Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company, announced Stuart Kozlick as the newest member of RTI’s Advisory Board. Kozlick will serve as the Healthcare advisor, providing extensive industry expertise and helping to identify strategic growth opportunities that expand RTI’s influence in the IIoT industry.
As a seasoned executive, he brings over 17 years of experience in medical device development, innovation and research to his role on the RTI Advisory Board. Kozlick will join current advisors Scott McNealy and Karl-Thomas Neumann who are leading the way in the Technology and Automotive industries, respectively.
Today’s mission-critical healthcare systems run on real-time data. Smart systems that use interconnected data can improve patient outcomes, reduce medical errors and lower healthcare system costs. However, healthcare applications are extremely complex. Behind this complexity lies the need for an architecture that allows disparate systems to work together seamlessly. This seamless communication requires a highly reliable connectivity framework to transport data, regardless of source, in real-time.
“The healthcare industry is at the precipice of real and exciting change. RTI’s deep-rooted history creating solutions for mission-critical, autonomous systems is helping to catalyze rapid innovation in this space with its connectivity framework for next-generation healthcare systems,” said Stuart Kozlick, Healthcare Advisory Board Member at RTI. “As leaders in the IIoT and connected healthcare space, RTI’s past successes with pioneering customers assures me that I’m taking the right step forward with a company that is advancing the medical and healthcare industry.”
RTI Connext DDS is the ideal connectivity framework for the development of medical systems and healthcare applications, delivering secure, closed-loop control with deterministic, real-time connectivity. Connext DDS streamlines connectivity within complex devices and across healthcare systems, from edge to cloud. Developers can build and link healthcare applications, regardless of architecture or operating system. Its central databus seamlessly distributes data in motion, allowing medical devices and their components – regardless of manufacturer – to work as a single integrated solution – reliably, securely and in real-time. RTI has experienced record growth in its healthcare division, growing over 30% in the last two years. In March 2019, RTI was awarded Frost & Sullivan’s 2019 Global Product Leadership Award, recognized for its innovative technology, customer-focused approach and market leadership for IIoT connectivity in the healthcare market.
“Stuart is a highly-skilled medical systems and robotics industry leader who brings valuable expertise to the RTI Advisory Board,” said Brett Murphy, Senior Director of Market Development, Industrial IoT at RTI. “He will be instrumental as RTI continues to deliver innovative technologies to our healthcare customers, enabling them to advance patient care through the use of the right technology.”
