In this interview, Dr Despa and Mr McClure discuss BD’s approach to connecting devices in its portfolio to meet patient, pharma and other stakeholder requirements. Their discussion focuses in particular on safety and security, highlighting the connected wearable injector, BD Libertas™ with Smart Option, as an example.
Bjarne Sørensen and John A. Merhige explore the latest developments in modular autoinjector platforms and the benefits for end users and pharmaceutical customers. They also discuss the two companies’ recent partnership for the development of a combined system that capitalises on important synergies between two compatible technologies.
Whilst there is much discussion on how to apply connectivity and smart devices to therapies, there is far less dialogue concerning the challenges inherent to the digital architecture needed to make such innovations work in practice. Andreas Schneider introduces YDS SmartServices™, Ypsomed’s digital turnkey solution to effectively embed smart devices in a broader digital ecosystem.
