Changing regulatory requirements, combined with increasing content volumes and channels, and antiquated processes have sharply increased costs and risks for medical device manufacturers. Estimates put the industry’s total “cost of content” at over $3 Billion world-wide—not including the costs of compliance risk.
Now, solutions built on structured content and process automation technologies are delivering a 30-40% cost and turnaround reduction (and 50% reduction in risk) for manufacturers such as GE Healthcare and Stryker.
Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a discussion with Marc Miller of Transperfect Medical Device Solutions, about where content costs and risks may be hiding in your medical device content production process. Marc will discuss the technologies that can help you manage the challenges, and he will talk briefly about the strategies you’ll need to employ in order to take advantage of the next wave of content technology innovation.

Cyber attacks are on the rise and becoming more dangerous impacting the safety of smart cities, smart homes and the Industrial IoT. Stuxnet, Black Energy, Mirai, Brickerbot and Wannacry cyber incidents have used a variety of vectors of attack on IoT and industrial control systems made possible by vulnerable devices and a lack of strong cybersecurity controls. Hackers are not just interested in stealing data; they want control and can significantly impact the safety and reliability of systems that affects the risk profile of a company.
Join this webinar to learn about the:
- Details of the systems and software that were compromised in recent cyber attacks
- Common vectors of cyber attack on IoT and industrial control systems
- How to defend against cyber attacks by leveraging embedded security controls in IoT and ICS devices
- How create a chain of trust workflow to harden devices and ensure secure communications.

For the most part, human beings don't like change. It’s scary. It's stressful. And it can be difficult. Adapting to a new way of producing medical device content is no different. To succeed, we must educate stakeholders about the need for intelligent content and explain the benefits. And, we must help everyone involved in the content production lifecycle understand the changes required, the problems they solve, and the benefits they will provide both the company and its content creators and managers.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and Ann Rockley, content strategy expert and president of The Rockley Group, for this free, one-hour webinar. You'll learn how leading medical device manufacturers tackle big changes to content production methods and you'll discover change-management best practices you can put in place in your organization.
In our final class, we will look at the “Things” of the IoT – our nodes and devices – and how we can effectively commission, monitor, and detect problems in them throughout their lifecycle. We will look at methods for adding device management capabilities in our devices from the design stage as well as ways to add these capabilities in the legacy devices we looked at in the previous class. One topic we will look at is effective commissioning and decommissioning of devices in the network – how can we add or remove a node from the network without adversely impacting the rest of the network? Another area we will look at is security assurance and testing: how can we be sure of the device security – and how can we test it? And lastly we will look at maintenance. What methods can we use for testing devices or paths within the network and how can we effectively and safely perform system updates? To conclude our class, we will review our checklist and see what other issues we may need to be aware of in our IoT design. Day 3 sponsored by Wind RiverRead more >
