Why You Should Attend

6th Annual Medical Device Safety Monitoring and Reporting

This 6th installment of the Medical Device Safety Monitoring and Reporting Conference will bring together leading professionals in regulatory affairs, compliance, post market surveillance, complaint handling, and in other related roles to address emerging compliance concerns, risk management trends, and product safety measures through a more integrated approach to monitoring and reporting.

Medical device companies continue to face more stringent requirements fueled by concerns surrounding safety and quality of the products designed and manufactured.  In this era of heightened regulations, companies are reviewing their medical device safety protocols, assessing post-market surveillance strategy, and shoring up internal reporting protocols to achieve global compliance.  Information related to product quality, use, and effectiveness streams in from a variety of sources and companies are accountable to analyze, manage, monitor and report any potential safety related concerns.  It is a challenge to streamline the information and close communications gaps.
