Post-Market Surveillance Medical Device Market Research
Post-Market Surveillance has become critical for medical device companies under the new European Medical Device Regulation (MDR). The new regulations require manufacturers to ‘actively and systematically gather, record and analyse data’ for the lifetime of their device.
The MDR significantly increases the role of PMS, requiring a ‘post-market surveillance system’ to be an ‘integral’ part of a company’s quality management system.
At MDMR, we can help you develop your post-market surveillance market research plan and then implement the plan for you.
With extensive experience of a range of methodologies, we can ensure that the feedback you receive answers the specific questions you have about how your medical device is perceived. Some of the methodologies we suggest include;
- Expert panels
- Patient panels
- Focus groups
- Telephone interviews
- Online surveys
- Advisory boards
- Face-to-face interviews
- Conference/Exhibition feedback
Even if you have an existing medical device, you will need to meet the requirements of the new European Medical Device Regulation when your CE Mark comes up for renewal. We can help you now to develop your customer feedback mechanisms to ensure that you are already meeting the new standard.
A full, easily-digestible written report will accompany all market research carried out by MDMR as we feel it is important for the client to be able to refer back to the research results when making business decisions. We will, of course, always be on hand to answer any queries too.
