9:40 am

  • Trusted, reliable products have most value to end-users in health delivery.
  • Because people’s lives depend on the products, they are regulated and must meet legal requirements.
  • There is a conflict between innovator’s need for speed and regulator’s need for certainty, which kills many projects.
  • There is a well defined pathway through this process that satisfies investors, developers, regulators and finally, end-users.
  • They key is to start the project the right way, not to be retrospectively filling in missing details.
  • ACMD is setting up an environment to create efficiencies in product and process development, and investment.
