Previous Events

3-4 Dezember 2019: 2nd Forum Risk Management Medical Devices

Medsoto Managing Director Sven Wittorf will be a speaker at the 2nd Forum Risk Management Medical Devices. On the second day of the event he will talk about “The first cut is the deepest – How interfaces of risk management can become interfaces”. In terms of content, he will thus address the “big issues” in the development of medical devices, the connection with risk management and the thematic interfaces between these issues.

The Medical Devices Risk Management Forum is aimed at FMEA experts, interested developers and manufacturers of medical devices and will take place from 3 to 4 December 2019 in the Novotel Hotel Nuremberg. The event is organized by DIETZ Consultants, a global provider of consulting and services for best practice solutions in the fields of quality and risk management. Further information on the event can be found on the DIETZ Consultants website.

Medsoto will be present at MedConf 2019. Sven Wittorf will give a lecture on tool-based requirements management on the first day of the conference (October 23rd) at 10:50 a.m. and will answer questions such as how to successfully organize such a project and what Dos and Dont’s there are. Further information on the presentation can be found here.

Would you like to delve deeper into the use of software tools in the development and documentation of medical software? Do you have individual questions about your projects that you have always wanted to ask? Then register for Sven Wittorf’s intensive coaching. On 23 October from 2:40 p.m. it will be almost two hours to discuss best practice and pitfalls during the introduction and use of software tools in medical technology. Find out more here.

11 September 2019: VDE workshop in Frankfurt a.M. on "Software life cycle for medical devices - how to implement IEC 62304 and 82304-1"

The new EU Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) requires manufacturers to develop and manufacture software according to the “principles of the software life cycle”. The relevant standard for this is IEC 62304, which is currently being updated. The IEC 82304-1 standard completes the applicability by, among other things, extending its focus to the life cycle of health software and stand-alone software (medical apps).

Medsoto Managing Director Sven Wittorf will speak at the VDE event about the “Implementation of life cycle processes in development – from theory to implementation”. The following questions are among others on the agenda:

  • How can I work with the standard in a structured way?
  • Which requirements are particularly difficult to implement?
  • Requirements, traceability, test planning, proof of conformity – how does that work?
  • How and where can tools support me?

In order to provide sufficient opportunities for discussion and direct contact with our experts, the number of participants is limited to 40. You can find further information on the event and the registration form on the VDE website.

15 May 2019: VDE Medical Software Event in Frankfurt

On the 15th of May the VDE organizes an event in Frankfurt on the subject of Medical Software. Medsoto will be there with an exhibitor stand.
This year’s event is bilingual (German and English). The speakers will be dealing with topics such as risk management, quality management, post-market clinical follow-up (PMCF) and technical documentation. Of course, we are also at your disposal for questions and discussions at any time. Visit us at our booth – we look forward to meeting you!

Those who register and book their ticket on the VDE medical platform by 15 April will receive free admission. Further information can be found on the event page.

19-20 March 2019: TÜV SÜD medical.device.forum in Munich

Medsoto will be represented with a booth at the 12th medical.device.forum of TÜV SÜD. The symposium will deal with the adoption of the European Medical Devices Regulation. What changes will all market participants face regarding approval, processes, products and monitoring of medical devices? Government representatives, experts from TÜV SÜD and medical device manufacturers will present the most important regulatory areas and show possible concepts for efficiently implementing the new regulatory requirements. During the breaks, we look forward to a visit to our stand and an exciting exchange of ideas.

Further information, including the programme, can be found on TÜV SÜD’s website.

21 February 2019: Webinar - Polarion Consulation Hour

We are starting the new webinar year with a new format: The “Polarion Consultation Hour”. You specify the topics for this webinar: Ask us everything you always wanted to know about Polarion.

How does it work?

We will ask for your impulses when you register for our webinar. We sort your questions and crystallize the main topics. We will send you an agenda with the main topics a few days before the webinar so that you can get an idea of them.

The following questions serve as an example – of course you can use one or more of them as “your” question:

– can Polarion be used as a document management system?
– what are the “performance killers” in Polarion?
– what are proven, audit-proof workflows for documents and work items?
– Polarion and JIRA – what for?
– can I map my process instructions in Polarion?
– why do I use Permissions and Access Management?
– I want to introduce Polarion – How do I find out how many and which license types I need?
– what does my auditor say about direct access via SVN?
– what validation effort is required for Polarion?
– what does the performance of Polarion look like with large amounts of data/many users?
– why not do without Polarion Maintenance?
– what is your experience with Polarion SaaS / Cloud?
– is Polarion Part 11 compliant as advertised?
– what is the difference between the different Polarion licenses?
– what does the planned upgrade to Open JDK 11 mean for my Polarion installation?
– many of our reports run as Classic Wiki Page, which is now called “Depricate” / “not recommended”. What do I have to expect in the future?
– Polarion partly relies on outdated technologies such as older PostgreSQL versions. How can we guarantee our IT security?
– when do I have to validate Polarion and when can I talk my way out?
– which parts of the technical documentation of my medical device can I use Polarion for, which parts should I handle separately?
– our supplier / customer also works with Polarion. How can we link (and evaluate) the data of the two Polarion servers without disclosing trade secrets?
