Digitalization of health: future-proof systems

The Life Science division of PTA IT Consulting is characterized by intensive synergies between IT and the specialist disciplines of healthcare, medicine, medical technology, chemistry, pharmaceuticals and diagnostics. The digitalization of healthcare is playing an ever greater role in all of these areas by increasingly networking and automating core processes. The focus is always on people as users or patients. In our experience, a key success factor for digitalization and networking projects in the healthcare industry is a deep understanding of the technical processes. In combination with sound IT expertise and many years of experience in dealing with complex project framework conditions, such as diverse stakeholders and extensive regulatory requirements, digitalization projects, medical software products and medical devices can be successfully implemented.

The ongoing digitalization of the healthcare system therefore requires not only technological expertise, but also a holistic understanding of the specific challenges and processes in this sector. This is the only way to fully exploit the potential of digitalization and develop sustainable solutions that meet the needs of patients, users and companies.

Tailor-made solutions for the digitalization of the healthcare industry

digitization in the healthcare sector
opens up enormous potential for increasing efficiency and productivity in testing and routine diagnostic laboratories. In order to fully exploit this potential, precise knowledge of the processes and their successful implementation in software is essential. Companies only become sustainably productive when all aspects of system engineering are competently implemented. This requires an in-depth understanding of the technical framework, coupled with extensive experience in implementing all aspects of the product life cycle – from organization to quality management and product development.

The PTA is characterized by its special ability to combine a high level of expertise in the specialist discipline and in information technology. This strength is particularly evident in the areas of health and digitalization. We accompany you from the idea to the (software) product with great technical understanding and methodical expertise. Our expert quality management supports you in developing your software as a medical device. In addition, we flexibly take on work packages or entire parts of the product life cycle based on our ISO 13485 or ISO 62304 certification.

Thanks to our many years of experience in networking a wide range of IT systems in the healthcare sector, we are able to develop customized solutions that are tailored to your specific needs and those of your employees, customers and patients. We understand your use cases and apply our knowledge in a targeted manner to drive digitalization in the field of healthcare and make your company fit for the future.


In future, interdisciplinary and cross-thematic communication between service providers and cost bearers will be largely digital.
