Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) is a growing sector of the medical device industry. If you are interested in entering the SaMD space, what do you need to know when it comes to FDA regulations and guidelines?
In this episode of the Global Medical Device Podcast, Jon Speer talks to David Pudwill, “Mr. Regulatory”, who has nearly a decade of firsthand experience working for FDA.
Listen to Mr. Regulatory and Jon discuss all things related to SaMD from the perspective of FDA and how the agency is regulating these emerging medical device technologies.

“That definition in terms of functions is independent of the platform that they run on. So, FDA did a bunch of updates to some of their guidance documents to accommodate that change in definitions around the function.”

“FDA is trying to come into the modern era when it comes to software and how they think about that and how they think about software development.”
