For medical manufacturing professionals, the MD&M conferences and exhibits are some of the most valuable professional networking tools available. At MD&M East, medical manufacturing professionals, from the eastern United States and from areas spread across the world, meet together with regulatory, quality, compliance, and manufacturing experts to glean and share knowledge. Tracks covered over the course of the most recent conference, held June 13.-15, 2016, focused on “Market Value and Consumer Health, New Technologies, Big Data, and Mobile Product Risk.”
One of MasterControl’s most seasoned quality experts, Walt Murray, presented at the recent conference on risk management, which for the last two years has been an especially salient topic for medical device and medical manufacturing professionals. Between changes in the ISO 13485 regulations and the general management and coordination of regulations and standards across the medical manufacturing industry, risk management is changing in distinct ways that are affecting the medical device and manufacturing sectors.
