Medical Device Software Risk Management Standard | Software Expert 2018

NetZealous DBA as GlobalCompliancePanel

 

Course "Medical Device Software: An Incremental Approach to Risk and Quality Management" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

 

Overview:

 

Engineers are dedicated to making things work, so a focus on how they might fail and harm someone can seem alien.

Managing risk, however, is essential for all medical products- medical devices, including those involving software, have produced some painful examples of poor risk management with serious consequences. Experience has shown that there is a better way, that it is possible to manage risk in a changing business and technical world.

Regulatory bodies are placing increased emphasis on risk management, and technology shifts are introducing new sources of risk. Newer Lean-Agile methods are recognized by the FDA as a good way to accomplish risk management.

Techniques for risk management are well established, but require specific interpretation when applied to software. In this session, we will show a way of knitting risk management into the development process, so that it is integral to product development, not a ten ton caboose dragging the train back down the mountain.

 

Why you should attend:

 

Perhaps your engineering team is beginning its transition to an Agile approach - or perhaps you have a seasoned Agile team and you're just beginning work on FDA-regulated products. You know that risk management is required, but it's not at all clear how you should address it as you go through your backlog grooming, iterations, and end-user demonstrations. The process in ISO 14971 seems "linear" and unsuited to a highly iterative, dynamic lifecycle. How can you fit it into your approach?

 

Areas Covered in the Session:

 

         Software has introduced (or been blamed for) some serious safety hazards

         All medical device standards intersect on the topic of risk management

         Risk analysis starts with the intended use statement

         Risk information is available from multipl sources - use them!

         Note that safety is an emergent property

         Changes are often the biggest sources of risk

         Don't ignore the human factors side; understanding your users is crucial to safety

         Applying engineering risk methods to software requires us to translate some concepts

         Though standards draw a roadmap for risk management, WE must figure out the route

         Risks often arise when we add new features - so incremental risk management is the most effective

         Forget the notion that "software can't hurt anyone"

         Never conduct risk analysis by using a checklist from 14971

         Exploding technology brings numerous chances for risk to multiply

 

Who will benefit:

 

         Project managers

         Regulatory specialists

         Quality assurance specialists

         Documentation specialists

         Test managers

         Software team leaders and lead developers

 

Agenda:

 

Day 1 Schedule

 

Lecture 1:

Software brings great capability to medical devices, but also creates hazards

Lecture 2:

Consider how the key standards lay out the roadmap for managing risk

Lecture 3:

Understand the key concepts - hazard, risk, and harm

Lecture 4:

Walk through ISO 14971 in detail - and consider IEC 80002-1 for specific software concerns

 

Day 2 Schedule

 

Lecture 1:

Fault tree analysis and FMEA complement each other for risk analysis

Lecture 2:

Risk analysis for software is different from hardware - and needs a place in the lifecycle

Lecture 3:

Story mapping helps bring risk management directly into development

Lecture 4:

An incremental approach manages both risk and quality
