Will your Innovative Product be considered 'Usable" by healthcare providers and their patients? If not,  you have significant risks for market acceptance, regulatory review, & product life cycle.
As medical devices mature and grow more capable they also become more complex, requiring focus on usability aspects from both a user experience (UX) design, human factors engineering (HFE) and regulatory perspective. 

Key Topics:

  • Customizing a UX strategy 
  • Practical advice for getting started with Human Factors Engineering
  • How to effectively mitigate usability risks using Systems Engineering 
  • Tips for navigating FDA guidance
