It’s All Interconnected: Hidden Traps That Can Derail Your PER

With the implementation of IVDR requirements, IVD manufacturers have been challenged to align their internal processes and systems to comply with these rigorous regulations. In this practical presentation, Criterion Edge uncovers what we have learned from our experience in writing MDR-compliant CERs, and how urgently applicable some of these key learnings are in preparing a robust Performance Evaluation Report (PER).  

This presentation provides practical tips on how to assess for hidden traps and unexpected roadblocks that could impact the success of writing an IVDR-compliant PER. By performing a gap analysis and assessing the readiness and availability of critical resources, documents and expertise, you will be able to avoid project delays and discover efficiencies that will enable the on-time completion of a successful, IVDR-compliant PER. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • The importance of scoping your PER project in advance  
  • The critical inputs needed to enable the success of your PER and the impact to the project if these inputs are not available or incomplete  
  • How to identify those hidden gaps in resources and information and the steps to take to mitigate them

How to Establish the Competitive Landscape Within the Scientific Validity Report

In this practical presentation, Dr. Sarah Chavez, will present a detailed outline of the IVDR State of the Art search within the Performance Evaluation Report (PER). Additionally, she will distinguish between the purpose and scope of the state-of-the-art and the Competitor search. For example, the SLR approach, data screening, and data presentation will be addressed.

You will learn:

  • The importance of the SOA SLR for providing background and general information
  • How to establish acceptance criteria with data
  • How to assess the safety and performance of your IVD with a systematic approach to the Competitor SLR process

Who should attend?

Those Regulatory, Quality and Clinical leaders and teams who develop, write, review or approve Performance Evaluation Reports for EU IVDR submission. Also, anyone interested in learning more about the competitive landscape within the Scientific Validity Report should attend.

IVDR Essentials: Performance Evaluation Report – Early Planning and Preparation

How can scoping help you identify critical internal documents needed for IVDR readiness? What are the benefits to beginning the process early? There are many moving pieces needed to write a PER, so we have developed strategies to keep you and your team on track and help assess your own level of preparedness. Using our CE Scoping checklist, we will walk through the necessary documents, SOPs, processes, reports, and templates, and explain how each of these fits into the overall process of preparing to write.

This presentation will emphasize the importance of scoping, discuss how to develop a checklist, and illustrate how scoping may help you identify gaps or missing pieces that could lead to delays or challenges in your PER writing process.

A Practical Guide: Conducting Systematic Literature Reviews in Support of IVDR Readiness

The implementation of IVDR requirements has challenged IVD manufacturers to align their internal processes and systems with these rigorous regulations. Therefore, companies realize reviewing published literature for device-specific clinical data to establish the state-of-the-art (scientific validity) is imperative. In addition, establishing clinical performance of their products is key. However, many manufacturers may not be familiar with or have the capability to perform rigorous, IVDR-compliant systematic literature reviews (SLR). Finally, screening, selection and data extraction are typically challenges for manufacturers as well.

In this presentation we break down the steps of the SLR process and take a wholistic approach to conducting an IVDR-compliant SLR. Next, using case studies, we illustrate the effective use of SLR-derived data to develop the Scientific Validity Report (SVR) and the Clinical Performance Report (CPR).

Key Takeaways:

  • Review the essential steps for conducting a robust, methodologically-sound systematic literature review
  • Using a typical case study scenario, learn how to effectively search, identify, screen, review and extract critical published clinical data on your subject IVD device to support the development of the Scientific Validity and Clinical Performance Reports.

[FREE WEBINAR] How to Establish the State of the Art Within the Scientific Validity Report

Click here to watch the recording of this webinar.

In this practical presentation, Criterion Edge presents focused strategies on building an IVDR-aligned State of the Art (SOA) section within the Scientific Validity Report (SVR). We also talk about the critical role of the SVR as it relates to the overall performance evaluation process.

Key Takeaways:

  • The foundational role of the SOA in the SVR
  • The required components of the SOA such as the safety and performance objectives
  • The importance of a robust systematic literature review (SLR) to support your SOA

Who Should Watch:

Those Regulatory, Quality and Clinical leaders and regulatory writers who are tasked with the development, writing, review, or approval of Scientific Validity Reports for EU IVDR submission, or anyone interested in learning more about the SOA section within the SVR.
