Course overview

Whether developing new medical software for more precise diagnosis and targeted treatment or a healthcare app for individuals concerned about their health, manufacturers are tasked to appreciably prove to authorities the safety, quality, and effectiveness of their products. The evaluation of clinical safety and performance, as well as the overall benefit‑risk profile of the product, through a critical assessment of relevant data, is one of the key requirements for the manufacturers of a medical device software and a focus area for regulators.

This course will provide a clear understanding of the the clinical evaluation requirements and their practical application for software products, including AI/ML-based devices. It will also provide advice on how to determine the type and amount of data needed to sufficiently support the intended medical purpose and (individual) clinical claims, with many practical examples and analysis of differences between EU MDR and FDA approach.

This course is of our range of Medical Devices training courses - now also including Medical Devices Cyber Security training to help improve your data security.
