Fathom Consulting selected as human factors service provider in Twin Cities’ Medical Device Resource Group

Fathom Consulting has worked in the health technology and medical device space for over 20 years, enjoying long-time partnerships with clients that span start-ups to global Fortune 250 companies. And we’re continually deepening our knowledge and broadening our capabilities in user-centered design and human factors engineering as our med tech clients bring new services and products to market.

That’s why we’re thrilled that our expertise has been recognized with an invitation for Fathom to join the Twin-Cities based Medical Device Resource Group (MDRG)—a coalition of independent companies that collectively offer broad expertise in the medical device company. The MDRG’s 16 members (17 with Fathom!) assist organizations in all stages of the medical device development cycle, from concept to post-launch. We’ve been identified as the group’s exclusive human factors and human-centered design service provider, assisting clients with early business and pre-market services such as:

  • Field research
  • Requirements gathering and development
  • Qualitative and quantitative research
  • Design thinking workshops
  • User Interface design
  • Documentation development, including FDA-required task analyses, risk analyses, and human factors plans
  • Formative and summative testing
  • Design documentation

 

In addition to offering organizations the ease of working with a unified resource of trusted experts, the MDRG is also known for its high-quality programming throughout the Twin Cities. Principal consultant Mary Donnelly recently joined fellow MDRG members on an expert panel, “Human Factors Engineering: Designing for Success.”

“We wholeheartedly welcome Fathom Consulting, and are excited about the expertise, participation and new relationships they will bring to our MDRG family,” said MDRG leader Charlie Jones of QTS Medical Device Outsourcing.
