Back ground of the topic:

Medical device recalls can cost billions. The number of medical device products affected by recalls have been increasing every year, exceeding 100 million units. This webinar not only teaches how to prevent recalls but also how to get high return on investment by finding very low cost solutions.

Why should you attend? 

A critical and sometimes overlooked aspect of preventing medical device recalls is the inability to implement systems thinking. Systems thinking is not a panacea that can prevent every mistake, but it a best known tool that helps us predict hidden risks and help us see many robust solutions to eliminate risks. Unlike the limited single focused cause-and-effect approach, the systems thinking is about relatedness of individual causes to system causes, interdependencies on the knowledge of cross functional teams, interdependencies on the knowledge of manufacturers and device users, and understanding what you don’t know.

Description of the topic:

• Understand that FDA requirements are minimum requirements, we need to do lot more.

• Learn to write robust performance specifications

• Learn to form productive and innovative teams

• Avoid wrong practices in risk analysis

• Learn the best methods in risk analysis

• Conduct the design reviews to get high return on investment

• Learn to manage Verifications and Validations the right way
