With lives at stake, patient safety is of the upmost importance. As such, the industry faces heavy regulations. Compliance is so critical that if medical device companies do not adhere to FDA, EU and other worldwide standards and regulations, they will not be profitable. However, so much time, effort, and cost goes into compliance documentation, it takes efforts away from innovating and ensuring high quality products.
On the other hand, medical device companies who adopt practices focused on high quality devices can expect greater patient satisfaction, improved competitiveness, and higher profits.
Michelle Boucher, Vice President of Research for Tech-Clarity will review
- Current industry trends in the medical device industry.
- How medical device companies should use these trends to improve competitiveness and profitability.
- The Case for Quality and how manufacturers can effectively bridge current gaps.
- How manufacturers should respond to stringent regulations from the FDA or the European and global standards and regulations authorities.
Ms Boucher´s guest on the webcast Mr. Sri Tupil, VP Software Quality Eng. & Program Management, Fresenius Medical Care, will give insight on how Fresenius responds to current trends to improve business. You will learn how Fresenius addresses the case for quality to improve their competitiveness and profitability and how they develop products to adhere to FDA and global regulations.
