While the term MedTech might sound relatively novel, it refers to a technological shift that has been taking place since the previous century. For example, MRI technology — one of the major examples of a MedTech solution — has seen its development peak around the 1980s.
Nowadays, however, MedTech is becoming truly widespread and present in the daily lives of regular citizens. Why should you and how can you invest in MedTech development? We look behind the scenes of this incredibly lucrative industry (estimated global revenue in 2019 — 457 billion dollars!) in our guide below.
Every year we see new innovative solutions revolutionizing the MedTech industry, both on the micro and macro scale. Although MedTech has always been very highly linked to the use of external devices built specifically for medical use, current solutions are more and more often software rather than hardware-based.
Taking all this into consideration, what are the most common MedTech development areas that you might want to invest in?
Unlike many other industries, picking the right technological stack for a MedTech product isn’t easy. There is a huge difference between developing desktop software for doctors, a small mobile app for casual users, a huge medical device, or an IoT solution.
Because of this, instead of a standardized list of technical skills that a MedTech developer should possess, we list some of the most important technological trends in the MedTech industry. Depending on which of these you will want to leverage, you will need a different set of MedTech development experts on board.
Whether any of the above trends match the product you are developing or not, we recommend you to review your unique needs with a software consultant or an IT project manager experienced in MedTech development. They will be able to clarify what types of developers and other experts you exactly need and what tech skills should they have.
When it comes to MedTech development, cybersecurity is especially important. IoT products, for example, are one of the most common targets of hacker attacks as they are often left unprotected and vulnerable.
Make sure to tackle this problem early as medical data is one of the things that people want to keep to themselves and their relatives. If you let data leaks and other cyber breaches happen, the patients might be too afraid to use your solution.
There are, of course, many ways to keep your product cyber-secure but it’s important to note the current developments in the area of blockchain. It’s a unique way of transferring data securely by utilizing the power of distributed computing — data is saved on a huge number of devices so a hacker would need to alter the data on all of them, which is virtually impossible.
While the required hard skills may differ case by case, project by project, the most important soft skills for MedTech development stay the same. These are:
Even if the developer you hire has all the skills you want them to have, you should still make sure that they have previous experience in working within the medical industry, preferably specifically in a MedTech company. Medtech development requires a much different attitude and approach than other industries — remember that your solution will be directly impacting the health of other people.
Additionally, having such experience guarantees that your new MedTech development expert will be able to deliver results faster and more efficiently than a developer coming from another industry. The more the developer matches your company and unique project, the better the results both in the short and the long term.
We understand how difficult it can be to onboard all the MedTech development experts you need to take your unique product to the market. Your new hires need not only to have the highest level of expertise in relevant technologies but also have previous experience within the medical industry. In some local markets, such professionals are a true rarity.
