Announcing the 2014 State of Medical Device Development Survey

2014_MedDevSurvey_Prizes_300x250As you may have already heard, we've launched our third annual State of Medical Device Development Survey. The online survey establishes industry benchmarks and identifies industry challenges. “This survey is an important piece of research that enables those in the medical device industry to watch developing trends and assess their own processes in an effort to stay in front of those trends,” said Rick Riccetti, president and CEO of Seapine Software. “Last year, for example, survey results indicated that medical device manufacturers were trending away from a document-centric approach to product development and toward an artifact-centric approach, which relies on commercial software to create, track, and trace individual artifacts and work items. This is an important evolution for the industry and, because survey findings are shared with all respondents, enabled them to compare their experiences and offerings with their peers and make internal adjustments as necessary.” If you're involved in the design, development, and testing of medical devices, we'd like to get your insights about risk analysis and mitigation, design control, quality control, compliance processes, and similar topics. The survey is open to medical device development professionals through August 31. You will be emailed a free copy of the report after the results are tabulated and analyzed. In addition, you'll also be registered for a chance to win a FitBit One, an Amazon Fire TV, or a Withings Wireless Scale.
