Will collecting the data be successful?

One of the biggest challenges to EU MDR compliance is meeting the requirements of Post-Market Clinical Follow-up. Many device companies are hoping the combination of literature reviews and PMCF surveys will be “enough” because those approaches are much less resource intensive than registry studies and clinical investigations.

In this show our experts will discuss:

  • Circumstances when PMCF surveys are an appropriate PMCF activity

  • Documenting justification for the survey activity in the PMCF Plan
    (especially as compared to other activities)

  • Survey feedback from notified bodies; common pitfalls and how to avoid them

  • Best practices to increasing your odds of a successful notified body review of your survey data and report

If you’re anxious to kick off your survey program but have some concerns, please join us and bring your questions!
