 What is the Medical Device Network Group all about? 

The group was established to provide a space to network with peers and gain valuable inspiration, insights and operational tips for improving the quality and outcome of your organization’s compliance efforts. In the first meeting, we discussed why and how to create an IT Compliance Plan that includes validation of computerized systems, control of legacy systems, qualified IT infrastructure, and accounts for the new focus by FDA and global regulatory authorities on data integrity. We also discussed a methodology to measure compliance so you can identify concrete tasks to tune your efforts to the optimal level. You can read about it and view the presentation here. 

Whether you joined the first meeting or want to join for the first time, you as a Life Science professional in Sweden are welcome to be a part of this user group. The group is designed for professionals in QA, RA, IT, system owners, and data owners.

Note: This is an open invitation for industry practitioners. If you fall into this category, please share with colleagues and other relevant people in your network. (Remember registration). This event is not open to consultants or vendors.
