10:00am - 11:00am — Marketing Compliance

Medtech marketers are charged with building awareness and adoption for their products, often under significant budget constraints, within a highly regulated environment. There are thousands of seemingly innocuous ways of going off-label or contra-indication that can spell disaster for companies of any size. How do medtech marketers ensure this does not happen to them and accomplish their sales supporting mission effectively? Moreover, regulatory pathway decisions in very early stages of product development have serious implications for marketing teams and budget requirements as it moves closer and closer to commercialization. Do you have to go for a PMA? Is there greater commercial value and ROI in investing a little more time in design and development to do a 510k instead of a class 1 project?

Wearables, Advanced Analytics, & Personalized Healthcare delivery
