Transparency Market Research Report Added "Medical Device Connectivity Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2013 - 2019"


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/10/2017 -- Medical device connectivity (MDC) is used to remotely control, configure and monitor patient's administration data such as dose, rate, timing etc., physiological data and other key information. This helps healthcare providers provide best possible care to their patients. MDC not only enhances clinical analytics capabilities and decision support but also creates accurate and complete picture of patients' conditions. This leads to improved care processes and patient outcomes.

Medical devices can be connected on wired or wireless networks. Wired networks are easily configured, fast and stable. Wireless network technologies including bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and wireless medical telemetry service, provide ubiquitous connectivity and coverage and allow uninterrupted patient monitoring. Wired networks have high initial installation and maintenance cost.
