This webinar will discuss how to integrate Human Factors Engineering into the Risk Management process as per the requirements of the FDA’s Guidance for Applying Human Factors and Usability Engineering to Medical Devices (2_2016) and IEC62366-1 Application of usability engineering to medical devices (2_2015) and ISO 14971 Medical devices - Application of risk management to medical devices (12_2019). Both Human Factors Engineering and Risk Management standards are complementary in their goals to reduce the safety risks associated with medical devices to levels as low as reasonably possible. This webinar presents organizations with opportunities and insights on how to align and streamline their approach.

Why Should You Attend:

Following Risk Management standards is essential for medical device manufacturers, but what about the risks associated with the tasks of the users of your medical device? Have you factored humans using your medical device into your risk management analysis? The standards for medical device risk management and human factors risk management are complementary. Understanding how to consider both will allow you to not only consider risks that may occur during the design, development, and commercialization of the medical device, but also the risks that are inherent due to human nature and the tasks your users perform when using medical devices. U.S. and International standards are coming together to embrace not only the risks of the device itself but risks associated with users of the device and point to a growing awareness that both are important to patient outcomes and safety.

Both Human Factors Engineering and Risk Management standards have similar goals with regard to the reduction of risk related to safety of medical devices. Rather than seeking to address the standards individually, a comprehensive understanding and approach to both disciplines can be employed to streamline risk based analysis and data collection throughout a product’s design, development, and commercialization. Understanding the goals of the standards as they relate to users safe and effective use of the product provides the opportunity to leverage the synergies between both disciplines and reduce risks throughout the product development lifecycle.

This webinar will provide individuals with an opportunity to understand the goals of both Human Factors and Risk Management processes pertaining to the reduction of risks related to end user and medical device safety. In addition, the complementary parallels and opportunities for data collection and analysis throughout the product development lifecycle will be explored.
