Key Learning Objectives

The secret life of Medical Device Development

Let me take you on a holistic walk through the act of developing a medical device, joining dots rather than picking on a discrete activity.
There is a lot of common sense that underpins the regulation but it seems lost in both presentation and interpretation.
Taking a step back and asking: “Why are we doing this?” can help you to see the woods beyond the regulatory trees.

Presented by: Mike Heald, CEO, Commala

Demystifying software risk management

Medical device software risk management is often perceived as complicated to understand and work with – it is not!
In this seminar, you will not only get the foundational understandings, but you will also understand how to practice medical device software risk management!

Presented by: Christian Kaestner, co-author of IEC 62304 and IEC 82304-1, trainer at Medical Device HQ 

Human-centered development as a driver of medical product innovation

If you want to create medical devices that people love, then usability, user experience (UX), and ergonomics is the road forward.
We will describe how you can establish a human-centered development process and how using prototypes with real users during the early stages can provide new and powerful insights.
We will explore the usability and human factors engineering regulatory underpinnings and their relation to ISO 13485.
We will dissect which types of use-related risks exist and how they can be analysed according to ISO 14971 during your product development.

Presented by: Dr.-Ing. Benedikt Janny, CEO, USE-Ing. GmbH

EUDAMED - how bad can it be?

If you thought you had covered Eudamed by implementing UDI's, then think again!
In this talk, we will address the deliverables required by medical device manufacturers, how to use medical device codes, how to communicate with the Eudamed servers.
We'll describe how to deal with legacy devices and how you can best organize your work to efficiently meet the Eudamed challenges ahead.

Eudamed is coming for you. We will help you prepare.

Presented by: Richard Houlihan, CEO, Eudamed Ltd, former technical manager for Eudamed 2 and MDR EUDAMED July 2017 - April 2019 

Finding, eliminating, and avoiding errors in Design Control Documentation - before audits and submissions

Having spent years developing and documenting a medical device just to get it rejected by a Notified Body or the FDA is a costly and disheartening experience.
Are there other ways than lengthy reviews to find and eliminate inconsistencies in your Technical Documentation?
Learn from this session about strategies, techniques, and methods for finding, eliminating, and avoiding errors in your Technical File.

Presented by: Karl Larsson, Medical Device Documentation Expert, Aligned AG
