Avenda Health: Artificial Intelligence for Prostate Cancer Mapping & Treatment
Avenda’s artificial intelligence software supplies physicians with a cancer map with more precision and accuracy than a traditional MRI. This provides physicians with a clearer understanding of the extent of disease to improve patient outcomes.
The company's mission is to improve the quality of life, treatment planning, and outcomes for men diagnosed with prostate cancer. To get their novel device to market, Avenda needed a powerful and intuitive Quality Management System (QMS) built specifically for MedTech companies.
Avenda Health’s team is dispersed across the country. Collaboration across product development and quality teams was difficult without a single source of truth everyone could rely on.
Additionally, navigating the regulatory climate to bring their SaMD product to market was no easy feat. Staying up to date with requirements and documentation, all while ensuring the teams from coast to coast were aligned was a top priority for Avenda.
The Solution: Greenlight Guru
A QMS that also provides Industry Training, Templates, and Academy
Greenlight Guru dramatically improved the way Avenda’s business was collaborating on their medical device development, Womack added Partnering with Greenlight Guru has helped their team beyond providing them with a powerful QMS solution. They’ve found the industry education, SOP templates, courses, training workshops, and Greenlight Guru Academy to be useful.

Obtained their second 510(k) clearance

After obtaining FDA clearance, Avenda had the green light to hit the market with their Unfold AI device. They were able to do so with ease because all their documentation, training, and design history was easily accessible in their eQMS.
