The confluence of rapid progress in wearable medical devices, advanced sensors, and in artificial intelligence (AI) and Blockchain technologies allows for new ways of collecting data while ensuring the integrity, accountability, and tracking of devices that assist with data interpretation. The availability of many different machine learning techniques and models from potentially different vendors compounds the challenges in tracking conclusions from analyzing the data. Medical device supply chains clearly need to evolve in a world with AI and wearables, and with Blockchain technology you can.

Topics covered will include:
  • How modern medical device supply chains and collection of medical data need to evolve for provenance and accountability
  • Exploring the various stages of data collection to improve machine learning and data interpretation
  • A look at medical device examples
