Enhancing Design Flows to Successfully Impact Product Life-Cycles & Launches

This forum will serve as a platform to exchange best practices, review industry trends and drive innovative solutions for Patients”- Phani Bidarahalli, Conference Chairman and GM & Global Practice Head - Healthcare Engineering, Wipro


With innovative and effective software design, medical device manufacturers are able to go-to-market quicker and more successfully---as well as positively affect their product life-cycles. However, due to increased regulatory pressures, ensuring efficient design into product R&D, quality assurance, validation & verification, and other aspects of the product life-cycle can be challenging. By harnessing the appropriate tools to be more effective, medical device manufacturers are able to thrive within this highly-competitive marketplace.

IQPC’s 20th Software Design for Medical Devices Summit- East was conceived to address the challenges, identify the opportunities and provide perspective on the applicable solutions within the industry, so that medical device manufacturers can be more competitive in today’s time-sensitive, regulation-driven marketplace.

Top Benefits of Attending:

Learn how software design can influence design flows to accelerate successful product launches and life-cycles

Evaluate the regulatory landscape to ensure compliance, therefore avoiding halts in design/launch

Examine a variety of resources, practice methods, and team dynamics to improve design outcomes

Learn more about the topics vital to your continued success
