Event Focus

Given that the malfunction of a device can lead to fatality, the need to ensure these devices are safe and are monitored effectively is crucial. Any complaints on devices need to be monitored so that if there is a need to recall the device, it can be done effectively and quickly, without any further impact to patients.

The ability to collect data from different sources and the need to understand and meet the different requirements for global regulations.

The Medical Device Safety Monitoring and Reporting Conference will be a two-day, industry focused event, specific to those within Regulatory Affairs, Quality Assurance, Medical Device Reporting and Clinical Affairs.

  3. Maintain compliance when monitoring devices
  4. Establish strategies for device recalls and corrections
  5. Improve pre-market monitoring processes

This conference will bring together the leading medical device companies to discuss the current challenges faced when monitoring and reporting the safety of both pre-market and post-market medical devices. By attending, delegates will be able to leverage the safety and effectiveness of medical devices to mitigate risk when promoting products globally, as well as gain a better understanding of FDA and international reporting requirements.

This is not a trade show; our Medical Device Safety Conference is targeted at a focused group of senior level leaders to maintain an intimate atmosphere for the delegates and speakers. Since we are not a vendor driven conference, the higher level focus allows the delegates to network with their industry peers and speakers.
