KEYNOTE: Transforming the Future of Patient
Care with Human Machine Interfaces (HMI)
Wednesday, February 7 * 9-10 AM
Jennifer Samproni, Chief Technology
Officer, Health Solutions, Flex Ltd.
In this keynote, Samproni will share her
vision for the growing role that human machine
interfaces (HMI) will play in the future
of medical device innovation. With the
human experience becoming inherently
more digital and connected - consumer
devices and applications now manage a wide range of tasks for
users every day - Samproni will focus on how medtech companies
can approach product design to remain competitive.
Beyond utilizing HMI to create innovative medical devices that
meet consumer expectations, she says they should also take a
closer look at how it can transform the future of health and
patient care.
MDB: In the context of medical device innovation, how do you
emphasize the growing role of Human Machine Interfaces (HMI)?
Jennifer Samproni: The human experience - and the way
we interact with products - is evolving. With every passing
year, the human experience becomes more digital and more
connected. This has clearly been the case with consumer devices,
which we increasingly rely on every day to accomplish a
wide range of tasks, from shopping to exercising to maintaining
our homes.
When it comes to maintaining positive health outcomes, it's
important that our medical devices do not lag behind. Today's
consumers have come to expect easy-to-use, connected devices
with data-rich features and appealing, interactive interfaces. At
the same time, wearable devices have led to increased expectations
around wearable, lightweight technology as part of their
fitness and/or health monitoring routines. In this new reality, it
will be critical for device manufacturers to develop devices that
integrate seamlessly into patients' lives.

Beyond ensuring that innovative medical devices meet consumer
expectations and aligns with their current reality, medical
device manufacturers need to take a closer look at human
machine interfaces (HMI) in order to transform the future of
health and patient care. HMI, which gives humans the ability
to operate as controllers for machines, plays an integral role as
the medical technology industry transforms and creates and
delivers innovations that are smarter, more connected to improve
healthcare and patient lives.
MDB: What challenges and opportunities does the increasing
digital and connected nature of the human experience present
for medtech?
JS: Healthcare systems and providers are under more stress
than ever before. The industry is still experiencing aftershocks
from the pandemic and the associated impact on staffing while
at the same time being tasked with the care of an aging population
with increasing rates of chronic disease. When combined
with the emergence of a more digital and connected populace,
it has become clear that there is a desire for more patient-centric
care. In parallel, there is a pressing need to reduce the
stress and burden on overworked healthcare providers.
Recent research has found that between 170 million and 230
million Americans could be living with one or more chronic
conditions by 2030. Connected devices - particularly those
with intuitive designs that integrate seamlessly into our routines
and actions - already play a crucial role in our daily lives
and can help address many of these conditions. From continuous
glucose monitoring systems to wearable vital sign monitors
to sleep support devices, intuitive design and HMI makes these
products easy or even automatic to operate, which makes them
" stickier " with end users. This is an enormous opportunity and
must be a guiding principle when designing medical devices.
They should be designed from concept to production with the
goal of making our lives easier, healthier, and more efficient
without adding more steps or complexity.
To support consumer demand and market trends, healthcare
companies must ensure that at the design phase, HMI,
and the overall user experience is taken into consideration to
ensure more resilient and innovative products. By anticipating
the opportunities and challenges of a more connected, digital
