Here’s the exchange… The question I received   I realize that the big news is the NPRMs being released, but one thing that I have been interested in is the big push … Continue reading “OAuth2 for Healthcare: Are we ready?”

Datamanagement bij onderzoek

Onderzoekers leveren aan het eind van hun project data op die vindbaar, toegankelijk, uitwisselbaar, herbruikbaar en duurzaam opgeslagen zijn. Daarmee volgt ZonMw de breed toegepaste principes van FAIR-data; data die Findable, Accessible, Interoperable en Reusable zijn.

Risk Management in Biologics Technology Transfer

  Biowebspin, June 27th, 2016

Risk Management in Biologics Technology Transfer

by Toso R, Tsang J, Xie J, Hohwald S, Bain D, in PDA J Pharm Sci Technol, 2016

Technology transfer of biological products is a complex process that is important for product commercialization. To achieve a successful technology transfer, the risks that arise from changes throughout the project must be managed. Iterative risk analysis and mitigation tools can be used to both evaluate and reduce risk. The technology transfer stage gate model is used as an example tool to help manage risks derived from both designed process change and unplanned changes that arise due to unforeseen circumstances. The strategy of risk assessment for a change can be tailored to the type of change. In addition, a cross functional team and centralized documentation helps maximize risk management efficiency to achieve a successful technology transfer.

As we count down the days to e-Health, I’m reminded of the diverse and focused teams who have been working diligently to bring about this conference.  As a co-host along with COACH and Infoway, we are proud of the work that’s gone into this unique and dynamic conference and excited to see everything come together in what promises to be an amazing opportunity to connect so we can truly reimagine healthcare delivery in Canada.  

What makes e-Health unique is the wide breadth of expertise it is able to draw on, from industry, to policy makers, to clinicians, to patients, researchers, vendors and the HI community. Together, they are able to raise relevant and timely topics that generate new questions and innovative thinking. I have been an active participant in e-Health for several years, and each year I leave the conference with new insights and energy.

This year is no exception, from the Hacking e-Health competition, to eRants to the individually tailored breakfast symposiums and the more than 250 presentations and sessions, #eHealth2016 promises to deliver something for everyone.

I’ll be moderating the plenary session on the afternoon of June 6, Reimagining Healthcare in Canada: The Case for Optimism. In preparation for the session, the panelists (Peter Vaughan, Neil Fraser and Catherine Claiter-Larsen) and myself discussed the importance of making connections to the opening keynote earlier that day, Reimagining Healthcare in Canada: Connecting Innovators.  We were all in agreement that the value is in the different perspectives we bring to the table, the ideas—and questions—we raise and the discussions these ideas generate. We hope they get you thinking and talking about innovative e-Health solutions and their potential for reimagining healthcare long after this year’s conference is over.

See you all at #eHealth2016

Success factors for innovations entering the medtech market

Success factors for innovations entering the medtech market

by Sara Turcinov by Charlmers University of Technology, 2016

A start- up success could be learned and taught. By performing a case study on a start-up this thesis explore factors that can increase the odds of successful market adoption when developing medical technology. Theoretical frameworks about customer development and innovations within medical technology have been compiled to build a theoretical base, and chose methodology. Stakeholders are verified and knowledge and insights are gathered through interviews, observations and validation in customer settings. Financial- stakeholder- and market analysis are performed on insights and information is gathered to strengthen the understanding about how to succeed with innovations and deliver, capture and validate value as well as avoiding risks.

Economy and quality is found to be the most important factors for market adoption within medtech. Economy implies the importance of a good cost benefit analysis and cost should be equal or superior to competing methods if positioned on an existing market. Quality is built through providing accurate products with benefits compared to competing methods on the market. Market and disease must be thoroughly investigated to understand competitive factors and opportunities. When investigating the market personal relationships with customers are important to collect insights, build competitive advantages as well as to build knowledge through cooperation with customers. Further education is important to teach customers how to handle the innovated product and their personal tasks. Customers prefer automatic systems where manual steps are simple to perform and critical steps are reduced. Safety marginal should be built through solutions as overcapacity and short throughput times.

To reach the market co-operation with experts and market-professionals is essential to create a brand identity on economy and quality. Local knowledge could be used to manage target market, risks and regulations. Patents and investments are crucial to success and should be investigated globally, the best investors has knowledge about the market. Most of the assumptions made could be further developed and improved through the implementation of the first minimum viable product, MVP, in a customer setting where the product-market fit could be completed.

It took nearly a year for us to pull the trigger. The start-up trigger, that is.

Our team had devoted the majority of our professional careers to different facets of Canadian healthcare and we could no longer ignore the elephant in the room. We’d all owned smartphones for nearly a decade and observed its heavy use in our respective professional environments. It was obvious that smartphone use in the workplace was only going to get bigger.

The plastic surgeons in our team were regularly documenting clinical conditions using the camera on their smartphones and using chat functions to collaborate. The captured images included everything from marginally person-identifiable clinical photos such as close-up shots of moles and rashes, but there were just as many highly sensitive images including that of surgical reconstructions with many photographs clearly showing the patient’s face or unique and identifiable scars and tattoos. The health lawyers in our team on the other hand were having to represent healthcare professionals and institutions, with greater frequency, who had been caught up in health information breach cases associated with using unsecure smartphone chat and photo apps.

Our healthcare Canadian healthcare professional communication smartphone app, ShareSmart, was developed in close collaboration with healthcare stakeholders. We appreciate that our success is in large part to our ongoing involvement of not only the primary users of our product, but also of healthcare consumers, policy makers, researchers and tech innovators. That’s why @ShareSmartApp is participating in #eHealth2016 – to engage in meaningful dialogue and to hear from the experts in the field, in order to inform our ongoing evolution to better meet the needs of Canadian healthcare. We are grateful to @eHealthConf for nominating us to be a part of the first iteration of Innovation Alley and look forward to meeting everyone! If we don’t get a chance to personally meet, please drop us a line at rtabata@sharesmart.ca (Rena Tabata), ShareSmart.ca or ping us on FaceBook (ShareSmart) or Twitter (@ShareSmartApp).
