rtNOW Launches rtNOW Certified Program
Vapotherm® HVT® 2.0 first product to be certified for Usability.
FRANKENMUTH, MI, February 17, 2022 – Telerespiratory pioneer rtNOW announced a certification program today designed to highlight the critical thinking skills of rtNOW’s respiratory therapists and provide companies a mark of excellence for their product and services.
“rtNOW holds a unique position with access to an abundance of experienced respiratory therapists during a time of RT shortages,” said Justin Hawley, Chief Strategy Officer of rtNOW. “The rtNOW Certified program is an opportunity for companies to get a product in front of our RTs, and to let the respiratory therapists and additional staff have meaningful interaction with it and provide appropriate feedback. If certified, we can then let our respiratory therapists and the industry at large know that a product or service is compatible with our processes and standards of excellence. We are thrilled to have the Vapotherm HVT 2.0 device as the first product certified. Vapotherm has a long history of respiratory innovation, and we are grateful for the opportunity to empower respiratory care with them.”
The first certification to be awarded to Vapotherm is for Usability. For this certification, rtNOW used a cohort of respiratory therapists with recent inpatient experience to conduct independent testing of Vapotherm’s HVT 2.0 device based on a customized, hands-on evaluation and clinician survey tool.
“We are honored to be awarded the rtNOW seal of approval for the HVT 2.0 device”, said Cara Collins, Director of Global Marketing for Vapotherm. “The respiratory therapists who participated in the product evaluation provided invaluable feedback to ensure we continue to meet the needs of clinicians and their patients”.
“This certification is the first of many to come. We are outlining certifications for areas such as telerespiratory software, wearable devices, and more as industry presents the demand,” said Hawley.
Any company interested in a certification should contact Justin Hawley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
