The International Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) defines innovation as the implementation of a completely new or substantially improved product (good or service). The World Health Organization indicates that the purpose of health innovation is to develop and deliver new or improved health policies, systems, products, technologies, and services and delivery methods that will improve human health. Certainly both definitions are correct, so let’s think about what this means in practice.
There are two basic types of innovation: medical and service-related.
Key to the development of healthcare is innovations resulting from the progress of medical knowledge, which is the source of achievements of the pharmaceutical industry, biomedical engineering or information and communication technologies. Strictly medical innovations refer to diagnostic or research technologies, therapeutic, rehabilitation and prophylactic technologies, and concern drugs, equipment and procedures. Effective and safe innovative drugs can slow down the progression of a disease, prevent its occurrence or lead to a complete cure. In recent decades, thanks to modern therapies, many fatal diseases have become chronic, and incurable diseases have been cured. Today, in almost 100% of hepatitis C patients it is possible to exclude HCV, patients with HIV do not die within a few years due to AIDS.
The second type of innovation is related to the providing of health services, the organization and functioning of the health care system and other entities operating in the environment of this system.
One of the most important and noticeable medical advances for most people is the discovery of a vaccine for COVID-19 so quickly. The vaccine was developed only a year after the first infections occurred and not just by one pharmaceutical concern. Of course, mRNA vaccines are easier to make and the basis for the vaccine has already been established (the coronavirus protein is the same as in the SARS epidemic in 2002). The time from production to release has been shortened due to an exceptional situation.
In addition, the quick introduction of online consultations with specialists can be considered as a rapid innovation in the organization of the health system. Doctors can not only talk to patients, but also issue prescriptions without leaving home. It is also worth to mention mobile applications that integrate data from laboratories and sanitary departments with our personal data. Thanks to these applications we are aware if we were near a sick person, there is also information if we are sick (if we made a test).
As you can see, innovations are significant advances in medicine. Thanks to them life becomes easier and life expectancy extends. But now what do we do to help as Logic Chemie?
As Logic Chemie we support innovation and innovative products that build consumer awareness. For many years we have been active on the hygiene market. We continually ensure that our products are unique. Our products are highly effective. Thanks to the fact that during the production process we use only natural substances, our products do not cause any harm to your skin and your environment. We have proven that products with 0% alcohol can also be effective against dangerous bacteria and viruses. It kills 99,99% of them. In addition, high alcohol-based liquids can dry out the skin on your hands. In addition, Logic Develop (as part of Logic Chemie) has created a new No-Touch hand sanitizer machine. It is definitely an innovative device, a first on the market. The device provides contactless hand disinfection, temperature measurement and user meter. There is also a screen built into the machine, which can be used to display regular interesting advertisements. In addition, our team has created a special application that is designed to facilitate the management of the device. With our machine you can ensure pleasant, simple and fast hand disinfection.
