Medical Devices Reach for the Cloud: Building a Scalable and Adaptable Software Platform for Connected Healthcare Devices
The medical industry is under siege to reduce costs. Medical equipment manufacturers are rapidly designing in connectivity capabilities that will mirror enterprise cloud computing and introduce more efficient ways to provide healthcare services. However, designing connected medical devices brings design challenges, complexities, and risk. Developers are tasked with building products that utilize the latest technological advances with multicore and embedded virtualization while also meeting strict business and regulatory requirements. And, with cost in mind, software platforms must scale and easily adapt to meet the changing needs of the healthcare industry.
In this complimentary web seminar, Pete MacKay, Wind River's medical and industrial solutions architect, explores the critical design considerations including:
- The evolving connected medical device landscape
- Separating applications from system software
- Understanding and leveraging embedded virtualization for different use cases
- Increasing performance while lowering power and cost with multi-core technologies
Who should attend:
- Medical device software and system architects
- Engineering manager
- Product managers
- Decision makers
