Connected Medical Devices & the Cloud: Delivering Validated States, Safety & Compliance on

Continually-evolving 3rd Party Platforms

The tremendous growth of public cloud computing platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Salesforce Platform and Google Cloud has been driven by a wide variety of benefits related to reliability, performance, scalability, security, convenience, cost, and functionality.  Seeking to capture these benefits, more and more medical device companies are placing key components of medical device software and functionality on public cloud computing platforms.  

While the cloud offers high value for medical device manufacturers and device users, it also creates new challenges.  Use of the cloud entails a tradeoff between realizing the benefits and losing some degree of control over the underlying technology.  Although regular cloud component updates from Amazon, Microsoft, Salesforce, Google, and others can help keep their platforms safe and reliable, constantly changing computing environments pose a new class of challenge to traditional approaches to the idea of a validated state that ensure safety and compliance.  

In this webinar, a group of industry leaders and pioneers in the use of medical devices in the cloud will outline these challenges in more detail, and share an emerging set of best practices that address these challenges so that medical devices can harness the full benefits of cloud computing.  They will be sharing insights from their experiences in developing and launching cloud-based medical device functionality, as well as interviews they have conducted with numerous industry leaders and pioneers.

The content they will present is a “sneak preview” of recommendations they are submitting to AAMI for a Consensus Report that will provide the first-ever written industry guidance on this important topic.
