Many agree the simplest cautionary measure is to maintain some physical distance from our radiation-emitting devices—but clearly that will be much more difficult when the device is strapped to one’s body.

Why this matters: Although the number of products that fall within the Internet of Things is expanding at an exponential rate, few connected devices have attempted the kind of partnership that Jawbone and Big Ass Fans have. The technology that goes into their wearable/appliance integration may light the way for others to follow suit, leading to an age of more automated comfort and energy savings in the home.

“Integrating fitness trackers with appliances makes sense in the context of personalization,” Reed said. “Today, machines recognize operating commands, but many do not distinguish between individual users. Enhancing a person’s experience with an appliance is possible by integrating fitness trackers, and what we’re doing with Jawbone to improve sleep is an exciting first step.

Samsung's Wearable Vision unveiled when they gave members of the press a peek at its vision for smart home automation. BK Yoon, president and CEO of Samsung, said during the 2014 IFA tech conference in Berlin that the future home will be responsive — the walls will move to create new floor plans when, for example, you're hosting a big dinner party and want to borrow a little space from the living room. The refrigerator will tell you when items within are expired. You'll be able to cook over a stove top with the help of recipe holographics, so you don't have to get your devices dirty by accessing directions via mobile.  Less mention on the power trend of wearables in the workplace though

Parks Associates has released new research about caregivers and the role digital health devices play in their lives. According to Parks, 41 percent of US caregivers in households with broadband internet use a digital health device. Eight percent use some kind of online tool to coordinate their efforts.

The feature caregivers are most interested in is an “electronic panic button” — something like a mobile personal emergency response system or mPERS.


The survey indicated that 44% of those who identify as current or future caregivers are interested in such a device, with a further 30% interested in an wearable wrist worn tracker with the same panic button functionality.  - In terms of current adoption, 27%  of US broadband households currently own and use at least one connected health device, 8% of caregivers use “an electronic watch” to track the family member under their care. 


In June 2013, the Pew Internet and American Life project tackled caregiving and found that adults who are unpaid caregivers for a parent or child use online and mobile health tools considerably more than the average American, but only 59% of connected caregivers find internet tools helpful in giving care. 52% said that online tools helped them deal with the stress of being a caregiver.

Disruptors in Medtech Should Not Ignore Compliance | MDDI Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry News Products and Suppliers

Disruptors in Medtech Should Not Ignore Compliance | MDDI Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry News Products and Suppliers | WEARABLES - INSIDABLES - IOT - CONNECTED DEVICES - QUANTIFIEDSELF by PHARMAGEEK | Scoop.it

The $3 trillion healthcare market has its lure.

By last year, 24 of the Fortune 50 companies had elbowed their way through healthcare’s front door. 

Built around new, disruptive technologies, many new entrants are focused on the device side of the business. However, these new entrants must not overlook one critical element during the development cycle: the web of compliance requirements threaded throughout healthcare.

So far these nontraditional healthcare companies developing medical products have primarily focused on innovative technology. The examples are numerous - Apple has launched a mobile health product capable of monitoring heart rate, Verizon introduced healthcare IT solutions connecting clinicians to their patients, and AT&T has launched mHealth, a platform for mobile application development.

However, as companies venture into deeper waters, they must become fluent in the alphabet soup of government regulatory bodies and industry standards entities that enforce compliance requirements in multiple phases of the product lifecycle. The AMA (American Medical Association); CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services); FDA (Food and Drug Administration); as well as HHS’s OIG (Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General) all have roles in R&D, development, launch and commercialization.

The laws and standards these entities enforce impact nearly all operations of the medtech industry, including commercial practices, development, medical affairs, testing, manufacturing, documentation, billing, reimbursement, risk assessment, traceability, practice ethics, patient rights, referral laws, interactions with doctors and government officials and more.

For companies whose core business is not heavily regulated, developing the infrastructure and culture of compliance can be especially daunting. But failing to proactively plan for and develop a compliance program doesn’t simply risk a company’s entrance into the healthcare space; it can jeopardize a new entrant’s larger organization if liabilities arise that can affect other business units.

Pause, if you will, before that dizzying array of rules and regs, but recognize that, somewhere out there, a potential competitor is already moving along the compliance pathway. Analysis of government filings by PwC’s Health Research Institute identified 24 digital health devices that were cleared by the FDA in just the first 10 months of 2014. So sitting back is no solution  if you are committed to providing better offerings.

What should a new entrant do as it develops new products?

Factor compliance risks into business structureMake sure the compliance organization is scalable andKnow the universe of risks and regulations.

Factor compliance risks into business structure when developing a medical entity
We recommend both legal and physical separation of a medical business from non-medical lines through the creation of a separate business unit. This structure limits the exposure for nonhealthcare business units to healthcare-specific compliance risks.

Consider the case where the company is using the same manufacturing facility to manufacture medical as well as nonmedical products. In a worst-case scenario of noncompliance, were a regulatory agency to shut down a facility’s manufacturing, both medical and non-medical business housed there would be impacted.

In addition to minimizing risk, separation can protect nonmedical business lines by helping streamline operations and simplifying compliance requirements. For example, the separation of medical and nonmedical businesses makes it possible for healthcare-specific training to be mandated only for those working on medical products, instead of forcing the entire corporation through a training program regardless of an employee’s involvement with medical products. Other similar efficiencies may also be found in areas of R&D, manufacturing, sales and marketing.

Make sure your compliance structure is scalable, and comes with a robust oversight mechanism
A robust compliance organization is the single most important mechanism to manage compliance risks. Further, that organization must be scalable beyond the initial, startup nature of the business. Importantly, those growth needs must be considered at early phases of development.

One of the most effective compliance organization structures in PwC’s experience has a single executive in charge of compliance requirements reporting directly to the head of the medical business unit. This supports operational simplicity while outlining clear roles and responsibilities at the executive level.

This also provides an independent, internal evaluation of potential risk issues and minimizes conflicts of interest that could come from reporting to other departments. In this way, potential compliance issues can be raised to the proper level, and receive the proper attention, without being unduly influenced by financial or other business metrics.

Know the universe of risks and regulations applicable to your health business
New entrants need to thoroughly analyze applicable compliance risks and regulations. Some compliance requirements depend on product complexity while others depend on the target customer.

Here is a list of industry compliance standards and regulatory guidance that is a great place to start in order to develop a best-fit risk control framework:

AMA Code of Medical Ethics Opinion 8.061 – Gifts to Physicians from IndustryAdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals (revised 2009)Enforcement Lessons: Settlement AgreementsFederal Sentencing Guidelines Chapter 8 Organizational Guidelines (revised 2004, 2010)HHS’s OIG Compliance Program Guidance for Medical Device ManufacturersOther HHS OIG Guidance: OIG WorkPlan, Advisory Opinions, Fraud & Alert BulletinsSarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002; and21 CFR Regulations: Part 11, 803, 806, & 820.

There are real ramifications of noncompliance.  A failure in this regard can result in millions of dollars of direct losses as well as significant collateral damage to the company. Noncompliance may also impact timeline for launching products, even costing companies their first-mover advantage.

At the end of the day, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to address all compliance challenges. Each company needs to determine what is best for them, grounding that decision on factors such as operational size, risk exposure and the type of products they will be introducing into the market.

The good news is that with the proper business structure, a scalable compliance organization, and knowledge of the risk landscape, compliance need not throttle a company’s innovation pipeline. Indeed, compliance protects the company, prevents destructive risk, and can provide competitive advantages.

One Example: ProGlove is a glove/wristband combo for factory workers that electronically captures their movements and alerts them to mistakes, locates missing parts, and automates inventory by scanning the barcodes of the parts they use. The team took their Intel coaches’ advice to spend more time observing factory floors. They learned that workers want their easily-soiled gloves to remain disposable. Designers decided to remove most of the sensors from the glove itself and incorporate them into the new wristband. - This is an excellent example of what is called good Use Case development, get on the ground with would be users, and care about what they care about.
