The Internet of Things (IoT) is a tech area rich with potential. The ability to connect devices via cloud computing and allow them to collect data via sensors provides new worlds of efficiency for many industries, but the Healthcare industry, in particular, has the potential to benefit the most from the increased productivity offered by the IoT, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now that we are well and truly into the new year we thought that we would take a moment to look back at some of our top posts specific to the translation of clinical trials.
Localization is a vast and, at times, complex process for any company and this selection of posts reflects that in its diversity.
To keep it simple we picked just 5 articles that you all found the most interesting and insightful.
Read our most popular blogs on medical devices and learn all you need to know about translation and localization of medical devices, medical software and IFUs.
No matter what type of medical device your company designs, manufactures, distributes, or markets, that device must comply with all regulatory controls and adhere to all the legal requirements set forth by your country’s governing body. This is critical to ensure the safety and efficacy of the licensed product before it hits the market and is in the homes, hospitals, and hands of its intended end-users.
The health sector is increasingly embracing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to boost patient care and improve the health care process. AI tools help caregivers make informed decisions, medical centers attain better outcomes, and patients receive personalized and timelier care. AI applications are evident in various core areas ranging from smart devices to diagnostics as well as health and wellness. Here is how AI plays a role in medical diagnostics and how machine translation can help reach patients in their own language.
Global clinical trials that involve a number of countries and languages, or populations whose primary language is not the official language of the country, are a reality of the current world-wide situation. Clinical trials companies or contract research organizations researching and testing anything related to the COVID-19 pandemic, should be looking for a translation service provider that can offer speed, accuracy and affordability.
The regulation of the medical device industry throughout Europe has gone essentially unchanged since the 1990s, so a reform was overdue and necessary in order to improve the standards, protocols, and processes in the design and manufacture of medical devices in Europe. If you sell medical devices in Europe you will need to comply with the EU MDR.
Medical technology (MedTech) is any technology that it is used to save lives . It can take the form of diagnosing, monitoring or treating any disease or condition. In particular, MedTech has brought a new dynamic to the healthcare industry and has drastically changed the way doctors, patients, and regulators operate.
People often ask me, "Is it important that translators have a medical background to translate life science content?" I always answer with a resounding, "Yes!" No content requires more specialization than medical. It is often insufficient to have only a "medical" background, but necessary to have more in-depth knowledge of cardiovascular, orthopedics, pharmaceuticals, or another specialty.
While the knowledge of specialized terminology is vital for translation success, its overuse is one of the greatest pitfalls for patient communications.
The Medical Technology, Pharma and Life Sciences industries are significant contributors to any economy of the world. They generate billions of dollars and employ thousands of people. With healthcare becoming increasingly globalized, the need for quality medical translation services in these industries is more critical than ever. Demand for these services are especially essential, particularly in the areas of regulatory approvals, medical devices, and clinical trials.
