If one has to point at one sector as truly pioneering in new and complex technologies, techniques and services, it must be sector of life sciences, medical products and healthcare. Life changing (if not lifesaving) innovations are announced at an astonishing pace. Many of these innovations thrive on extensive use of the available data, generated by connected sensors, devices and applications.
Yet, the use of sensors, devices and data in the medical and healthcare sector is heavily regulated. Considering the societal and individual impact of the products and services as well as the information and data processed, regulators’ rigour in this area can easily be understood. However, solid legal protection should not stifle innovation, it should encourage and foster it. Indeed, who knows how many lives the next innovation will save?
