The manufacturer of a medical device for diagnostics is often challenged to synchronize the product’s lifecycle with the device’s integrated IT. The reason is simple: A medical device will typically have a much longer lifecycle than most other product categories. This is largely due to the stringent regulations governing the medical device industry. On the other hand, a leading IT product will commonly reach its end of life – and yield to new improved versions – much faster than other kinds of products.
Consider the risks in this. There can be a big lifecycle disconnect between the medical device and the connected IT hardware and software at its foundation. Too often a medical device manufacturer will find that their maturing diagnostic product is relying on integrated technology components that are coming close to end-of-life or diminished support – or even passing these late-in-life stages.
How, then, can the medical device manufacturer guarantee customers that they will receive complete product support when some of their diagnostic product’s critical IT components may soon be outdated?
Solution: End-to-End IT Lifecycle Management
At all times in the medical device’s history – from project management through process optimization – the manufacturer must keep the big-picture view on the connected IT driving their product. They must match the device’s ever-evolving hardware and software lifecycle to the medical device product's own improvements. This is key to having the medical device work effectively for it's entire life.
It’s no small task. The medical device manufacturer may lack the resources and expertise – or even the desire – to make IT lifecycle management a core internal competency.
