Overview:
The IEC 62304 standard was developed to address
safety concerns triggered by the rising number of devices in the medical
industry that use software. Checking each stage of software development to help
create a functionally safe medical device is plain common sense, but the
collation of evidence of compliance with the standard itself can be a real
headache.

Traceability is key to the success of medical device approval,
and yet too often it tends to be a background task. This webinar explains why
making traceability the focal point of your development efforts from the
beginning of development and throughout the project lifecycle can help ensure
that the collation of evidence becomes second nature rather than a secondary
overhead.

Join QNX Software Systems and LDRA for this web seminar as we
offer insights using examples from our experience with safe systems, not only in
the medical devices sector, but also in other fields.
