Consumers are now more proactive and educated in taking charge of their personal health and are constantly seeking latest technology in remedy application. This can be seen by increasing numbers of patients who are actively involved with their healthcare providers in the decision-making process and are very accustomed to asking for the latest device. What is the impact of this rising consumerism in medical device manufacturing? Answer is devices and diagnostics should be more user-friendly.
Devices that are found too complex, too cumbersome or too poorly designed for everyday use will not perform as well as they did in the market several years ago. In light of these changes, device companies should implement infrastructures that require constant feedback throughout the product lifecycle. They should also adapt fairly quickly in order to meet current and future regulations. A device company should look at solutions to free up their resources in order to concentrate on product development and post-market research. The manufacturing process is intensive in both human resources and capital. It involves conforming to industrial standards, attaining the proper certifications and maintaining facilities. Not to mention locating the complicated web of parts suppliers for product assembly. Increasing concerns like coping with environmental regulations are part of the picture as well. All of this takes capital away. A good contract manufacturing service should be the expert at manufacturing the product, freeing up the resources for a device company to adapt quickly and effectively to fast changing consumer trends.
As device companies continue to focus on enhanced technologies and cost efficiencies, the trend to directly adapt to consumer should assign a new task for them to find qualified manufacturing solutions to succeed in a highly competitive global market.
