Gilles Lunzenfichter is the CEO of Medisanté, an innovator in medical IoT. He wants to put the internet of things (IoT) to work for care teams by leveraging the cloud and cellular IoT in an open manner for non-identifiable device data while leaving the data sovereignty of sensitive data to healthcare providers and their health IT systems.
After seeing in his professional career the power of the cloud in abstracting servers, network and storage in the IT-industry over the last 15 years, he believes that the same fate is reserved to the medtech industry if they don’t change their DNA of operating in a hardware silo of excellence with a bit of cloud on top of it.
While the accuracy, usability and reliability of medical devices remain of paramount importance, their value shifts from the device itself to how well it is connected to health IT systems. It’s the key to enable remote patient monitoring and decentralized clinical trials.
In this shift, the medtech vendors are challenged to become more interoperable with health IT systems. Being self-serving and monetizing data in a silo though a mobile app is not enough for medtech vendors and tech giants to add real value for care teams in healthcare and life science.
