Working with Medical Technology companies to develop solutions across the patient’s entire healthcare journey.
In MedTech, the when, where, and how of care is changing. Patients receive medical care and health data multiple times a day rather than once or twice a year. With telehealth and remote monitoring, doctors of all fields can better administer care outside of traditional clinical settings. And thanks to wearable technology, patients are able to view and track their medical data and adjust their treatments and behaviors as they do.
The global MedTech market is on growing rapidly and so is digital health. But this growth requires change. For years, the MedTech industry has successfully brought new products to market through innovative science and engineering that has significantly improved our lives. But today, patients’ and healthcare provider expectations are evolving and increasing, and the high growth of the market has attracted tech giants who are looking to expand their business leveraging their technology in new ways that will have significant disruptive impact on the traditional MedTech players. The trends are not going away, and MedTech needs to redefine its positions in the ecosystem and ultimately be proactive in helping the Healthcare industry evolve.
In this year’s Tech Vision, where we surveyed 100 MedTech Executives 91% of MedTech executives believe the Metaverse will have a positive impact on their organizations.
The Metaverse Continuum incorporates all digitally enhanced realities—both social and business-related. It creates opportunities for truly humanized digital MedTech ecosystems that meet customer needs across the value chain—manufacturing, sales, after-sales service, training, and supply chain management. A true opportunity to transform payer, provider, healthcare professional (HCP) and consumer experiences for improved patient care.
Our four tech trends reveal how new technology innovations like the Metaverse are reshaping the medical technology experiences of the future.
The experience renaissance in the MedTech industry
In this podcast, Matt Dobbin, Accenture’s Managing Director and MedTech Lead joins Bruce Holley, North American Customer sales and service lead, to discuss the business of experience in MedTech, “liquid expectations,” and how to thrive in this new environment.
Four pressing questions the MedTech industry faces
As people expect more authentic connections and contextual experiences across their healthcare necessities – from what they need to where they seek medical care - MedTech companies can meet these new needs by thinking more strategically about business models enabled by a robust, connected technology platform.
Leader in MedTech innovation
Post-pandemic across the care continuum, the medical devices industry has witnessed an uptick in the adoption of smart medical devices, including remote health monitoring applications, wearables, digital surgery, and more. This triggered the industry's shift toward building a connected care ecosystem that seamlessly integrates people, technology, and data across healthcare settings.
Accenture's strategic partnerships and innovative platforms, in addition to the scale and quality of its talent resources, has earned it a Leader position in Everest Group’s Connected Medical Device Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2022.
