The rapid adoption of Electronic Medical Records, advent of Meaningful Use and subsequent desire to automatically acquire medical device data for inclusion in electronic records has resulted in the development and adoption of Medical Device Data Systems. FDA has observed the evolution of this market for some years, and the agency's mandate to ensure patient safety has motivated it to publish this final rule.
This webinar will compare and contrast the proposed and final rule, and discuss what systems and products meet the definition of a MDDS. The named entities that may be subject to enforcement will be discussed, including the FDA's rationale for enforcement authority. Effective compliance dates and required actions will be presented.
Recommended actions in response to the final rule will be presented for each of the applicable groups: regulated manufacturers, unregulated manufacturers and health care providers.
Areas Covered in the Seminar:
- How the final version of the rule differs from the proposed rule?
- What systems and products meet the definition of a Medical Device Data System?
- How the proposed MDDS rule applies to a sample of existing products?
- Potential targets of FDA enforcement called out in the final MDDS rule.
- Effective dates for compliance.
- Potential impact of the final rule on regulated vendors, unregulated vendors, and providers.
