Jeffrey Shuren, M.D., J.D., Director of FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health recently posted an article on the FDA Voice stating that the FDA is examining the ways they work with hospitals regarding data collection for medical devices. Hospitals can contribute to the safe use of medical devices by participating in the National Evaluation System for health Technology (NEST).
NEST is being built to look at evidence across the total product lifecycle of medical devices — excellent information to be passed along to patients. Need assistance with your post market surveillance program? Contact Pearl Pathways to partner with you.
