Medical Device Manufacturers
We Need Medical Device Manufacturers
The MDIAS community is currently expanding. Medical device manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and other members of the life and health services industry and industry associations are needed as partners. The mission of MDIAS is to improve patient safety, quality, and satisfaction outcomes by collaboratively leveraging data across the medical device ecosystem. In order to lead the effort toward continuous improvement for medical device quality, safety, and patient experience, representation is needed from the entire ecosystem – participation from manufacturers is essential.
Did You Know?
There are over 330,000 organizations involved in medical device manufacturing, and over 20 trade and industry member associations. Regulatory and market trends in the medical device system have moved toward modernized quality system regulations and devices that produce more data to monitor.
By participating in MDIAS, life and health services industry partners can help to improve the industry’s ability to leverage data to create a knowledge-rich environment that benefits patients, the medical device ecosystem, and regulators. Participation also allows manufacturers more flexibility to change, enhance, and adapt processes and products to improve medical device quality while accelerating time to market and minimizing the use of compliance audits to point out deficiencies.
By increasing MDIAS participation, medical device manufacturers and other partners from the life and health services industry will experience the following benefits:
- New B2B relationships
- Enhanced provider training
- More agile systems
- Improved product design
- Regulatory paradigm shift
- Industry leadership
- Reduced waste
- Increased completive advantage
- Accelerated time to market
