From navigating the complex regulatory environment to implementing the right quality controls — MedTech companies face many challenges in getting their products to market. These challenges lengthen product development cycles and increase the time it takes to get vital technologies to the patients who need them.
For many MedTech organizations, Clinical Research Organizations (CROs) are indispensable partners in solving these challenges. CROs specialize in managing different product development stages, such as medical testing or running clinical trials. Their expertise is key to accelerating timelines and getting better products to market.
But dealing with multiple specialist partners can be tricky. Not only does it increase project complexity but specialists often have a poor understanding of the full MedTech product journey. As decisions made at one stage of the cycle will impact all other stages, this lack of knowledge can lead to costly choices that delay project timelines.

As the leading MedTech service provider with the largest global team of regulatory and quality experts, we offer a premier, single global platform for our clients — with support that extends from concept to commercialization. Our service offerings are organized into four business solutions: Regulatory and Quality Consulting, Reimbursement Services, Clinical Trials Services, and Laboratory Services.
Let’s explore how each solution can more quickly get your MedTech product to market.
Regulatory and Quality Consulting: navigating the complex regulatory landscape
The ever-evolving regulatory landscape can significantly slow down product development and market entry. This is especially true for those operating in multiple markets. The EU, for instance, will have different regulatory requirements than the US market.
In an environment where compliance is not an option but a necessity, MedTech companies often struggle with keeping up-to-date on ever-changing regulations, let alone strategizing for long-term success.
Our specialized team comprises former regulatory body experts, known for their unparalleled expertise and influential presence in regulatory circles. They will work with you to determine the right plan of action for a successful go-to-market strategy.
Our strategies and expert guidance are tailored to your unique business needs. Whether it's strategizing for long-term market success or streamlining clinical trial execution, RQM+ helps you accelerate your regulatory compliance timelines.
Reimbursement Services: securing payment and market adoption
Breaking through the MedTech market is difficult enough; securing reimbursement for your innovations presents an additional set of hurdles that impact speed-to-market. Without effective reimbursement strategies, even the most promising medical technologies can struggle to gain traction.
Our Reimbursement Services are designed to maximize market access and revenue potential. We will help you determine the best reimbursement system for your product while guaranteeing regulatory compliance. This includes securing proper coding, appropriate insurance coverage, and determining the most lucrative and reliable payment structure.
Clinical Trials: efficient, high-quality trials for faster approval
Performing clinical trials can be one of the most time-consuming phases in MedTech product development. The difficulties here extend past regulatory concerns to include data collection and analysis challenges.
RQM+ Clinical Trials services provide efficient study design and management aimed at generating high-quality, accurate, clean, and validated data on product safety and effectiveness. Our services employ agile execution strategies and digital solutions that streamline information sharing. That means that you can quickly and easily interpret clinical results.
Every Clinical Evaluation Plan we create balances regulatory, clinical, and business risks and objectives. We are uniquely positioned to help you create a strategy for presenting clinical evidence and analysis. With insights into what notified bodies are expecting, RQM+ prepares both your team and documentation to meet these stringent standards.
Laboratory Services: ensuring the safety and efficacy of your products
Lab testing is a critical component that can't be rushed or compromised, yet it is often a bottleneck in the product development process.
Our Lab Services team is led by Ph.D. analytical chemists who employ state-of-the-art technologies and a multi-detector approach to accurately characterize MedTech materials. We don't just meet regulatory requirements; we aim to exceed them. Our comprehensive testing, analysis, and validation services support regulatory compliance while minimizing delays in product development. This minimizes risk to both end users and your company, thereby protecting your brand and reputation for the long haul.
We’re also set apart by our track record of solving complex issues where other providers fall short. The factors position RQM+ as a trusted partner for fast, reliable, and above all, quality-assured lab testing.
