SOLD-OUT - Software as a Medical Device

When:  Apr 15, 2020 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (ET)

Navigating the expectations for software products is particularly challenging and requires a different approach from other medical devices. This workshop will review the current and evolving regulatory requirements globally including the EU and US for software as a medical device (SaMD). Issues to be addressed include how to determine when software is considered regulated as SaMD and how to determine correct class/classifications under global requirements. Performing risk management/assessments for software is generally more challenging, so the session will include practical case studies to work through completing the required evaluations. This workshop will be particularly beneficial to regulatory professionals, QA professionals and application developers who are responsible for managing and planning regulatory compliance for software products.
