Medical Device Vigilance

Device manufacturers have a responsibility to implement an effective post-marketing surveillance system to ensure early identification of problems or risks and report these events to competent authorities and the Medical Device vigilance module of PvEdge helps them doing the same. Medical device post-market surveillance is not only regulatory-driven but should also be considered as a good business practice. It helps the manufacturer to obtain an understanding of the performance of the device once placed on the market and provides continuous feedback that enables manufacturers to maintain a high standard of product quality and consumer satisfaction. It also helps to minimize exposure arising from incidents through effective warning and product recall processes and procedures.

Medical Device Vigilance software module of PvEdge manages incident reports including malfunctions. It captures all relevant information as per MDR, assigning them a unique Manufacturer Report Number, meeting all documentation and recordkeeping requirements. It records incident information, device attribution analysis and also evaluations/investigations results, allowing easy and timely access and retrieval of data.

It helps in the generation of various reports for submission to different regulatory authorities around the world.
