Advancements in medical technology especially driven by electronics and software must, as a prime objective, enable wider and farther reach of medical products for larger good. It is important that medical devices used for both diagnostics and therapeutics are affordable and available to everyone who needs them. At Agiliad, we believe that we can only help realize this need.
There are critical factors, and quite a few of them are related to engineering, that determine and influence the impact of medical devices e.g. cost of the device, use case, maintainability etc. A combination of use case driven engineering and cost innovation will be the key. As a strategic focus, Agiliad is committed to invest and contribute to initiatives in this direction and support medical device innovators in building such high impact device, primarily by leveraging our experience with global leaders.
Our approach is derived on the fact that the needs of emerging markets can be addressed not just by packaging the products in a certain way, but in most cases using a grounds up approach. This is likely to include analysis of local use cases, proof of value of existing products and architectures and in most cases, coming up with an engineering approach that is custom made to address unique challenges related to these use cases.
- Involving the right ecosystem stakeholders: Agiliad has built strong collaborative partnerships with hospitals & clinical research setups, academic institutes, niche research and consulting companies and start-ups to identify, conceptualize and realize prototypes for ideas to build high impact medical devices.
- Technology Initiative: We believe that we need to be a step ahead in our pursuit to be an enabling partner for our customers. This especially applies to our technical know and translates in terms of how we leverage cross domain skills in the medical devices areas. Our initiatives in creating useful assets and accelerators are leveraged by our customers, especially domain specialists who depend on our teams to drive engineering and technology.
- Understanding the domain: Our domain specialists in the medical devices are equipped to appreciate and contribute to the product development by bringing in specific skills that are critical to the domain. These are areas like medical imaging, point of care devices, patient monitoring systems and various kinds of stimulation techniques.
