Framework of modern medical software development lifecycle

Home / Trainings and events / Framework of modern medical software development lifecycle

This two-day training is intended for medical software manufacturers and goes through the development of medical software in the IEC 62304 framework. The training provides the participant with a vantage point for software development in a medical environment as well as a strong understanding of quality issues and related terminology. Training improves communication between quality and software people and thereby enhances the development of compliant and high-quality software. This training is also MDR and IVDR compliant.
