectly calibrated when it is delivered, but as it is used, it becomes susceptible to wear and tear. Each time it’s used, moved or bumped, the calibration gets knocked out of alignment a little bit
Impact of quality calibrated medical devices on patient health and safety, and its crucial role in determining the performance and efficiency of healthcare institutions
The impact of measurements taken from out-of-calibration instruments
Key parameters for bio-medical equipment calibration
India being a future hub for economic growth as more young and trained population is available for new ventures at all technological innovations and investments
Advanced manufacturing units deployment and Skill development for the younger generation for future growth
Availability of natural resources in ample amount for establishing high level manufacturing units for biotechnology, healthcare and biomedical sectors
More population provides more consumers to the industries for their several kind of products
Some problems also need to be addressed such as infrastructure, roads, electricity are deferring the foreign investors to invest in India upto some extent. Other problems like crime rate, policy problems, focus areas, red-tapism and operational glitches may also be discussed
Agriculture can affect a range of health issues including under nutrition, chronic/ infectious diseases, food safety, environmental and occupational health. How to address these issues and to plan strategies to find the solutions to overcome these issues?
Development and deployment of existing and new technologies for production, processing, preservation, and distribution of food
Other important health risks include agrochemical poisoning, transmissible animal diseases, toxic or allergenic agents, ergonomic hazards and accidental harms from machinery
India with huge diversity of medicinal plants is an excellent source for biomedical and healthcare support
AI-Enabled Genomics can help in the determination of personalised treatments at all levels
3D Printing can help Doctors replicate patient-specific organs. Advancements in 3D printing can be discussed
Wearable Technological devices can offer more than just counting steps such as monitoring heart rhythms, monitoring blood pressure, detecting atrial fibrillation and send reports to doctor etc
Use of AI and ML in point-of-care devices to facilitate medical practitioners as well as common population
Over the last few months hospitals have canceled or eliminated elective procedures, and physicians have restricted physical access to their practices. Those trends are accelerating the adoption of telehealth services as providers and patients turn to virtual visits for safety and convenience. Interactive medicine, also known as "live telemedicine", allows patients and physicians to communicate in real-time while also maintaining compliance.
Prior to Covid-19, patients used telehealth to "see any doctor" primarily for urgent care needs. The pandemic expanded the use of telehealth to "see any doctor" for the acute treatment and triage of patients with the coronavirus. but it also prompted a broader adoption of telehealth, allowing patients to "see my doctor" for ongoing care of chronic conditions. This new pattern of digital engagements is likely to continue and to increase the frequency of consultations, deepening the docotr-patient relationship.
Besides why and how of telemedicine, points such as pandemic conditions can be resolved using telemedicine
Advancements in user-friendly software as well as medical device based hardware could be an important topic of discussion
The ongoing revolution in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) has paved a way of transmitting knowledge globally, thus paced the innovation significantly. At the same time innovation and production activities of the companies are globalizing. This raises challenges in protecting, managing and enforcing Intellectual property rights across borders. So there is a need for information and implementation of well designed IP systems to encourage the future innovators.
Use of new technologies for innovations and how it can be used as an IP for the betterment of the human race
Commercialization of IP but keeping in mind the demand of the economy of the country involved (as it is an international summit so we can focus for this point towards Indian scenario).
ICMR Centre of Innovation and Bio Design (CIBioD) aims to promote innovation in medical devices and instruments by creating a conducive ecosystem, involving multiple premier technology institutes.
