A cost-conscious healthcare system is increasingly driving toward value, creating both a challenge and an opportunity for medtech. There is a big difference, though, between what is an intuitively good idea in a care setting and what will actually resonate with hospital systems.

Influential designer Aidan Petrie, who was a recent presenter at DeviceTalks Minnesota, discusses the complexities of creating products that create value both at the moment of care and throughout the whole healthcare system. The Ximedica co-founder and chief technology officer, emeritus, explores some of the key ideas in creating value-based connected health, including:

  • Identifying opportunities to reduce waste generated in healthcare;
  • Getting to the top of a hospital’s or payer’s priority list;
  • Breaking out of a “develop a device” only mentality;
  • Tips for getting into an integration and holistic thinking mindset.
