Success Story: Medical Device - Fresenius
When Fresenius Kabi, the leader in infusion therapy, began planning for a new generation of medical devices, embedded database was identified as an important requirement. Fresenius was looking for robust and reliable data management software supported by a professional company to support their current needs and future application growth. After carefully evaluating a variety of embedded database products worldwide, through careful benchmarking and analysis over long period of time, and considering both the technical and business requirements, Fresenius selected ITTIA DB SQL.
Introducing an innovative device to meet market demand and stay above the competition in a global market is an interesting challenge. Medical device companies recognize the importance of quality and cost when it comes to data and data management. Processes, activities and tasks, in dealing with data management and maintenance, access to the source code, and suitable development test platforms all contribute to these expectations.
Database software is an important component for medical device applications. Balancing the risks – whether they relate to data management, preparing to meet regulatory certifications or improving quality – is a significant challenge. The requirements of a medical device company generally include tailoring specific solutions during various development life cycles and receiving support with the flexibility to make changes before they deploy their applications.
For medical device companies, there is a constant need to balance agility with compliance, focusing on quality in every single task without compromising innovation. All these steps are taken toward a goal of meeting internal approval of pre-market investigation and ensuring readiness for regulations and audits.
