DTx and RTEmd Form Strategic Alliance Aimed at the Medical Device OEM Market

ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DTx Inc. and RTEmd announce the formation of a strategic alliance to complement their capabilities as market leaders and innovators. The companies have joined forces to provide a fully integrated embedded computing solution for medical equipment manufacturers. This relationship will provide clients the best tailored solutions to improve their time to market with compliant hardware and application software solutions.

“Our alliance relationship with RTEmd gives DTx a broader technical footprint and permits us to offer an even higher value solution to our customers”

Reducing Project Risk and Lowering Cost

The alliance partners leverage past project experience and proven methods to provide quick, well-tested solutions at competitive prices. DTx and RTEmd combine many years of experience meeting the exacting requirements of the medical equipment industry. Their ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certified quality systems ensure the work product includes comprehensive documentation to achieve regulatory compliance. The alliance provides OEMs with a single point of contact to deliver fully integrated hardware and software solutions that are tested and documented.

Collaboration is Key

DTx and RTEmd have forged a strong relationship at all levels of their organizations including design and new product development, verification and validation, sustaining engineering and supply chain management. This collaboration enhances their delivery capability, and includes creating centers of excellence as well as developing joint solutions. They continually explore new trends and emerging technologies in order to create the next wave of cutting-edge information management technologies and solutions.

New Service Offering

The alliance’s new Legacy Product Audit is designed to help medical device manufacturers discover and capture untapped revenue opportunities in their existing product offerings. In a Legacy Product Audit our senior technical staffs assess an existing product platform to identify specific opportunities for improvement. The partners help clients determine which opportunities offer the greatest return on investment. They then create product requirements to capture these opportunities.

The audit can define hardware/software solutions to:

  • Component obsolescence
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Serviceability and problems reported in the field
  • Marketing or customer requests for new features and capabilities
  • Expansion of the product for new markets

Addressing these issues through integrated hardware and software enhancements can provide a quick return on investment through new revenue and cost savings from current products. Our team will carry your enhancement project from requirements definition through design, implementation, integration, verification testing and documentation.

Delivering the Right Solutions

DTx's vast experience with a wide range of embedded technologies ensures that their solutions support their client’s technology strategies and work well with the existing components of their hardware and software infrastructures. Because DTx is vendor-neutral, DTx selects the optimal components to build the solution that meets the client's needs.

RTEmd's expertise in custom software development with particular strengths in architecture, systems engineering, and verification and validation ensures that the software does what it was designed to do and that it reliably protects the safety of operators and patients alike.

Knowing the Medical Device OEM Market

The alliance’s objective stance and extensive industry and technology experience means the partners can help their clients select the right solution for their business needs. It simplifies vendor identification, evaluation and selection, reducing time and expense from the very start. Once a project is underway, DTx and RTEmd provide the unique skills and resources of the alliance, including escalation directly to C-level executives of the partners, ensuring that all clients get the very best service and solutions.

The Value of Alliance Relationships

Art Schmitt, President of DTx sees the value this alliance can deliver. "Our alliance relationship with RTEmd gives DTx a broader technical footprint and permits us to offer an even higher value solution to our customers," says Schmitt. "Our goal is to develop strong relationships with best in class partners that result in significant benefits for our clients and for DTx. The RTEmd relationship is a key part of our effort to provide a more comprehensive service offering to our customers. Together we will deliver market-leading design, sustaining engineering, and manufacturing capabilities, all of which drive our business development efforts."

According to RTEmd President, Bob Ruppenthal, “The alliance with DTx extends our geographic reach and enables us to provide an integrated hardware and software solution for our clients.” He views DTx’s proven expertise in hardware design, logistics and manufacturing as an ideal complement to RTEmd’s software skills. ”Increasingly, clients are seeking to engage vendors who can provide complete solutions, and our alliance with DTx gives us that capability.”
