The Need for Better Regulatory Information Management in Medical Device Manufacturing

Medical Device, Medical Device Manufacturing & Supply Chain, Medical Device Safety and Regulation,
  • Thursday, October 10, 2019

Medical device companies face an extraordinary set of challenges today. Complex and constantly changing regulatory compliance, growing product quality requirements and the evolving landscape of digital technologies are both an opportunity and a challenge for medical device companies seeking to compete and innovate.

To navigate this environment, companies must find ways to maximize revenues and ROI by manufacturing products as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. To serve global markets, they must develop products that comply with global regulations, adhere to each country’s submission process and meet growing customer needs — and they must do all this in a timely manner.

Not an easy task at all, especially when so many companies suffer from these common issues:

1. Regulatory groups are involved too-little and too-late in the product development process

2. Siloed systems for product-related information

3. Unsalable products due to delayed compliance renewals and changing country regulations

In this free webinar, expert speakers will discuss actionable insights on:

  • Regulatory information management strategies
  • Technology approach to better manage and structure internal teams, processes and data
  • Preparing your organization to better navigate future regulatory and organizational changes like EU MDR, UDI and others
