How do you make sure your device remains safe and effective once it’s on the market? It’s called medical post-market surveillance (PMS), a system that provides continuous feedback about a device on the market in order to maintain a high standard of product quality. PMS is a regulatory requirement in major markets like Europe and United States.
When done right, your PMS system can improve your device, provide better service to your users, and reduce the risk of adverse events before they happen. But with a myriad of regulatory obligations looming over you, implementing a PMS system can be overwhelming. What you will learn in this 6-page white paper:
