Improving patient outcomes with advanced digital biomarkers
In this article, Matthew Sarkar, Vice-President Medical, and Imantha Samaranayake, Electronics, Software and Systems Consultant, consider the contribution digital biomarker devices make towards healthcare and the challenges faced by the evolution of such devices.
Digital biomarker devices could bring about a new age of intelligent, personalised treatments and care plans that significantly improve healthcare effectiveness and cost-efficiency. However, to make a meaningful difference to patient experiences and outcomes, they need to do more than simply monitor an individual’s condition. They also need to analyse and leverage biomarker data to generate actionable insights that can inform decisions as patients progress along treatment plans.
