Changing Pathway to Market?—Mike on Medtech

Changing Pathway to Market?—Mike on Medtech

Sean Fenske and Mike Drues discuss the changing MDR for CE mark and its impact on the “first to market” route companies take.

In this episode of Mike on Medtech with Mike Drues, president of Vascular Sciences, we discuss my lastest Editor’s Letter that appeared in the April issue of MPO. Click here to read that Letter. In it, I reach out to a number of industry experts on regulatory strategies and compliance to ask about a number of changes happening worldwide. One of the primary topics is the European MDR and how its transformation will affect companies’ strategies for the launch of their product. Specifically, the potential of the U.S. to become a “first to market” target going forward versus what has been an EU/CE mark first strategy for quite some time. Having his own comments on this topic, I posed similar questions to Mike during this episode to get his insights and what shifts he saw as potential outcomes of the MDR changes.

During the discussion, there is mention of a previous podcast topic—the Alternative 510(k). Click here to listen to that podcast.
