The Cutting Edge of Medical Technology Content, Community & Collaboration
This course is essential for Medical Device companies interested in submitting software enabled medical Devices or Software as a Medical Device to the FDA for 510K approval. One of the biggest risks most company's face when submitting their device for approval is finding out after seven or more months of waiting that the 510K has been denied because the software portion of the submittal is inadequate and not compliant. They also face potential audit risk which might prevent them from selling their approved product if they have been found to not have an IEC62304 Compliant Software Quality System.
Why should you Attend
Developing software for medical devices can be a challenge especially if the device is complicated. You do not know if it is safe enough. You do not know if it tested enough. You do not know if the FDA will consider it for suitability for a 510K. Should your software cause harm to someone you don't know if you are protected from liability should your software fail.
Compliance with IEC62304 is key to ensure your software has been developed to the highest level of safety. Developing software based on the standard shows one way to indicate an intent to ensure the safety of your product. Gives you a framework to ensure you are developing and testing to consistent and stringent standard. Demonstrating compliance with the standard will be apparent in your submission and will be one way to ensure acceptance by the FDA.
