The objective of modern diabetes treatment technologies is to improve diabetics’ lives. Manufacturers of diabetes products utilize digitalization and have introduced so called ‘Closed Loop Diabetics Systems’ (CLDS) in recent years.
Complexity in diabetes treatment has increased significantly. The existing IT architecture of CLDS must be able to integrate new interconnected components enabling the introduction of new services. Additionally, new process partners such as AppStores, developers and testing authorities must be taken into considerations.
Early in May of 2019, the update for a diabetes App failed and endangered thousands of patients. The manufacturer had made methodical and organizational mistakes because critical capabilities for the digital solutions were missing.
In this publication, marenas presents the capability-based transformation approach and how to shape digital diabetes treatment solutions to make future implementations a success.
