The Innovation Roadmap™ is a development approach designed to yield innovation and competitive differentiation while conforming with the FDA-QSR & ISO-13485.

A properly formatted Innovation Roadmap™ can change a medical device development team’s perception as related to realizing the FDA’s recommendations and prescriptions are structured to yield innovation not inhibit. This is a PARADIGM SHIFT we take a deep dive into within this free webinar while exploring the roadmap.

Agenda Topics:

  • Learn the 3-Step Innovation Roadmap™ for optimized medical device development including Discovery Research™, MVP R&D, and AGILE Commercialization under ISO-13485.
  • Understand how regulatory controls can be leveraged in the development process to produce a device that is truly innovative.
  • Learn how to utilize a development process which results in a device that will be reliable, safe, and effective for its users while infusing competitive differentiation.
  • Learn the key engineering/design disciplines and tools deployed to achieve innovation success.
  • Review of Case Studies that demonstrate implementation of these innovation principles yielding advanced medical devices.

Our live webinar will be recorded. If you are unable to attend, please register and we will follow-up with a recording of the program.
