In-home diagnostics and patient monitoring are changing the game for patients and the broader healthcare industry.
Monitored Therapeutics, Inc. (MTI) is a remote patient monitoring company with a focus on respiratory diseases. For MTI, choosing an affordable MedTech-specific QMS that would help them successfully navigate audits and manage post-market surveillance was critical.
Monitored Therapeutics: Bluetooth Diagnostic Devices for Home and for Clinic
MTI is an Ohio-based MedTech company that currently sells proprietary diagnostic products globally. The company has built a powerful cloud-based system that enables their devices to share accurate patient data back to clinicians in real-time. Their flagship product, GoSpiro, is a Bluetooth spirometer that allows patients to get lab-quality diagnostics from the comfort of their homes at a significantly lower cost. GoSpiro is just one of several other at-home diagnostic products Monitored Therapeutics sells today.
The company's mission is to extend access to care to patients through a standardized technology platform, while decreasing cost of healthcare by allowing patients access to healthcare from the comfort of their homes.
Navigating the regulatory landscape poses a challenge to the entire industry, and MTI is no exception. Keeping up with the quality and regulatory field gets more complex when distributing products globally, and ensuring compliance is just one piece of the puzzle.
For MTI, success is defined by maximizing patient safety while producing and communicating accurate patient data. When FDA, ISO 13485, MDSAP, and several customer audits were on the horizon, MTI needed to switch to a QMS that was more than just a tool. They required a solution that would be their guide and support them along the way.
Like many medical device companies, cost was also a challenge for MTI as they started to scale. Choosing a QMS for them meant choosing a solution that was the right fit for all of their key teams: Executive, Quality, and Product Development.

The primary factors in their decision to partner with Greenlight Guru were the affordable cost, the robustness of the solution, and the services that came alongside the solution. Greenlight Guru’s proven track record of helping 1000+ MedTech companies across all stages of scaling a MedTech business was another contributing factor to their thoughtful selection of a vendor.
