Medical Device Risk Management and Assessment Methods Webinar


The Medical Device Risk Management webinar is scheduled for May 2 from 12:30 - 2 pm MT (1:30 - 3 p.m. CT)

Medical device risk management and assessment activities support hospitals’ and health systems’ efforts to create secure medical device networks for patient safety and privacy.  This webinar will explain methods for risk management and assessment across the device life cycle.  It will explain how the medical device risk assessment platform (MDRAP) facilitates assessments, education of staff and assessment sharing.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe risk management and assessment methodologies across the life cycle of medical devices, from design to retirement
  • Explain risk management and assessment methodologies to support hospital and health system medical device network design
  • Discuss trends in the medical device procurement process and understand challenges and risks in common procurement processes and discuss strategies to mitigate the risks
