For Medical electrical equipment, one main burden on a medical device manufacturer lies in establishing the Risk Analysis required for the testing of compliance. In this area you can make good use of Aligned Elements to simplify the process by tracking potential hazards from 60601-1 into the Risk Analysis in Aligned Elements and also simplify the reporting by generating the TRF directly.

Aligned Elements provides you with excellent design control as required by the Quality System Regulations (QSR). Your DHF is maintained including all your requirements, specifications, tests and risk artefacts.
End-to-end traceability, integrated version and review control, document management and audit trail, all these things covered directly in Aligned Elements.
The usability engineering file is an integrated part of your DHF consisting of identifications of use cases, risk analysis of use scenarios and establishing corrective design. Aligned Elements provides you with good tools for all of these disciplines also when it comes to reporting your usability engineering actions.
Cyber Security Risk Assessment templates helps you assess the Cyber Assets, Threats, Vulnerabilities and Adverse Impact of your system, in line with the FDA Cybersecurity Guidelines as well as AAIM TIR 57. Conduct your medical device risk assessment in Aligned Elements in integrate the resulting Design Control Items in the overall development traceability.
Use your Risk Analysis to apply the correct safety classification to your software items. Depending on the classification Aligned Elements guides you to refine the documentation work with detailed design and unit testing. You may in the same way capture the rational for Safety Classification A.

Risk management for medical devices is a central part of of the DHF. Whether your requires a Preliminiary hazard analysis (PHA) or an FMEA (or both), Aligned Elements will keep you covered. We believe that a very important part when it comes to risk management is to maintain the analysis as an integrated part of your DHF. Specifications may be analyzed for the FMEA, measures implemented by Requirements and thoroughly tested.
