Are accessory projects consuming your team’s bandwidth leading to inefficiency and higher development costs? Or is a standalone development project outside your team’s field of expertise causing delays to product launch? That is what a Nortech client was experiencing when developing a new system for patient monitoring in a hospital setting.
Innovation For Medical Technology
Our client, a leading global medical technology company, was in the process of developing an innovative patient monitoring system. This state-of-the-art system allows medical professionals to monitor patient’s vitals using compact wearable devices. By doing so, patients gain the freedom to move around the hospital ward instead of being confined to a bed due to larger, more invasive monitoring systems. Recognizing the need for an accessory to this system, our client approached us.
The purpose of this accessory was to notify medical staff when a patient’s vital signs approached a critical threshold that required immediate attention. This alarm box would utilize both audible and visual cues to alert the nurse’s stations of any critical changes in the patient’s condition. The client’s team primarily consisted of software specialists, with limited experience in hardware development. In-house development of this accessory would have required a substantial amount of team resources that our client was not able to spare. The added complexity and reduced efficiency would have led to substantial and costly setbacks, that would further delay time to market. They quickly realized the need for a strategic partner who could offer them a full-service solution to these issues.
