Explore how Quest partners with the MedTech customers to remain innovative and competitive
The healthcare ecosystem is going through multiple transformations and at the same time. Consumerization of healthcare has urged MedTech companies to revisit the traditional definitions of medical devices and healthcare systems. Remote patient care and telehealth are no more in the realm of de novo healthcare paradigms. Standardization and digitization of health data has brought a whole new set of possibilities for managing healthcare. While the traditional market leaders in the MedTech domain are re-defining their new core in the digital health paradigm, niche players are accelerating innovation in automating healthcare.
Quest with 20+ years expertise in MedTech can serve as a partner with unmatched capabilities to upscale in Radiological Imaging, In-Vito Diagnostics and Patient Monitoring.
The Trusted Thinking Partner which provides 2-in-1 advantage to customers
Certifications and process standards: ISO 13485 Certified | IEC 62304 | ISO 14971 | ISO 26262 | ISO 9001 | ISO 27001 | OHSAS 45001 | IEC 62304
The patient data’s growing volume, increasing technological know-how, and demand for fast and effective healthcare processes and systems are driving the demand for HCIT solutions.
It is estimated that the Medical Devices Market Size will be around USS 671.49 billion by 2027.
Al in medical imaging has shown extremely promising clinical applications such as the ability to scan and compare images quickly, crunching data and making predictions that lead to even more accurate diagnosis within lesser time with fewer tests.
When compared to traditional training environments, Augmented and Virtual Reality technology can help large medical device manufacturers with employees around the world to collaborate in real time as they develop the next generation of medical technology.
For fully exploiting the potential of new-age technologies, the push for digitally-enabled care ecosystems to solve healthcare problems will have to find the practical trade-off zones. The industry will leverage the digitally native business experiences and is quite ahead in the curve to ensure confidentiality and personal data protection.

A US based Medical Device leader wanted to launch the next generation of neonatal incubators in the market. Time to launch and limited capacity of the core R&D teams were two challenges Quest helped mitigate. Quest took the ownership of the sensor qualifications (early on the NPD, with many abstract elements) and the module ownership of the User Interface. Then they freed up the client's core R&D team to focus more on the domain/clinical centric aspects of the program, to accelerate the launch.
A Quest IP Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) is a major element in the Digital Healthcare paradigm, acting as assistance and second reader to the Radiologist. It automates and makes the diagnosis workflow productive, enabling faster diagnosis, and also lowers the diagnosis costs. The most important contribution of this is early detection of nodules is that it leading to a higher survival rate. This Quest developed Deep Learning POC has achieved a better accuracy than conventional image processing methods to detect lung nodules. We've achieved a sensitivity of 87% and 93% accuracy.
A North America based customer wanted to enable remote monitoring of vital parameters of ICU patients. This need is more pronounced in ICU care during the current Covid crisis. Integration of multiple clinical parameters and inputs from diverse monitoring systems on a real-time basis is a challenging technical ask. Quest's experience and medical device software capability helped the consumer to accelerate this NPD program.
The need to take multiple X-Rays to get the appropriate image is a problem in radiography. Improving the first time right was a challenge. Quest's expertise in working with imaging systems for over a decade helped to solve this problem by analyzing the cause of a unused exposure (blurry image, poorly positioned patient) and improving the design. The major benefit was on patient safety. First Time Right means less X-ray exposure to both patient and the technicians.
Automating the clinical decision making was a major objective for this North America based med tech customer. Clinical parameters like ECG are complex to interpret and also time critical. Quest was part of the R&D team which developed such ECG systems with inbuilt arrhythmia detection algorithms. This program essentially contributed to the early cardiac arrest predictions, and saved many lives.
This program tested the true mettle of Quest's engineering capability with regard to computational elements. Quest engineers were able to optimize the MRI reconstruction algorithm performance from 2 minutes to 2 seconds. This meant that the patient stays for a much shorter time inside the challenging environment of an MRI gantry.
