Slides presented at "Getting Your Medical Device FDA Approved" event, presented by Mentor Graphics Embedded Software, discussing how to address the enhanced scrutiny from government agencies that can introduce significant delays with the commercial release of software-related medical devices.
Getting through the FDA review as quickly as possible requires a clear understanding of the development standards, documentation and testing that is now expected for Medical devices. During this session we discussed how FDA hot buttons affect your medical device submission will be discussed, including:
-Requirements for software development as outlined in IEC 62304
-Content considerations for premarket submissions
-Human factors engineering as a platform for enhanced user safety
-Provisions for data security and protection against unauthorized wireless access
We reviewed the design control requirements and product development approach that can shorten your medical device's path to market with a focus on safety, human factors engineering and security.
