What are connected medical devices ?
A connected medical device (CMD) is a device that incorporates digital technologies to collect, analyze and transmit medical data to healthcare professionals. CMDs can take many forms, ranging from wearables like connected watches to sophisticated medical equipment such as scanners or implantable sensors. They offer new benefits for health management, such as early detection of health problems, better management of chronic diseases, and improved quality of life for patients.
What is the average duration of diagnostic errancy for a rare disease ?
The average diagnostic time for a rare disease can be significantly longer than for common diseases. According to a study by Eurordis, a European organization for rare diseases, the average time for diagnosing rare diseases for patients is about five years. However, it is essential to note that the time of diagnostic wandering can vary considerably from patient to patient depending on the complexity of the disease, the availability of appropriate diagnostic tests, access to health care, and other factors. These diseases are often difficult to diagnose due to their rarity and range of symptoms.
