Shipping daily while being CE-marked, is that a pipe dream?

The speed at which software is shipped has a massive impact on its quality. That's very difficult if you are CE-marked (most healthcare applications are). In this session, I'd like to help educate and answer any questions related to how quickly one can go while being regulated.

How to get approval for your medical device – despite all regulatory hurdles

The regulatory requirements that medical device manufacturers such as startups must fulfill are overwhelming: Quality systems, risk management systems, post-market surveillance, clinical evaluations (to name just a few) are the scope of continuous audits and reviews by authorities and notified bodies. Most companies already fail with applying for approval / certification. Professor Christian Johner, founder of the Johner Institute, and his team know all these traps and means to avoid them. Christian shares in this masterclass the step-by-step process how to successfully navigate this complex regulatory system, to avoid costly problems and delays in the approval processes and to get the products in the market fast and safely.

The end of medicine as we know it

Medicine needs digitalisation, but even more so it needs a fundamental paradigm shift. Currently, we hardly understand any disease. That’s why we name diseases only by a symptom in an organ and therapeutically can only alleviate symptoms, which is not only ineffective and imprecise but makes also many diseases chronic. There are many reasons for this innovation roadblock. The biggest conceptual error in Medicine, however, was to split up the human body organ by organ, including organ-specific clinics, specialists, and research disciplines. We believe we can define a disease by looking at one organ; any symptom in a different organ must be a different disease. Really? Rare diseases tell us, no! A big data-driven, holistic approach integrates all medical knowledge back into Systems Medicine to overcome this silo thinking by data science and bioinformatics. It revolutionises how we define diseases. Descriptive disease phenotypes are replaced by mechanistic definitions based on small cellular signalling modules that have become dysfunctional. Upon diagnosis of these in a patient, precise and effective therapeutic intervention is achieved by targeting several points in these networks at low doses, with less side effects and high efficacy. For this, we don’t even need new compounds. In most if not all cases, we can repurpose already registered drugs, obviating the need and costs for classical drug discovery, and speeding up the clinical translation and patent benefit. Thus, how we practice medicine will radically change, from treatment to cure and ideally prevention.
