Medical Devices change the way people in the Healthcare field interact with people and processes. Throughout the design of a Medical Device, the environments of doctors, nurses, and patients are carefully studied to determine how a new device can provide value to these groups. When we think in terms of products we tend towards isolation, considering only how a singular device can make an impact. When we think in terms of platforms, we begin to leverage connections. The most value is found when we think about the connections between multiple medical devices and how it can drive new insights and outcomes to the whole. Together, we will unpack the differences between a product and a platform and how to build an ecosystem to generate the most value back to healthcare providers and patients.
