Medical Device Product Development: Beyond Compliance

Medical Device Product Development: Beyond Compliance

For today's medical device companies, implementing new product development (NPD) processes that comply with increasing regulatory requirements is a challenge. Many companies have inadvertently deployed overly bureaucratic systems and, as a result, have found themselves with increasing costs and slowing development.

Kalypso recently completed research to explore how leading medical device companies are balancing NPD with compliance requirements.

Join Kalypso on December 2, 2008 at 4PM at the Mission Bay Conference Center at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) for a one hour complimentary afternoon session presented by Noel Sobelman and Marcus Yoder of Kalypso. Mr. Sobelman and Mr. Yoder will discuss best practice models for maintaining compliance while streamlining NPD. They will also present data from Kalypso's "Beyond Compliance" industry study that will provide further insight into best practices from today’s leading companies.

This session will explore innovation and NPD best practices unique to the medical device industry, including:

  • Project Governance and Decision Making
  • Process Structure
  • Project Team Organization
  • Portfolio Management
  • Software Systems & Tools

The session will conclude with Q&A, with a cocktail reception immediately following until 7PM.
