Medical Device Software in the Cloud

It is forecasted that the global market for cloud based medical device software will reach £3.3 billion by 2024, compared to £1.5 billion in 2018. This growth is primarily driven by an increase in wearable hardware, along with the desire to reduce overheads associated with processing test results.

Cloud solutions offer companies access to the latest hardware and software at very little cost and effort. Furthermore, despite common misconceptions, cloud-based solutions offer better data security and data encryption as providers are constantly upgrading their systems. It can be difficult for smaller companies hosting their own services to manage this process.

To help transition their products and services onto the cloud, many businesses turn to software development companies such as OCC. Businesses may have the ability to code the functions that define their own IP, but not the specialised code required for each cloud host. Utilising OCC’s expertise in developing cloud based medical devices, making a switch can be both time and cost-effective.

Monitoring Care Using the ContrOCC Visits Module

Our Visits module enables providers with electronic call monitoring systems (ECMS) to submit their care data directly to ContrOCC and better monitor carer visits to clients. The visit data is automatically assigned to the most appropriate care package and is used to make payments to providers and to charge clients.

We spoke to William Whittingham, from the Liverpool City Council Adult Services Team about the council’s experience of using the Visits module, which was implemented a few years ago.

The Story of TraCer

The Story of TraCer OCC has played a key role in an innovative project to use artificial intelligence to accurately date pregnancies in countries where larger scale ultrasound scanning equipment is unavailable. TraCer is a small ultrasound device that has been combined with a tablet and probe. Software on the tablet makes it simple for a non-expert to carry out pregnancy scans. OCC played a key role in ensuring that the user interface was as straightforward as possible.

How a UX Design Review Can Boost Online Products

As businesses overwhelmingly move products and services online, the digital marketplace is more competitive than ever. Combining aesthetically pleasing website design with a clear and functional web interface is important for businesses in the digital sphere. Interfaces should provide a seamless and smooth user experience for the end-user. As with any product, software must be regularly updated, and changing customer requirements will necessitate the introduction of new or improved product features.
