The Qt Company and medAcuity come together to accelerate medical device companies’ time-to-market

The Qt Company announced this week a new partnership with MedAcuity, the go-to US-based software development partner for MedTech companies, to help clients accelerate time-to-market for their medical device products. The partnership will leverage MedAcuity’s history of delivering safety-critical software engineering services to the MedTech industry, along with Qt’s highly efficient software development framework.

The medical industry, like many others, has seen tremendous change with the expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the increasing number of embedded medical devices available. As a result, MedTech companies can no longer develop one device at a time; rather, they need to think about how their devices will work together to create an enhanced user experience.

This complexity often requires more time for development due to issues with limited staffing and code that cannot be reused across multiple devices. MedAcuity, together with Qt’s cross development device framework, bridges that gap for MedTech companies.

“With the constantly changing ecosystem of the medical industry, The Qt Company’s software development framework strives to help medical device manufacturers get to market faster than ever before with the safest and most effective medical devices,” said Roger Mazzella, Senior Product Manager for The Qt Company. “Through our partnership with MedAcuity, we are combining industry-leading technology with best-in-class, ISO 13485-certified software development expertise, to deliver a complete MedTech software development framework that is second-to-none.”

“Becoming a Qt partner makes perfect sense based on where the industry’s headed, as well as Qt’s commitment to medical device regulatory standards. This alliance positions our teams to continue deliver optimal project outcomes with even greater engineering efficiency, extensibility, and maintainability for our clients,” said MedAcuity co-founder Dennis Fuccione.

Last month, The Qt Company introduced its Qt Design Studio to optimize collaboration between graphic designers and software developers on user interface (UI) creation. Qt Design Studio allows designers to quickly and easily drag-and-drop UI elements into the same environment developers are using to develop the application logic.

As a result, designers and developers can now work in a single environment for more efficient and cooperative workflows, reducing remarkably time spent on software application projects.

When creating embedded systems, desktop or mobile applications, designers and developers consistently run into common pain points in various areas, including asset and project exchange; testing and validation; and integration and deployment, as well as change request communication for review processes.

Obstacles range from inefficient iterations between design and development environments to waste of non-reusable prototypes and components, in addition to lack of alignment between design style guides and ready-made components and controls. This leads to projects getting lost in translation between designers and developers, causing project teams to spin unnecessary cycles on UI creation and application logic.
