The medical device sector is constantly evolving in terms of disease discovery, patient care and delivery. Cloud enterprise resource planning (Cloud ERP) can help medical device companies in various ways, including simplified access to patient records, secure virtual storage, improved efficiency, and support of artificial intelligence-based solutions.

Advantages of Cloud ERP for medical device companies
Cloud ERP has multiple benefits for medical device companies, some of which are listed below.
Medical device recalls are mainly caused by defective software or parts, which can pose a risk to patients. Cloud technology can identify devices that may need to be recalled and reduce the risk to patients’ health.
Personal information from implantable wearables such as pacemakers is increasingly at risk from cyberattacks. Cybersecurity, therefore, becomes paramount as the data from the medical devices is highly private in nature that is used to support the health of vulnerable people.
Cloud computing includes policies and procedures that protect the data from medical devices apart from the infrastructure and cloud-based systems. The technology uses encryption to store data, which can only be viewed by authenticated users. Furthermore, cloud firewalls are used to prevent unauthorised access to private networks.
Design and development
Cloud computing technology can help in improving patient outcomes by analysing patient data that can be used to design and develop new medical devices. The large amount of patient data produced by medical devices is stored securely and can be backed up and recovered in case of failure using cloud computing.
Cloud computing can be used along with robotics in the design and development of electric wheelchairs. The technology can be used to record, store and analyse wheelchair manoeuvring data collected by accelerometers and gyroscopes. The analysed data can be useful for incorporating robotic capabilities in wheelchairs and transfer devices that help in moving people from the bed to the shower or another chair.
