OPIS for Medical Devices

To date, more than 10.000 medical devices are available on the market and the number corresponding to the amount of medical devices approved by the authorities in charge in the last 2 years has been 10 times greater than the one appraised to drugs.

When it comes to medical devices, the complexity and the variety of the possible therapeutic applications require extensive experience in all the aspects of the authorization process.

To use medical devices rationally, health-care professionals must base their choices about which devices to recommend for individual patients on an objective assessment of their safety and clinical efficacy.

The evidence submitted by manufacturers when seeking approval of their high-risk devices must be publicly available, including the technical performance and premarket clinical studies. Giving physicians access to this information supplements the peer-reviewed scientific literature and might be essential for comparing alternative devices within any class. Interested patients should be encouraged to review the evidence for any device that has been recommended for them. The new EU law on medical devices states that the manufacturer is to prepare a summary of the evidence for any implantable or high-risk device.

OPIS has an experienced medical and scientific writing staff with a specific strong expertise in Clinical Evaluation Reports (CER) following the new rules established by the New EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR).
