At MEDIdesign we aim to harness the benefits of integration:
- A medical device may not be just a tool for performing a task, even though may be its primary function. The equipment is probably also designed to be a data-capture device to enable fast and reliable upload of data for immediate processing.
- A diagnosis is not just communicated to the individual patient, but also anonymously stored for large-data analysis against a wide range of criteria, designed to develop useful scientific know-how to benefit other patients.
- Expert systems can propose the next steps for the patient, potentially minimising further appointments, speeding treatment, improving outcomes and reducing cost.
