Medical device apps aren’t just created so patients can easily control them. Clinicians like apps, too, because an integrated app helps them determine if the patient is using the device properly. Patient compliance is a critical factor in the safety and effectiveness of a treatment. Apps that monitor use frequency, treatment times, and even battery life is valuable information for a doctor. Even simple devices can increase their value with broader patient engagement. Mobile applications can put real-time data in the hands of clinicians for a direct impact on patient care.
With medical device development, often before the patient release, extensive clinical testing and evaluation is required. At C3, we’ve developed apps (at a lower cost) specifically designed for product clinical studies. This may involve a complex highly functional app for clinicians to view and log critical patient data to simplistic patient based apps that limit function and external parameters for a highly controlled clinical study. Sometimes the best app is not the prettiest, but the one you need to get the job done now.
We’ve all wished we had more control, and at the same time, wished others had less control. This is also true for connected devices. C3 has invested plenty of time in defining the right app for the right user. Clinicians need control to prescribe and monitor patients. Patients must be limited in control to prevent a negative impact in their care. Which is the best solution? We can create tiered apps that provide the right control and functionality to the right user. Gone are the days of plugging into a device to offload data. Clinicians can now diagnose and debug simply by being in proximity to the patient.
Our clearly defined proposal and process means you’ll know what you’re getting up front and at each stage along the way.
We’ve helped everyone from small startups to large corporations take their medical devices from idea to finished product.
Our team works with you as a partner to help you progress from the idea stage all the way to testing and manufacturing.
