How to Integrate Risk Management Throughout the Lifecycle of a Medical Device in the Coming Decade (On-Demand)

This is an On-demand recording from June 2020.

By its very nature and application, there is an element of risk in the use of any medical device. Understanding, balancing, and quantifying that risk enables a manufacturer to bring a product to market that provides significant benefit to patients and health care providers while minimizing the risks associated with the product. This webcast will focus on how to take a modern approach to the application of risk management throughout the product lifecycle of a medical device.

According to the 2020 State of Medical Device Product Development and Quality Management Report, nearly half (49%) of medical device professionals say that they fully integrate risk management into their quality management system (QMS) throughout the product lifecycle; while 22% do not integrate risk management into their QMS, admitting risk documentation is a substantial effort for their organization.

With updated guidelines to risk management, outlined in ISO 14971:2019, the industry is still waking up to the benefits of integrating design, risk, and postmarket quality activities over the course of the device lifecycle - rather than viewing this as merely a compliance activity.

This webcast will review the application of a modern approach to risk management (risk analysis, risk evaluation, risk control, overall residual risk evaluation, production and postproduction monitoring) as a product moves through the product lifecycle (concept, development, launch, postmarket, obsolescence) followed by a question and answer session.
