This is a podcast episode titled, How to Construct an Effective Regulatory Strategy. The summary for this episode is: What is a regulatory strategy? What are the components involved? In this episode of the Global Medical Device Podcast Jon Speer talks to Mike Drues of Vascular Sciences to provide listeners with practical and pragmatic tips on how to construct a meaningful, not misunderstood, misapplied, and misused regulatory strategy. Some of the highlights of the show include: • Pro Tip: Regulatory strategy is not synonymous with Pathway to Market (element), or 510(k) and De Novo (tactics). • Regulatory Strategy Executive Summary: Living artifact that serves as a communication tool to articulate pros, cons, benefits, risks, and options. • Executive Summary components may include device description, labeling matrix, classification and risk, and potential pathways to market. • Investor Pitch Deck: Demonstrate medical device idea by knowing all options, and possessing knowledge and experience of fluid and dynamic environment. • Conventional Wisdom: Easiest, fastest, cheapest path to market to get through regulatory challenges doesn’t always make sense for products and technology. • Future Features List: What do you want added to a medical device in the future? Start with the ultimate end in mind and work backwards to build strategy and plan. • Product Development Process: Bring in regulatory sooner than later, earlier the better. Changes after a design freeze are difficult, time consuming, and costly. • Summary, Recommendations, and Takeaways: Who is your audience? Will they understand the purpose? Offer proof.
