Join a Host of Experts for the Upcoming Medical Device Packaging & Labeling Summit
by Maureen Perroni, on April 20, 2017
As medical device and diagnostic manufacturers continue to develop life enhancing products for patients across the globe, medical product labels and device packaging hold an increasingly important position to healthcare professionals and patients. As such, medical device companies must consider a plethora of factors when designing and developing packaging and labeling- including human factors, material characteristics and overall cost, operations optimization, as well as regulatory reviews.
This is why, if you're involved in medical device packaging and labeling you won't want to miss the sixth semi- annual Medical Device Packaging & Labeling Summit scheduled for April 27 and 28 in Arlington, VA at the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel. The event offers a two-track programs, one focusing specifically on labeling, and one on packaging. There will be presentations and discussions offered from a range of experts within the industry, as well as from standard organizations and regulatory bodies, who will provide timely insights on topics impacting packaging and labeling operations in the medical device space. The program will also include a UDI-specific track, open to those in need of further clarification into device identification challenges.
Areas of packaging and labeling challenges will be examined in great depth and debated during lively Q&A sessions following each presentation, allowing for a maximized number of key messages delivered on site. With packaging and labeling executives actively looking for new technology and solutions for streamlining programs, sponsors will find this conference to be an excellent business development opportunity.
One of the highlights of this year's summit will include a panel discussion "Optimizing the Labeling Function by Driving an Organizational Shift moderated by Loftware's Life Sciences Expert, Laura Johnson. The discussion taking place on 4/28 @ 8:45 am will underscore the importance of labeling as an essential component of pre and post-market operations in device and diagnostic corporations. The discussion will address the challenges labeling teams are addressing. Those include the difficulty in sourcing the correct data, as well as standardizing processes and delivering results in time due to common lack of proper positioning of the labeling function.
The panel includes Sarah Grare, Program Director, Global Labeling, STRYKER, Shital Bhammar, Supervisor, Product Labeling, HOLOGIC and Tammy Tortorici, Senior Manager, International Labeling Systems, ABBOTT DIAGNOSTICS. They will further discuss how today's labeling professionals are analyzing methods to re-structure overall workflows and make labeling more prominent to ensure efficiency within medical device companies by positioning labeling as an early-on priority and establishing centralized labeling control & functionstructuring to address significant labeling initiatives.
