Software development: From the idea to the product

PTA’s Life Science division is characterised by intensive synergies between IT and the specialist disciplines of healthcare, medicine, medical technology, chemistry, pharma/diagnostics and IT. In all areas of life science, digitalisation and thus IT competence plays an increasingly important role in the success of a company. Core processes are becoming increasingly networked and automated. In life science in particular, the focus is on people as users or patients. Therefore, in our experience, an essential success factor for digitisation and networking projects is a good understanding of the technical processes. In combination with precise knowledge and a good understanding of IT systems as well as a lot of experience in dealing with complex project frameworks such as diverse stakeholders and extensive regulatory requirements, digitisation projects, medical software products and medical devices will only become successful.

Increases in efficiency and productivity in the operation of testing and diagnostic routine laboratories are only possible if the exact knowledge of the processes can be successfully implemented in software. Companies only become sustainably productive when all aspects of system engineering are competently implemented. This requires a good understanding of the technical framework conditions coupled with experience in implementing all aspects of the product life cycle – from organisation to quality management and product development.

This is why PTA’s special ability to combine high levels of expertise in the specialist discipline and in information technology is particularly evident in the life science sector. We accompany you with great technical understanding and methodological expertise from the idea to the (software) product, help you with competent quality management to develop your software as a medical device or flexibly take over work packages or entire parts of the product life cycle based on our certification according to ISO 13485 or ISO 62304.
We understand your use cases, and our many years of experience in networking the most diverse IT systems in the healthcare sector enable us to develop a solution tailored to your needs and those of your employees, customers and patients.

Our expertise

PTA has successfully completed more than 450 life science projects. Of our more than 430 employees, about 100 not only have a scientific background, but also many years of research experience.
As development partners, our teams of experts take over complete IT development projects or support in project phases over the complete application life cycle (ALM) up to the approval-safe product. We implement quality and risk management according to international standards (ISO 9001, ISO 14971, ISO 13485, IEC 62304, GxP, IVDR, MDR or FDA) and take over the audit-proof or approval-proof documentation of software developments. We support the implementation of IHE/HL7 workflows and the electronic patient file, offer expertise in usability (IEC 62366), requirements engineering, user experience, workflow simulation, virtualisation, etc.

Take the step with us into the digital future.
