Wirelessly Enabled Injection Devices Keep Patients Connected to Caregivers as Home Healthcare Expands

Press release from: Greystone Research Associates

(Amherst, NH) – As the number of patients who self-administer injectable drugs continues to grow, adherence to drug therapy and disease management protocols have become a primary concern within the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. For chronic conditions adherence has a direct effect on the patient’s quality-of-life. Efforts to enhance adherence have a non-negligible effect on drug formulations and delivery decisions, and are a significant factor in the prescribing decisions of many physicians.

As the industry debates ways to adapt to these and similar issues that are associated with patient self-medication, wirelessly enabled devices – drug injection devices that are designed to address the patient adherence issue by issuing reminders and recording data about patient dosing activity and making it available to healthcare providers (HCPs) – are gaining interest among industry and managed care participants.

The wirelessly enabled device ecosystem includes a number of layers including OEM device suppliers, drug developers, human factors consultants and aftermarket third-party devices. Much of the current activity surrounding wirelessly enabled drug injection devices is focused on chronic diseases – conditions where the ability of caregivers to access data on patient self-administration activities, patient reported outcomes, and feedback on the user experience can yield significant benefits in patient wellbeing.

The majority of the current generation of wirelessly enabled injection devices rely on one of two wireless standards. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), a variation of Bluetooth technology, is used to offload data from the injection device, usually to a nearby wireless electronic device such as a Smartphone, for further relay to a central location where the information can be accessed by the user’s caregiver. Near field communication (NFC) is a very low energy, short distance wireless technology that has gained considerable attention as an alternative to BLE. For NFC to work effectively, the injector must be within close proximity to the receiving station or relay device. The leading developer of NFC applications, Thin Film Electronics, has developed a platform branded NFC OpenSense. This technology is being used in Ypsomed’s YpsoMate wirelessly enabled autoinjector.

Wirelessly enabled injection devices are detailed in a new and comprehensive report researched and written by Greystone Research Associates. Wirelessly Enabled Injection Devices to 2022 analyzes the market for injection devices that are designed to transmit data and information via one or more wireless technologies. The report includes analysis of enabling wireless technologies, marketed and development-stage devices, demand drivers, development factors, market considerations, and strategic and economic factors, and provides profiles of market sector participants.
