RAC Credits
Tuesday, 11 August 2020 (12:00 PM) - Tuesday, 11 August 2020 (1:30 PM) Eastern Time (US & Canada)


Postmarket Clinical Follow-up (PMCF) planning and execution can be challenging, requiring input from multiple functions within an organization. This webcast will walk you through a clear process for ensuring your PMCF planning is effective and efficient, beginning with an overview of what's required and how to evaluate your current state against the requirements. The broadcast will cover considerations for potential PMCF activities, including the execution plan and weight each carries with notified bodies in terms of clinical evidence. You will learn why having well-documented justification for how you selected PMCF activities is essential to a successful notified body audit and leave well-equipped with the knowledge to either begin the process or make improvements mid-stream.

This webcast will cover:

  • MDR and IVDR PMCF requirements
  • How to pick the best strategy for your needs (surveys, literature searches, registries, studies, etc.) 
  • Considerations for each PMCF activity, including like HIPAA, General Data Safety Protection Requirements, and statistical analysis plans
  • How to successfully execute PMCF activities, including project management, timelines, and budgets while avoiding potential pitfalls 
  • How to document strong justifications for your selected PMCF strategies
