There are many players in the healthcare market but we would like to think that we have something that makes us unique: our ambition to deliver real world solutions based on the complete picture. A product must be designed with the right technology but equally important it must be developed for the clinical environment with the end user in focus.
This, we are proud and confident to state, is the mark of our craftsmanship.
The Complete Picture
To develop successful healthcare products, taking into account the complete picture, is an art. An art where engineering excellence, the ability to be at the forefront of research, but most importantly, to listen to the end users must be combined.
- The Engineering
We know software, from firmware to web-based client-server solutions. We know hardware, developing front end biomedical amplifiers, connecting it wirelessly or integrating it to a PDA platform. Connecting to even the most complex databases, electronic healthcare records or hospital information systems is just a matter of using our existing expertise.
- The Research Involvement
Besides our extensive network of researchers we are staying at the forefront of the current research by being frequently involved in the European Community research projects. It is giving us both the necessary know how but also important new contacts to researchers around the world.
- The Clinical Presence
We have always believed that knowledge about the clinical environment is the key to developing successful products. We are frequently in contact with the clinicians during product development and validation but we are always trying to find new ways to increase our clinical knowledge. For instance all Judex developers are regularly stationed at different hospital clinics around the world to learn about the clinical needs and requirements. The complete picture is what we are aiming for.
In the Real World
Over 30 years of experience in developing healthcare products, and a numerous number of product launches, have taught us to produce functional solutions. There are an infinite number of considerations to take into account when developing solutions for the real world, below are a few examples of the guidelines guiding all of Judex solutions.
- Ease of Use
I f it is not easy to use do not bother to develop it, it will not be used anyway. The way the functionality is presented to the user, the user interface, is extremely important and we have spent vast amount of resources to develop a proven clinical user interface that works optimally in the clinical environment.
- Do not make it perfect
Do not strive for perfect solutions at first go - make it good enough and get it out into the clinical reality as soon as possible. With the clinical feedback a better product can then be developed in a much shorter time.
- Adjustable not Flexible
Flexibility comes inevitable with an increased complexity that very few users will benefit from but that all users will suffer from. Instead make the solution adjustable so that it can easily be adjusted to a specific need or requirement without forcing the user to consider all the possible options.
- Users do not want change
End users are rarely happy to be forced to deviate from their existing routines. It must be made worthwhile, the benefits should by far make up for the effort of learning new ways. For this all benefits must be stressed, well presented and made easily accessible.
Solutions for the real world.
