Webinar Description

·         Medical device recalls can cost billions. The number of medical device products affected by recalls hit an eight-quarter high in the second quarter of 2012, exceeding 100 million units.

·         Perhaps most striking is the fact that of the 140 medical device companies affected by recalls in the 90-day period in this quarter, one-third faced multiple recalls.

·         More than 10 million units were affected. It is a reminder that recalls can happen to any company—especially as more and more companies turn to outsourcing [1].

·         A Division of a highly reputable company paid over 4 billion dollars just to settle 8,000 lawsuits for hip joint device recall which resulted in severe pain and injury to the users from metallic debris generated. In addition, the company paid surgical expenses to those affected.

·         While most standards are helpful, they can be considered only minimum requirements where self interest prevails.

·         Even in healthcare where compliance to standards is at highest level, more patients die from medical mistakes each week than a jumbo jet crashing.

·         Understand how mishaps can happen before they happen & preventing them by design is key.

·          The FDA reviews the results of the performance tests during pre-market approvals, and in complaint investigations. Therefore a thorough understanding of designing medical devices for a long reliable and safe life by the entire staff is critical in efficient business strategy.
