Clinical Evaluation of Medical Devices
What is Clinical Evaluation?
Clinical Evaluation is very important in the lifecycle of any medical device. As part of Clinical Evaluation, one can perform literature reviews and clinical trials to collect the clinical data of similar medical devices. The collected clinical data is then used to measure the safety and efficacy of the corresponding medical device.
In addition, the clinical evaluation is also performed to assess the potential risks, contraindications and delivery mechanisms of the medical devices.
Why is Clinical Evaluation important?
Clinical Evaluation is necessary to demonstrate clinical safety and performance of the medical device in accordance with the requirements of the European Medical Devices Directive.
Clinical Evaluation offers the following benefits to your business:
Avoid major pitfalls of clinical regulatory submissions
Provide detailed documentation on performance and clinical safety of your medical device
Ensure continuous compliance throughout the lifecycle of your medical device
What are the Main Documents?
Clinical Evaluation requirements have increased dramatically since the release of MEDDEV 2.7.1 Rev 4 in 2016 and the MDR 2017/745 in May of 2017. The process now involves two documents; the Clinical Evaluation Plan (CEP) and Clinical Evaluation Report (CER).
For more information on CEP and CER, please visit the Clinical Evaluation Report (CER) link.
Who are Clinical Evaluators?
The clinical evaluation should be conducted by a suitably qualified individual or a team with required competencies. Evaluators who sign the CER are responsible for its contents and may include CER Writer, Device Specialist, and Client Specialist.
