Project idea: 

Our goal is to improve the effectiveness of medical treatments and patient care while reducing costs. With our partner companies and medical professionals, we work on a project to establish secure connections between portable measuring devices or implants and computers in hospitals via the Internet.

We are one of the first providers to develop a software solution for a secure online connection among an implant and approved human beings, e.g. the patient and the physician. For the first step, the goal is to reduce routine examinations while collecting high-quality, long-term data that are available on-demand. The cloud solution minimizes the risk of data loss. Permanent backups ensure that no data is lost even in the event of a hardware malfunction. Since only encrypted data records are stored and transferred, sensitive data is permanently protected against unauthorized access.

We have always developed new ideas based on what we have achieved so far. Especially in the medical area, there are many opportunities for us.

We have our next steps in mind but if you have ideas, be sure that they will be heard!

 

Offer Requirements

The last years, we have invested more and more into the development of software solutions for the medical sector. As we always want to offer the most user-friendly solution, we are looking for an applicant with a strong medical background and knowledge. Strong communication skills in English are highly appreciated as you will be in charge of identifying the needs of the medical personnel as well as the patient and explaining them to our programmers. You will be working hand-in-hand with all relevant partner companies to ensure that all hardware and software components are ideally adjusted.

You will be one of the main contact persons for the relevant regulatory authorities. Therefore, you should have knowledge of the requirements of the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR).

Additionally, the implementation and documentation of our Quality Management measures will be part of your responsibilities.
