 How the Medical Devices Industry Is Handling the Technological Evolution  

In light of the growing digital era, technology has become a pivotal element of every workplace, both big and small. With the use of technology comes the delegation of repetitive tasks, leaving more time for human creativity and innovation. Robots and algorithm-powered systems are no longer the stuff of sci-fi movies, as they replace the human workforce. 

From a managerial aspect, employers can utilize technology to monitor employee performance, handle daily operations paper-free, and course-correct on any noticeable inefficiencies. Staff can even be logged into MES and ERP systems for self-evaluation purposes, inevitably leading to further productivity and increased workplace organization. 

In regards to the healthcare industry, it has embraced technology aggressively, by integrating healthcare-related features into everyday wearable accessories, such as the Apple Watch. A well-known audio company has also made it a point to include the hearing disabled population by designing apparatuses tailored to their abilities. 

Every day, the borders of modern medical practices are being stretched outwards to encompass marginalized health populations and discover novel, innovative methods of treatment.

 What Are the Norms of Good Manufacturing Practices? 

When it comes to the healthcare industry, it is crucial that manufacturers comply with a standardized production system to ensure a consistent level of quality and, above all, consumer safety. This is what is known as current good manufacturing practice, or cGMP. Not all medical device manufacturers follow this system, leaving it up to you to research trusted companies that abide by these practices. ETG is undoubtedly one of these select few. 

GMP ultimately aims to enhance overall quality and reduce the number of dysfunctional, unsafe devices on the market. The latter is a huge waste of financial resources, but more importantly, a public safety hazard. Ergo, anything less than the promised quality is a severance of public trust in the healthcare manufacturing industry. 

Such low standards of performance definitely do not go unpunished: any company gambling with public safety is subject to hefty fines and severe legal action when taking such undesirable risks at the expense of consumer wellbeing. ETG strictly abides by CGMP to ensure not only your medical device’s quality but also its timely delivery to the market. 

Our clients gain peace of mind knowing that we have quality checkpoints at every step of our operations, in addition to rigorous inspection and product testing.
