Panel Details: 

New ideas, new scientific discoveries, and new manufacturing technologies not only drive new products, they change how those products are designed and developed. The Covid-19 pandemic placed intense challenges on design and engineering teams, tasking them with rapid product pivots while simultaneously reinventing team work via remote access. Meanwhile, the growth of connected and data driven products is expanding the range of skills and resources needed to produce the average medical device. 

Topics include:

  • Designing products moving into new contexts (home use, public health, workplace health, remote care)
  • Managing the complex requirements, documentation, and resources needed to develop “smart” products. 
  • How to help your design team adapt through workplace changes and changes in client priorities.
  • Using your design team as part of your reimbursement, regulatory, and supply chain strategy.
